CIMdata Publishes “Beyond Simulation Data Management”

Why Innovative Approaches are Required

CIMdata, the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) consulting and research firm announces a new paper advising simulation (CAE) users on the issues posed by the exploding volume of simulation data. The importance and the use of simulation in product development are increasing, as companies are making more product development decisions based on simulation. The number of simulations will dramatically increase as techniques for optimization and robust engineering are adopted. The resulting massive increase in simulation data raises concerns about our capability to deal with it effectively. Simulation analytics provides a way to extract relevant information and understand trends across hundreds or thousands of simulations. Companies need to adopt improved business practices to manage their simulation data, and to guard against warehousing data that may, in fact, never be accessed. “Beyond Simulation Data Management” is available to be freely downloaded here.
