TRACEABILITY OF SIMULATION DATA IN A PLM ENVIRONMENT: PROPOSITION OF A STEP-BASED SYSTEM THAT SUPPORT PARAMETER INTEGRATION
The exchanges between experts represent a key challenge for collaborative product development. It is based on prior researches developed in the domain of Simulation Data Management and proposes the use of parameter manager integrated to the SDM and offering a full integration with the CAD Application. This parameter manager enables the updates of geometric modifications into the SDM in order to manipulate multiple geometrical configurations of the product analysed. It conducts to results using different geometrical configurations based on the same FEA Analysis and provides information regarding the impact of the geometrical parameters on the FEA. Finally, first experimentations are set and in-coming researches are presented.
