openSPDM R3

We have now completed porting and packaging openSPDMfor release 2023 of Aras Innovator, this is the 14 platform. Release 2023 of Innovator can be downloaded from the Aras website without a licence committment for Proofs of Concept of Simulation Data Management (SDM) and also of Model-Based Systems Engineering(MBSE) using the System Architecture module and of system simulation. openSPDM R3 should run on any Innovator version after 23 with the SM object model installed.

openSPDM R3 has a neutral connector framework which enables interactive simulation applications to be plugged in rapidly, days to weeks, rather than months to years with legacy integration approaches. We’ve built several connectors to popular Computer Aided Engineering applications through collaboration with accademia and leading industrial companies. These include Hyperworks, Abaqus CAE, Coreform Cubit and LS-DYNA. These enable you to manage your data, launch applications while loading data from the platform and save your work back to the platform. This is the essential condition to move to a digital platform from the file system. There are videos of the four connectors on the Videos and Deonstrations tab.

I am working on documentation and will post a video and presentation sumarising all the functions shortly. This software will be distributed to organisations joining the openSPDM consortium under the GPL3 open-source licence.

Please get in touch if you are interested to evaluate and enhance an open-source SPDM solution.

openSPDM R2

we have been so busy developing new capabilities in openSPDM that we have not had time to update the website.
With openSPDM R1 we built Cerber for Safran Aircraft Engines, Conception et Etudes de Roulements a Bille Et a Rouleau – Design and Analysis of Ball and Roller Bearings. There is a presentation from Safran on the NAFEMS website and on website.
openSPDM R2 adopted the object datamodel from Aras for their Simulation Management module: Study- Artifact – Simulation Task. this was first deployed for simulation of Nuclear Fusion Reactors at the UKAEA and described in the presentation on this site under the videos tab.
openSPDM R2 was then extended for a Proof of Value at Valeo which was reported at the NAFEMS french regional conference in 2022.
I will be posting detailed descriptions of functionality and demos shortly.

The website for the openSPDM initiative

Welcome to openSPDM! This is the initiative to develop an open source SDM solution for simulation engineers worldwide.

Simulation Data Management is an established technology that enables Analysts, Simulation Engineers to manage complete simulation data sets including Process data. This is why SDM is often called SPDM.

Today, openSPDM is a reality. We’ve completed the first proof of concept at an industrial organisation and will shortly be posting video demos and detailed information.

Please get in touch if an open SDPM solution is of interest to your organisation.

Happy New Year
