Aras is committed to bringing effective SPDM to the Aras Innovator enterprise platform. Enabling simulation results automatically in the product configuration – including variants and options – provides a closed-loop for traceability to reduce physical testing, verify requirements and improve design-space exploration. Aras views better tool chaining and data management of simulation results as foundational to Digital Thread enablement and strategic initiatives such as additive manufacturing, generative design and Digital Twin simulation. In this session, we will present our vision for effective SPDM, including robust simulation automation, as part of the enterprise Digital Thread.
Glenn Valine (Engineering Director, Virtual Tools Development, GKN Automotive) will present GKN's use of the Aras Comet SPDM simulation automation platform. GKN has created Simulation Apps used by their global engineering team to rapidly and accurately perform complex automotive driveline simulations. Glenn will discuss the challenges and the Do's and Don’ts of creating successful simulation apps, and the benefits that GKN has seen.
