Higher product functionality with shorter production cycles at the same time. Almost every manufacturing company is struggling with this pressure. To cope with this, simulation tools enable designs and functionality of the product to be digitally validated at an early stage of development. Through this digital prototyping, designers gain crucial insights for further product development at every stage of the creation process. This approach reduces development time and costs at the same time.
The new XPLM integration integrates ANSYS Minerva, the market-leading system for managing simulation processes and data, with your PLM systems. Stored centrally and together with the associated product data, the analyses serve (cross-domain) collaboration as well as company-wide knowledge exchange.
Sophisticated simulation processes play an essential role in the quality assurance of technical products. Native CAD data and models form the basis of calculation for stress, flow, or thermal analyses. However, without a suitable interface, transferring data from the PLM systems to Minerva is difficult. In order to completely digitalise the data streams within the engineering ecosystem, Ansys , market leader for simulation tools, and XPLM, specialist for direct integration, have joined forces as part of a technology partnership. In this way, a connection has been created between simulation and interdisciplinary design and the entire product life cycle.
