Today, many manufacturers are facing tremendous challenges related to the storage and retrieval of simulation data. Product Data Management (PDM) systems are not capable of handling the terabytes of information which are generated as a result of performing these complex simulations. Simulation Data Management (SDM) provides a mechanism for the storage, management, and retrieval of this performance-related data. This work session addresses this breakthrough technology by helping participants better understand the benefits gained from implementing a Simulation Data Management system and how to save time, reduce development costs, and improve time-to-market.


  1. Define SDM
  2. Establish the importance of SDM
  3. Differentiate Product Data Management (PDM) from Simulation Data Management (SDM)
  4. Review benefits gained through the use of an SDM system
  5. Determine the typical environment in which data would be managed and where it would best be implemented
  6. Review various vendor strategies to address the management of simulation data ( view additional details )
