We will commemorate 15 years of SPDM success in Munich which began with go-live of Virtual Insight at BMW on 19th December 2000. Josef Reicheneder of BMW group will deliver the first Keynote presentation, 15 Years SPDM@BMW, taking us on the journey from the first deployment of a commercial SDM solution through the migrations to next-generation SDM solution, the achievements of today and the challenges or the future. SDM is a core enterprise system at BMW. Ferdinand Dirschmid explained at the NAFEMS World Congress 2015 that SDM had been fundamental to the execution of the virtual engineering required to bring the iconic BMW i8 composite hybrid sports car into the showrooms in only 42 months. This entailed new body and powertrain concepts, new simulation methods, new manufacturing processes and a new factory; not just a new model based on existing technology.
BMW is not the only Munich-based company that relies heavily on SPDM for engineering success. Johann Beck of Audi in Ingolstadt near Munich will describe why efficient management of data is absolutely essential to minimising time to market for an ever widening range of vehicles and vehicle derivatives. Audi has a long history of driving SDM innovation and Mr. Beck will describe the evolving SDM architecture.
Munich has become a centre for SDM development as well as for SDM usage. Michael Schlenkrich, who led the original BMW project, will share his vision of future directions of SDM based on 15 years of wide ranging SDM experience. Later in the conference Marko Thiele of Scale will describe the latest evolution of LoadCase Composer (LoCo) and its usage within the Audi vehicle simulation process.
Other Munich-based companies presenting include Tesis DYNAware who will speak about a distributed modularised model architecture for simulation of automotive electronic systems. The state of the art of SDM is also being advanced by the Technical University of Munich and Sebastian Schweigert will speak about process definitions and improvements for automotive suppliers.
Munich is not the only region of Germany represented as Thorsten Pohl will give a keynote on the deployment of SDM at GM he is leading out of Opel. Jan Theilen of Volkswagen will talk about their virtual process chain. Then Rainer Illig and Holger Wenzel of Dassault Systemes will discuss the management of simulation processes of different levels of maturity.
Automotive OEM’s are also represented by Ralph Heimüller of MAN Truck & Bus who will speak about the effective management of material data for simulation. Another solution for materials data management will then be described by Reimund Dann of Thinkstep.
Jochen Boy of ProStep will lead a section describing evolving standards for automotive and aerospace industries including a paper on Long Term Archiving and Retrieval (LOTAR) from Albert Levy of Airbus Toulouse. Adrian Murton from Airbus will give a keynote on the standards-based future of simulation collaboration and describe the development of the MoSSEC standard. Caroline Raick will describe the success of a common platform for the structural analysis of the A350WB program.
Contributions describing the deployment of SDM at Volvo-Eicher Commercial Vehicles in India, large scale multi-variable optimisation of aircraft systems from Datadvance of Russia and data-models for SDM from vCollab the USA complement the many papers submitted from within Europe.
The point of view of supplier companies will be represented with a keynote from Steve Minter of GKN Driveline describing how they will take forward their successful SDM deployment. The needs of medium sized companies will also be addressed. Several practitioners, including ISKO engineers :EM engineering methods and Mark Norris of theSDMconsultancy will speak about successful deployment of SDM into companies of all sizes.
It’s not possible to describe all the topics which will be covered at this 3rd European SPDM conference. So please have a look at the agenda on the following pages and register for the conference at www.nafems.org/spdm2015.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Munich.
Mark Norris, Peter Bartholomew NAFEMS SDM Working Group
This conference will be co-located (two common plenary sessions) with the NAFEMS European Conference: CFD – Beyond the Solve. SPDM conference delegates have equal access to the CFD conference and vice versa.
Optional Pre-Conference Training Sessions on Tuesday, 1 December
15:00 - 16:30: Introduction to SPDM by Peter Bartholomew
This session will provide an overview to the fundamentals of Simulation Data Management. It will serve equally well as a basic introduction to those that are new to the technology, and a refresher for those who already have an elementary understanding of the concepts. It will provide an excellent foundation for delegateswho want to learn more about SPDM.
16:30 - 17:30: Introduction to SPDM Solutions by Mark Norris
This session will provide an overview of the four generations of SPDM solutions, the types of suppliers of SPDM solution (PLM vendors, CAE Vendors, SDM vendors, Standards Solution Vendors,...) and the types of SPDM solutions available. This session is particularly relevant to delegates investigating the acquisition of an SPDM solution.
17:30 - 19:00: Introduction to Business Value from SDM – NAFEMS White Paper by Mark Norris
There are many strategies that companies can deploy when looking to implement an SDM solution. The NAFEMS SDM Working Group has developed and published a White Paper which has the clear objective of helping engineers to understand and to communicate the business value of SDM to their organization. This short training session will provide a summary of the White Paper and an interpretation of its key messages.
