How to Integrate Cloud Based IoT/CPS to Simulation and Testing Processes

How to Integrate Cloud Based IoT/CPS to Simulation and Testing Processes using ISO 10303 and Digital Twin Based Crane Monitoring

Simulation Data Management Community Meeting



This presentation introduced the ISO 10303 STEP standard with a focus on how users can connect IIoT/CPS solutions and its sensor data directly to CAD, CAE and PLM/SDM models, ensuring performant data exchange, sharing and archiving processes. Several examples were highlighted, like the Mountain Bike, the Crane of the Gunnerus research vessel and more. The IIoT/CPS Implementation is based on the open source software "Arrowhead Framework”, now also available in the Eclipse environment.

Some additional details here for the Arrowhead Project and ISO 10303 here.

The NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Working Group regularly invites solution providers to their meetings to describe their Simulation Data Management solutions.

Presenters are asked to bias their presentation to a technical audience of simulation experts and ensure that the content is focused on the technical aspects of the solution offering. When possible, reference customers should be identified.

The NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Community

The Simulation Data Management Community allows the NAFEMS membership to engage with our Simulation Data Management Working Group. The Simulation Data Management Community is only accessible to NAFEMS members, no significant knowledge or expertise is required to participate and you are not committing your time by joining the Community. The only requirement is a desire to learn more and interact with other engineers and scientists who have an interest in Simulation Data Management.

Click the button below to join the Simulation Data Management Community and you will receive a personal email from the technical team at NAFEMS regarding relevant upcoming Simulation Data Management Community activities.
