Overview Simulation Process & Data Management (SPDM) is a technology deployed by high performance industrial organisations since the year 2000 to build and maintain the Digital Thread of the data used, and the decisions taken, to predict the performance and lifetime of engineered products. The records in an SDM solution enable these companies to rapidly stand up a functional Digital Twin of an actual product to support manufacturing or operations. These organisations use SDM to assure the quality of simulations, provide traceability of results and increase engineering throughput. While the business impact of the successful adoption of SDM and SPDM within mainstream product development has been impressive, many organisations have struggled with the adoption of a variety of information systems to manage simulation data. The Simulation Data Management Working Group therefore commissioned a publication to disseminate best practice regarding the adoption of Simulation Data Management. This webinar summarises the material in the upcoming NAFEMS publication “How to get Started with Simulation Data Management”. After a brief description of the key aspects of SDM and SPDM solutions and an update on the state of the art in industry after 2 decades of deployments of commercial solutions, it describes how to approach an SDM project and achieve a first successful SDM deployment. It describes how todevelop an SDM strategy and justify an SDM project, how to identify a project manager, how to prepare to engage with stakeholders within the organisation and with potential solution vendors, how to identify the capabilities your organisation will require, running a proof of concept and building a project plan for a first deployment. It also describes common pitfalls to avoid. Intended Audience: Engineeering and Simulation Managers intending to start a project to select and deploy an SDM or SPDM solution.
