Oct 8, 2014: BETA CAE System S.A. announces the release of v1.0.4 of Simulation, Process, Data & Resources Manager (SPDRM) software.This release focuses on the correction of identified problems and issues with the previous releases.The most noticeable fixes are listed below.



Addressing the problem of contemporary CAE community to integrate data, processes and resources, BETA CAE Systems S.A. brings forth a new solution for driving high quality and effective virtual product development procedures.

This new software tool, the Simulation Process, Data & Resources Manager (SPDRM), provides a simple and intuitive way to capture, deploy, and manage CAE process workflows by integrating the resources, the tools, and the data associated with these.
Reflecting a deep understanding of the demands of simulation and its role in the enterprise, it couples with the enterprise PDM system and integrates CAE into higher level business processes by delivering CAE tasks and associated data to analysts, engineers, designers, suppliers, and managers.

The architecture and implementation of SPDRM is scalable, so that it can be deployed in different levels, such as in team, department or enterprise level. The system requirements are modest and the learning curve is smooth.

This new software for the orchestration and mastering of simulation procedures gives breakthrough solutions to the bottlenecks faced while using legacy tools.

SPDRM brings significant benefits to today’s virtual product development, such as:

- overall process consistency, at all levels
- standardization of the procedures
- harmonization of operations throughout the organization but also with its suppliers
- referability and traceability of data and meta-data, of their modifications and variations
- reduction of data redundancy
- process progress monitoring and the effective processes quality management
- reliable and referable documentation
- productivity increase thanks to the effective resources management through job delegation to available and competent resources
- repeatability of processes, even when using updated or different datasets and software tools
- quality improvement of the deliverables
- increase of confidence to CAE, plus the time and cost reduction of the overall simulation process

Known Issues Resolved

Data Management

An error could occur when importing folders or files under the DM tree structure.

Process Management
