Managing the huge and constantly increasing amount of simulation data became an increasing challenge in Vehicle Dynamics and Multi Body Simulations for many companies: The need for global engineering collaboration and traceability of all simulation data requires a professional data management system. Even more so, only managed, structured and qualified data enables the usage of data-intensive technologies and practices, like AI, machine-learning or management by statistical insights.

To help solving these challenges, PDTec now provides a data management solution for Hexagon Adams Car: SDM4AC

SDM4AC enables

  • Transparency & Traceability
    • Data Structure Versioning
    • Where-Used Analysis
    • Meta Data & Search Functions
  • Collaboration & Reuse
    • References instead of Copies
    • User Workspace Synchronization
    • Branch, Diff & Merge Support
    • Library Data Managment
  • Security & Organization
    • Central Data Storage & Backup
    • User Management & Access Control
    • HPC / Batch Processing

SDM4AC manages Adams Car-related data across global teams and departments in one centralized database.

All Adams Car workspace data, such as chassis parameters, scenario files, FMU models or test runs, is checked in to and checked out from SDM4AC with minimal user effort.

SDM4AC then makes the simulation data available within the global corporation. enabling access control, data tracking, versioning, variant and quality management as well as reuse in new developments.

SDM4AC was designed to complement Adams Car as an open platform: The architecture offers well-defined customization and extension points, libraries and services, to efficiently integrate new tools, data types, services and processes.

SDM4AC’s data and processing architecture was designed to support large-scale scenario or product variant simulations.

Bidirectional relations of Adams Car data and typical systems engineering metadata, for example issue-, requirements- or test data management, can be easily established via PDTec’s Backend Connectors.

SDM4AC Features

  • HTML Web User Interface
  • Workspace Client
  • Model, Parameter Set and Test Run Management
  • Versioning, Release and Data Freeze Management
  • Data Model Customization
  • Graphical Structure Views
  • Service-oriented Software Architecture
  • Scripting / Service Integration API
  • HPC / Batch Processing
  • Multisite Installation


SDM4AC will provide a professional enterprise wide simulation data management solution for global companies to manage all their vehicle dynamics and multi body simulations for faster and optimized developments.
