In PDTec, SimData Manager

PDTec’s SimData Manager is now available for use by HyperWorks customers.


TROY, Mich. – Oct. 05, 2016 – The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) added SimData Manager from PDTec AG to its software offering today. SimData Manager provides simulation data management for efficient and systematic access to all simulation-relevant data throughout the entire computer-aided engineering (CAE) process chain.

“SimData Manager is an excellent addition to Altair’s software lineup,” said Detlef Schneider, Senior Vice President of EMEA at Altair. “CAE data management is important to almost all of our customers, so being able to offer them this capability is a great asset. We look forward to growing this partnership and seeing how we can improve our customers’ experience in the future.”

SimData Manager provides an enterprise CAE data management system to help analysts easily keep up with the constantly increasing number of simulation runs across all disciplines and the global collaboration of simulation activities along the supply chain. The software traces CAD geometries throughout the process to the final analysis reports and various simulation models and vice versa, making it so engineers are always aware of which computer-aided design (CAD) geometry was the base for their simulation models in order to easily select the related analysis results from the SDM system.

“PDTec is excited to become a member of the Altair Partner Alliance,” said Albrecht Pfaff, Head of Sales and Marketing at PDTec. “We see great opportunities for Altair’s customers to leverage the new partnership and get access to PDTec’ s SimData Manager via HyperWorks Units. Most larger organizations are challenged by the size of CAE data and the extension of CAE into many disciplines. Global simulation teams want to share their analysis results and work on joint CAE projects. SimData Manager provides a central enterprise system to manage all CAE data globally.”

SimData Manager improves project efficiency and overall success by notifying analysts of any updates to the CAD models during simultaneous engineering processes, making it so they are able to decide if changes are necessary for the current simulation. HyperMesh, HyperView and HyperGraph have also been integrated with SimData Manager to make the process of accessing CAE data even more seamless for engineers already working in the HyperWorks environment.

The introductory webinar for PDTec will be held on October 13 at 10 a.m. ET. (16:00 CET) For more information about the software, please visit the product page:
