ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager Desktop
ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (EKM) Desktop is a single-user, local environment version of the web-based multi-user collaborative ANSYS EKM product. It is available as part of ANSYS 13.0 and can be accessed via the ANSYS Workbench environment. The technology is focused on meeting the challenge of reusing existing simulations by offering simulation data search, retrieval, and reporting features that can increase simulation productivity and efficiency.
ANSYS EKM Desktop is integrated with ANSYS Workbench and facilitates managing simulation data from multiple ANSYS Workbench projects. ANSYS EKM Desktop is a single-user, local desktop tool that allows users to add files from any project to a virtual repository from their local machine, mapped drive or external data storage device. Simulation properties and other meta-data are automatically extracted (or created) from files when added, and users can tag files with unique identifiers at any time. These attributes can all be used to search and retrieve files based on keywords or complex search criteria. Reports can be generated that compare simulation property similarities and differences between multiple files as well as provide result summaries.
