ANSYS EKM Desktop
With the ongoing integration of simulation into product design, effective collaboration and communication is essential for successful product development in today’s global environment. ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (EKM) solutions are aimed at meeting simulation process and data management (SPDM) challenges faced by the engineering simulation and computer-aided engineering (CAE) communities. ANSYS EKM software addresses issues such as how to better manage, share and reuse simulation data and how to better capture and reuse engineering expertise that a simulation result represents. It is focused primarily on improving the day-to-day activities of CAE practitioners and can be used to enhance collaboration and enable more effective communication for successful product and process development. ANSYS EKM Desktop software is a single-user, local-environment version of the web-based multiuser collaborative ANSYS EKM product. It is available as part of the ANSYS 12.0 release and can be accessed via the ANSYS Workbench platform. The ANSYS EKM Desktop tool 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.
