Data Management System for Complex Mechanical Product in Collaborative Simulation Environment
In order to implement collaborative work in enterprises, it is important to exchange and share data during product design process. According to the characteristics and types of simulation data for mechanical properties analysis, an effective data management method is presented. Based on the functional framework of collaborative simulation environment, a new database system has been designed by combining relational database and content repository. The content repository for simulation data has been established and designed by user-defined node type whose model is a simple hierarchy. In this repository, simulation metadata have been stored as node properties. Furthermore, simulation data files can be stored in node which facilitates the upload and download of files. In the mean while, simulation flow data can be stored in relational database. An engineering application is employed to demonstrate the feasibility and practicability of the data management system.
