Beschreibung

Nowadays, design and simulation software systems have become an absolutely essential part in development of complex products. Due to distributed development of complex technical systems like machine tools, different system components are modeled and simulated in independent program suits. This trend is promoted by concepts for integrated development processes like concurrent engineering or digital factory (German Engineers’ guideline VDI 4499). Established methods like product data management (PDM) or model data standards like STEP (ISO 10303) are part of these efforts to realize continuous data exchange. These standards specify exchange of model data, but communication during concurrent simulations is not standardized yet. Therefore, the SimBus (Simulation Bus) was developed to close this gap. This novel software architecture allows flexible coupling and implementation of existing simulation software suits.
