Test systems and CAE applications are very specific in terms of navigation and presentation of results. Equally diverse are the underlying data formats and database structures for storing test results, simulation models, calibration parameters, test parts and measuring equipment. With the help of an intelligent link layer (for example a Data Communication Bus) it is possible to connect these different “worlds” together.
In this case, the data remain physically in their original databases and are only set to one another in the context of a specific application. So you can for example elicit, with which calibration data specific measurement values were created and what current configuration state the unit under test had. These findings can be for example in further steps set in relationship with certain configurations for driving tests.
Based on this approach, completely new applications can be setup, which allow unprecedented insights into the development. An example is the tracking of dependencies across different data sources and the generation of new knowledge, based on existing, in proprietary sources stored knowledge. Events in a source can be detected and trigger actions in another source.
Thus, development processes are much faster and easier to understand.
