Added value by linking up existing data stores

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.
