Ansys is helping Mann and Hummel to access and reuse historical engineering simulation information for speeding the creation of new automotive designs.

The German family-owned company has licensed Ansys Engineering Knowledge Manager (EKM) technology, which manages the data generated by computer-aided engineering (CAE) activities.

Automotive supplier Mann and Hummel faces data-related challenges as its simulation teams are distributed around the world and need to archive and access the computational fluid dynamics information they generate.

The company uses CFD software from Ansys in various areas, such as the design of elements for air, fuel and oil filtration for modern fuel-efficient engines.

Fluid flow simulations quickly calculate vital parameters such as pressure loss and filtration efficiency.

‘We have engineers in Europe and India who frequently need to collaborate in real time while performing CAE analyses,’ said Dr Martin Lehmann, head of simulation filter elements at Mann and Hummel.

‘The capabilities of Ansys EKM enable us to share simulation data very effectively across multiple locations,’ he added.

‘The product’s extensive data-management capabilities make it straightforward for our engineers to organise and track multiple versions of files that are created during a typical design and analysis cycle,’ said Lehmann.

‘Apart from enabling archiving and collaboration, Ansys EKM helps organisations optimise the design workflow through more effective use of engineering simulation tools,’ said Dipankar Choudhury, vice-president of corporate product strategy and planning at Ansys.

‘This can result in a range of improvements, including enterprise standards for work procedures, consolidation and automation of best practices,’ he added.
