The upcoming release of ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (EKM) will support integration of VCollab technologies from Visual Collaboration. ANSYS EKM is a comprehensive solution for simulation-based process and data management challenges. ANSYS EKM provides solutions and benefits to all levels of the enterprise, from the individual engineer to the entire organization. VCollab technologies will be integrated as a supported 3rd party into ANSYS EKM to facilitate automated metadata extraction for non ANSYS simulations, CAE results compression and advanced CAE results collaboration/viewing for a wide range of simulatVisualisation of product data is a very important requirement in product development. PSG College of Technology with its excellent facilities and expertise on CAD/CAE /CAM/Virtual Reality and M/s Visual Collaboration Technologies, Michigan, Troy, USA, a company engaged in the development of Product visualization software (under the brand of VCollab) signed the MOU for joint academic program and research. VCollab solutions include large data handling, CAE data reduction, 3D visualization and Collaboration.
With this MOU, human resource with skills on the creation of Virtual environments and systems for product development will be created in the country. Such manpower is needed for several sectors of industry like aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, construction and healthcare. These technologies can reduce the cost of product development and improve innovations.
Department of Production engineering, Department of Computer Science & Engineering and Department of Mathematics and Computer Applications will be jointly working on the academic program and research in this area.
Dr. Rudramoorthy, Principal, PSG College of Technology, and Mr. Prasad Mandava, CEO, Visual Collaboration Technologies signed the MOU. Dr. R.K. Ramanathan, Consultant and Advisor, Visual Collaboration Technologies, Dr. K.Prakasan, HOD, Dept of Production Engineering, Dr. S N Sivanandam HOD, Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the faculty of the departments were present on the occasion.ons.
