managing Ansys files

Has anyone used Windchill to do the following :

 

 

For any of Ansys, Abaqus, or Star-CCM+, an analysis contains:

  • All documentation and notes;
  • Analysis geometry, setup, input files;
  • Reports, slide decks, non-direct analysis results (i.e. excel or Mathcad calculations);
  • Anything else produced to support the effort during the analysis;
  • txt file and all files necessary to recreate the results.

 

These are split up into ~5 different folders for organization. Each folder may have up to hundreds of sub files and folders.

 

We would want a system which would retain all of the files except certain file extension types we have identified which are the results files. These could be recreated at a later date a represent many TBs of data. I would want this step to be automated.

 

Every analysis reports to a part number (or assembly number) and can be categorized into its analysis type (Structural, Thermal, CFD, EMag, Coupled, etc.). Sometimes there is an add-on analysis or an updated requirement that requires a re-run or a change that we should capture.
