Introduction to Simulation Data and Process Management in LoCo

The software system LoCo is a work environment for managing simulation data and processes. In particular, the distributed development through simulation, across locations within a company or with external development partners, is greatly supported by LoCo.

Simulation models are managed in LoCo and provided to users via a graphical user interface in a structured manner. Due to the integrated version management, any changes made by the user to the simulation models can be tracked. So-called "History Trees" show all changes during the development process. In addition, LoCo provides an environment for the integration of arbitrary, user-specific specialized CAE processes like model/load case construction, quality control, parameter studies, linked simulations, etc.

On the first day, the seminar provides participants the basic knowledge of how to use LoCo. In-depth knowledge in the application of LoCo is dealt with on the optional second day. The usage of the software and the realization of workflows for the daily work as a design engineer will be presented in detail.
