Use of computational methods with multidisciplinary models and simulation has been identified as one of the key factors for major progress in research and rapid development of advanced products. However, lack of software tools that allow integration and management of the modelling and simulation data from various disciplines has remained a bottleneck in the wide application of computational methods both in research and industry. The purpose of this task is to identify challenges and problems faced by the design engineer during the modelling and simulation phase of the product development and design process. The objectives of this task are to identify the possibilities for data exchange between simulation tools and accessibility and exchange of data among teams and between tools. In this report, data exchange between various simulation tools has been stated together with the Simulation Lifecycle Management tools. The report also describes various middleware that plays an important role in the transfer of data between the tools. This document gives the foundations for the SIMPRO project task 4.3, which studies the use of simulations over the product lifecycle using the selected case studies. Tools will be studied and used among different aprocesses and interacting with different software and specialists.
