EXPRESS Data Manager™ (EDM) has been applied to build the following four products in support of the simulation and engineering analysis domains:
EDMopenSimDM™ addresses mainly two business needs: simulation data management and engineering data archival and retention. EDMopenSimDM™ adopts product data management paradigms to engineering analysis to assist the user – both during product engineering and product operation - in managing and configuring design and analysis data. EDMopenSimDM™ has applied the solutions for archival of digital engineering data offered by the ASD/AIA LOTAR initiative. These solutions are based upon the OAIS-standard (ISO 14721). They cope with the recent move to model-based engineering, which challenges established methods of data archival.
The openness of the application stems from its use of international standards, mainly ISO 10303 for the representation of industrial data and particularly ISO 10303-209 edition 2 (AP209ed2), Multidisciplinary analysis and design.The target group for EDMopenSimDM™ are manufacturers and users of complex engineering assets, such as aircraft, spacecraft, and offshore processing facilities. EDMopenSimDM™ offers to them capabilities, such as:
EDMopenSimDM™ is founded on the Jotne product EDMserver™.

EDMopenSimDM™ offers specific functionality for data that are formatted in compliance with ISO 10303-209 edition 2 (AP209ed2), Multidisciplinary analysis and design. The benefits of using AP209ed2 grow with the number of applications that can read and write this format. Jotne, therefore, launched an Application Programmers Interface (API) to ease access to AP209ed2 data. This API is part of the EDM software development kit (SDK) EDMdeveloper™. The target group for this SDK are vendors and developers of simulation software.
The AP209ed2 API is implemented as an early binding EDM C++ binding. The API includes a business object layer to hide complexity of the AP209ed2 model that is not needed in a converter development context.
The API was validated and refined during the development of converters from NASTRAN and Abaqus to AP209ed2. See below, for descriptions of those products.

The EDMconverter(NASTRAN-to-AP209 )™ is a utility used to transform finite element models from NASTRAN native solver format to the ISO 10303-209ed2 format.
The converter supports the most common inputs used in linear structural analysis models for NASTRAN finite element solvers.
This translator uses EDMinterface(C++/AP209)™.
NASTRAN is a finite element analysis (FEA) program that was originally developed for NASA.

The EDMconverter(Abaqus-to-AP209 )™ is a utility used to transform finite element models from Abaqus native solver format to the ISO 10303-209ed2 format. The converter supports the most common inputs used in linear structural analysis models for Abaqus finite element solvers. This translator uses EDMinterface(C++/AP209)™. Abaqus Unified FEA (formerly ABAQUS) is a software suite for finite element analysis (FEA) and computer-aided engineering (CAE), originally released in 1978, and now under the Dassault Systems Simulia portfolio.
