Oracle Database Optimization for MSC SimManager using Oracle's Sun Flash
During past decades simulation has become an indispensable tool for manufacturers worldwide to improve their products, for example in Aerospace, Automotive, Shipbuilding, electronics, consumer goods, and other industries. However, the growing amount, size and complexity of simulations lead to a huge amount of simulation data and processes. Today, these data and processes are business critical assets, to be available in real-time, enterprise wide, 24x7. For this purpose, simulation management systems have been developed for managing simulation data and processes creating this data. These systems are usually based on a multi-tier architecture with business logic, database and file vaults to allow efficient management of even the highest volumes of data. For this purpose, simulation management systems such as MSC SimManager have been developed. For further information on MSC SimManager please see: http://www.mscsoftware.com/Products/Virtual-‐Build-‐And-‐Test-‐Management/SimManager.aspx. As shown in this paper, MSC SimManager utilizes the Oracle database for efficient management of meta-data.
