Long Term Data Archiving (LTDA) incorporating Validation & Checking

Theorem Solutions provides long term data archiving solutions using STEP and JT to Archive Engineering and Manufacturing data incorporating automated Validation & Checking procedures!

Businesses of all sizes must archive engineering and manufacturing data in order to meet legal and product liability obligations, however, historically, it has only ever been possible to archive 2D data using formats like Tiff, CGM or even microfilm. Whereas today’s 3D data contains much richer content and can be archived as full representations.

3D CAD data is proprietary though, so unsuitable for long term data archiving. Eventually, operating systems and hardware used to create and store 3D data will also become obsolete.

STEP and JT are now considered the safest formats to use because they are neutral standards based formats that aren’t proprietary

Choosing a format to get proprietary data into is not a complete solution!

Using Theorem’s Long Term Data Archiving Solutions powered by TPM (Theorem Process Manager) which incorporates automated validation & checking procedures at the point of archive completes the process by avoiding corrupt or invalid legacy data being stored.

Theorem’s automated Long Term Data Archiving tools stop the costly problem of legacy data arising. Theorem can tailor and automate the entire archival process in-line with existing procedures and processes to migrate current 3D design data into the STEP or JT data formats then validate and check that the archived data has been correctly created and stored. Email notifications are sent at every point of the process!

Theorem’s automated Long Term Data Archiving solutions can be of benefit:

  • Remove the cost of maintaining Legacy Data and Proprietary Systems
  • Provide a solution to stop the problem of legacy data arising again
  • Help maintain data for 35-50 years
  • Integrate and automate validation and checking applications in to the process.
  • Process and validate existing legacy data in to the chosen archive format
  • Provide automated notification and support interactive review of corrupt or invalid data
  • Define automated alternate solutions for data that fails the standard process. This may include changes to acceptance criteria
  • Assist in the selection of archive format
  • Provide STEP and JT translators
  • Tailored solutions to meet any Long Term Archiving requirement inline with existing procedures and processes
  • Theorem’s CADverter translation products have 20+ years of industrial use, robustness and quality is well proven, reducing your business risk.

Incorporate Validation and Checking tools into any CAD Data Exchange Process

Theorem Solutions provides fully tailored solutions to meet any data Validation & Checking requirement in-line with existing company procedures and processes.

Theorem Solutions Validation and Checking Solutions can be incorporated into any translation process to verify that the resulting translated data is the same as the original source data, helping to overcome one of the most challenging aspects of data exchange.

Whatever data validation & checking process used, if any at all, Theorem has the ability to automate the entire process guaranteeing the resulting data is what it says it is!

Generic processes can be developed removing the manual and time consuming task of the checker to compare every reported message from each translation.

Theorem’s Process Manager (TPM) automatically summarizes them in to a report. If and only if the messages indicate a condition that should be checked, will an exception report be produced and a requirement for manual examination of a specific translation is then automatically triggered.

Theorem’s solutions support all common validation types including: Mass Properties, Cloud of Points and PMI/MBD.

Different data types that can be validated & checked include: 3D CAD Geometry, 3D Product Structure, 3D CAD PMI (GD&T), 2D Data.

Theorem’s Validation and Checking solutions:

  • Save time and resource by automating manual data checking procedures
  • Verify translated data is the same as the original source data with fully automated processes
  • Summarized notifications are automatically produced, highlighting potential issues arising from translation
  • Tailored solutions to meet any data validation & checking requirement inline with existing procedures and processes
  • All common data validation types supported including: Mass Properties, Cloud of Points and PMI/MBD

Theorem’s CADverter translation products have 20+ years of industrial use, robustness and quality is well proven, reducing your business risk.
