BETA CAE Systems S.A. announces the release of SPDRM v1.1.2.

This version delivers several most anticipated enhancements, along with a number of resolved known issues, to the users of the most advanced Simulation Process Data and Resources Management tool.

The most noticeable software enhancements and code corrections are listed below.



The Apache POI libraries have been integrated to the SPDRM Client package so as for the scripting API to enable the manipulation (i.e. read/write) of Excel, Word and PowerPoint files (for MS Office 97-2007).

Known Issues Resolved

Process Management

In some cases, the process execution could stop responding, although the SPDRM Client was responsive in other operations (e.g. data navigation, data export).

It was not possible to instantiate a node inside a sub-process in the "Process Visual Panel" window.

The filename was missing in the "File Name" column of the MxN Instances list.

Data Management

The "LIBRARY_ITEMS" container could not be expanded and the linked folders could not be listed on the data tree, while the "Mine only" or the "My group" filtered views were used.

In some cases, the import of a folder under a DM item could fail.

The history graph was not displayed for the "base" component and simulation model.

In some cases, the 'Edit' option for a DM item was disabled, although the user had "Modify" rights on it.

An error could occur when trying to delete massively a large number of folders.


The performance of the script functions: dm.createDMItem, dm.queryFiles, and dm.getHandleIdOfDMItemAttachment has been improved.

ANSA Connect

ANSA failed to connect to the SPDRM server, through the "Set DM Paths > Connect Options" dialog, while the LDAP authentication method was used.

In some cases, the hierarchy and/or the image of the component could fail to be saved from ANSA v16.0.x.


An error could occur when switching quickly among different simulation models with very big history tree, while the history graph was open.

The "Open" button could be unreachable when a large number of files were selected in the File Browser.

The File Browser could not list the windows NTFS mounted drives.


Updated configuration files

Updated data model and data views configuration files (dm_structure_TBM.xml, data_views.xml).


All files required for the installation of this version reside in the folder named:
"SPDRM_v1.1.2" and are dated as of October 5, 2015.
These files should replace any pre-releases or other files downloaded, whcih had a date-stamp earlier to the above.
