The SIMULIA software portfolio can be configured depending on the needs and usage patterns within an organization. The table below highlights the various licensing configurations available followed by guidelines which may help in selecting the right package. All configurations are networked.
|Portfolio||Package||Base Tokens||Additional Tokens||CAE License Scheme||CAE||Summary|
|Abaqus Portfolio Pack||QPP||5||QPT||Token||-||Solver & CAE are token based|
|Abaqus/CAE Analysis Pack||QAP||5||QAT||Standalone||QAE||Only solver is token based|
|Abaqus Extended Tokens||QXT||1||QXT||Standalone||QAX||Only solver is token based|
The QPP configuration is highly flexible in that both CAE and the solvers utilize a common token licensing scheme. The basic Portfolio Pack includes 5 tokens. CAE requires 4 tokens while the solver will utilize 5 tokens for the first CPU core. With the basic configuration, CAE and the solver can not be running simulataneously without additional tokens (QPT). The Standard, Explicit and CFD solvers are included in the Portfolio Pack
The QAP configuration includes one sharable (networked) CAE license while the solvers utilize the token licensing scheme. Each solver will utilize 5 tokens for the first CPU core. Like the QPP configuration, the Standard, Explicit and CFD solvers are included.
The Abaqus Extended Token configuration is similar to the Abaqus Analysis Pack (QAP) in that the solvers utilize the token licensing scheme while the interface programs, including CAE, are based on standalone networked licenses. The QXT package allows access to other complementary programs including fe-safe, iSight, TOSCA and others. Unlike QPP and QAP, where the base pack contains 5 tokens, the QXT is a single token. Token requirements for each program described in the QPP and QAP remain the same.
