How OS/OD/OH is used?

Semantum has been actively developing Simantics, an open source integration platform for modeling and simulation. Efficient and reliable Simantics related development and maintenance services can be purchased from the Semantum Store. The Simantics system has client-server architecture with a semantic ontology-based modelling database and Eclipse framework -based client software with plug-in interface. The Simantics platform and many of its components are open source under Eclipse Public License EPL.

Simantics’ origins are at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Its development was started in September 2006 as an internal research and development project for modelling and simulation data management. After several years and lots of work, the platform has become mature and the application of the software platform is spreading. From the very beginning of the project one objective was made clear: the platform development must aim to a growing and vital software product. Beside the technical development, also the building of community and ecosystem was started. In the beginning of year 2010, the THTH/Simantics division was initiated as the outcome of the effort. THTH/Simantics is the new home for Simantics and will act as a neutral contact point and collaboration frame for all the development and activity around Simantics.
