How ANSYS EKM Products Interact with ANSYS Workbench
From within the Workbench environment, EKM Connector allows users to “connect” directly to an existing EKM Workgroup or Enterprise server installation. This provides the individual Workbench user with access to a centralized “collective” repository that is accessible by other workgroup users or an entire enterprise.
