j2 Universal Framework
The j2 Universal Framework is the main application, data management, and licensing system of the J2 Universal Tool-Kit. The Framework is connected to a central database so all users can access it and project work can be shared across the network. This helps to avoid any data transcription errors or re-work. The j2 Universal Framework handles all the configuration control, plug-in and user access management, and provides a data centric approach to building an aircraft design, modelling (Digital Twin creation)and analysis and simulation capability.
In any design project the use and selection of units has always been a source of significant error and re-work. The j2 Universal Framework provides a Windows Graphical Environment that hosts dockable and configurable windows and affords end users the ability to set up their own customised windows views as required.
The Task Ribbon at the top of the window is context sensitive providing quick access to the available functions of whatever is selected.
The j2 Universal Framework is responsible for managing the Units that are being used. Units can be changed to whatever is needed to suit the input or display of information to suit the user, provided the units requested match the physical entity.
All models and analyses are fully Configuration Controlled to enable projects to be tracked and to avoid re-work caused when working with out-of-date information.
Each users input is recorded, enabling projects progress to be tracked across the network and providing a fully traceable change management capability that will lead to a drastic reduction in the need for re-work and therefore reducing effort and costs.
