Abaqus and Catia on Windows 10

Abaqus Licensing

Abaqus’ licensing structure is intended to be flexible enough to be appropriate for a single consultant or for a fortune 100 company. As always, with flexibility comes complexity. The purpose of this article is to unpack the options and help you choose the best configuration for where you are today. I say today, since usually it is not an issue to change to a different strategy at a later date.   The licensing is token-based just like what you find in an arcade where some games take 1 token and others may require more. I’ll break this down to tokens needed for Simulation and GUI with a middle section on the various types of tokens.
