Webstore, Abaqus tokens

How are Abaqus tokens used?

General token usage. A minimum of 5 tokens are needed *per* job. If you want to run two jobs *at the same time* you would need a minimum of 10 tokens to do so. Each Abaqus license from the WebStore contains 12 tokens and one case.

Licensing and Token Information for the Abaqus Research Edition

SIMULIA products are offered on an annual-lease basis. We use a token-based licensing configuration based upon industry-standard FLEXnet licensing utilities, which enables you to monitor and manage how Abaqus software is used. Each time you execute Abaqus, one or more "tokens" are "checked-out" from your token pool. Once your execution has finished, the tokens are "checked-in" to the pool and made available to someone else to use. The number of tokens used depends upon the product you're using and whether or not you are taking advantage of our parallel processing capabilities. (Our pre/post processor Abaqus/CAE always checks out exactly one CAE token). The number of tokens you'll need to purchase is typically a function of the number of simultaneous Abaqus users you will have, and the degree to which they will use parallel processing.

The table below shows the number of analysis tokens required to execute one analysis according to functionality and the number of processors used.
