VISTAGY Announces a New Generation of FiberSIM Software

VISTAGY : 09 April, 2002  (New Product)
VISTAGY, Inc., today announced the release of Version 4.0 of FiberSIM. The software enables engineers working with computer-aided-design (CAD) systems to design products made of lightweight, high-performance composite materials. A new architecture in Version 4.0 promotes complete digital product definition, a strategy that leading engineering organizations are using to streamline product development cycles and automate manufacturing processes.
VISTAGY, Inc., today announced the release of Version 4.0 of FiberSIM. The software enables engineers working with computer-aided-design (CAD) systems to design products made of lightweight, high-performance composite materials. A new architecture in Version 4.0 promotes complete digital product definition, a strategy that leading engineering organizations are using to streamline product development cycles and automate manufacturing processes.

'We saw the value to our customers of completely overhauling the structure of the software,' says Steve Luby, President and CEO of VISTAGY, Inc. 'FiberSIM 4.0 is a powerful combination of new software technology with production-proven capabilities for composites design and manufacture. Next-generation FiberSIM represents our most important development effort for the composites industry since our inception ten years ago. The new architecture uniquely positions the software for growth, so that we can continue to offer improvements and new functionality that will benefit our customers.'

FiberSIM 4.0 is built on the same architecture as VISTAGY's award-winning EnCapta software, which allows engineers to capture and communicate specialized non-geometric design data. Next-generation FiberSIM offers extensive data integration capabilities based on the open standard of XML, so users can share more detailed data about their composite designs, for example, a list of materials specifications and quantities used, with manufacturing and process engineering, quality assurance, cost modeling, and other systems in the enterprise. Whereas designers must currently use manual methods to exchange this information, electronic data sharing is faster and eliminates data re-entry errors.

FiberSIM 4.0 introduces a new and intuitive user interface with a native look and feel for Microsoft Windows on PCs and Motif on UNIX systems. Data generated in previous versions of FiberSIM is fully compatible with the new release. The new architecture also provides an increased level of integration with the leading CAD systems, reducing the learning curve and increasing ease-of-use.
