MSC.Software introduces CAD-embedded SimDesigner enterprise

NAFEMS : 24 January, 2007  (New Product)
MSC.Software today announced SimDesigner Enterprise, combining the most extensive CAD-embedded multidiscipline simulation solutions with collaboration available for CATIA V5 users. SimDesigner Enterprise accelerates speed to market and cuts engineering costs by providing design engineers with easier access to a wide-ranging set of integrated simulation workbenches and simulation data management.
'By providing SimDesigner Enterprise for design engineers across the CATIA V5 installed base, customers will benefit with lower costs and more innovative products, and MSC will grow its market opportunity,' said William J. Weyand, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, MSC.Software Corporation. 'Additionally, simulation specialists can now focus on more complex simulation problems and get to market faster through accelerated design innovation. This provides our enterprise customers with better utilization of their intellectual property.'

'We are very pleased that our partnership has been taken to the next level with the SimDesigner Enterprise CATIA V5 integration. This combination will allow for powerful early design validation using their well established and industry accepted solver solutions,' said Philippe Forestier executive vice president alliances, marketing & communications, Dassault Systèmes.

Included in the SimDesigner Enterprise bundle are Enterprise Gateways that improve design-CAE interoperability by enabling the output of run-ready simulation decks to MSC Nastran, Marc and LS-Dyna, and subsequently allow results to be viewed inside SimDesigner Enterprise.

'MSC's multidiscipline SimDesigner Enterprise and gateways to its MD Nastran and Marc solutions provides an analysis environment for design engineers in companies using CATIA. This collaborative solution set provides companies a platform to enable them to be more innovative and improve their productivity,' said Ed Miller, president, CIMdata.

'A substantial amount of time and money was saved by determining early on the weak areas in the initial design which would not meet spec,' said Stephen Doncov, CAE specialist, ASC.

'SimDesigner Enterprise provides design engineers with scaleable, easy to learn simulation tools inside the CAD environment to increase first pass simulations, empower more what-if scenarios to drive innovation and identify design flaws earlier to cut costs,' said Glenn Wienkoop, president and chief operating officer, MSC.Software Corporation. 'This enables model reuse and data interoperability between design and analysis, allowing CAE specialists to focus on larger, more complicated analysis problems.'

Through its all-in-one integrated workbenches, SimDesigner Enterprise creates an easy-to-learn, designer friendly multidiscipline simulation experience while simultaneously enabling direct access to such industry leading and powerful embedded solvers from MSC as MD Nastran, Marc and Adams. Workbenches include structural, motion, nonlinear, thermal and crash.
