MSC Software Corporation, today announced a dynamic partnership with the Campania Region Technological Aerospace District to launch of the SIMULAB Project (Simulation Laboratory for the Development of Aeronautical Programs). MSC will join efforts with DAC (Campania Aerospace Cluster), Formit, Sixtema, and CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Centre) to facilitate the development of companies involved in the Italian Aerospace industry.
SIMULAB is a project of cooperative technological transfer for high-potential innovative companies. The program’s purpose is to drive innovation, reduce costs and improve the quality of new products. The platform will boost synergy between DAC companies collaborating on design and engineering projects by providing them with simulation technologies to anticipate potential problems from the earliest stages of design.
SIMULAB will function as:
Through the SIMULAB platform, MSC Software will deliver SimManager to manage the complete simulation data pedigree and process audit trail; MSC Apex, its next generation simulation environment that gives engineers up to 10X speed up in modeling and analysis tasks; and MSC Nastran, its leading structural analysis solution relied upon by engineers for multidisciplinary analysis of complex aerospace systems. MSC Apex was chosen because of its ease of use and innovative modeling technology that allows users to quickly create Finite Element Model (FEM) models. This will make it easier for aerospace engineers participating in the program to learn and run simulations faster and at less cost.
