Simulation Data & Process Management with SimManager (EX)
Traditional organizational approaches and tools no longer support the need in design/simulation to drive down product development cycle times. Companies face a major cultural change in capturing and leveraging the knowledge of the experts of each discipline. Moreover, a design and simulation framework must host all simulation data, processes, and tools, and maintain a tight integration with design in terms of both data and processes. SimManager from MSC Software scores with a major step forward in extending the vision for a Design/Simulation framework. Discussions with several customers involved with implementing the framework suggest that MSC Software has progressed further and faster with the framework than most would expect, given the relatively recent series of announcements on the offerings.
