BMW and MSC.Software plan joint portal development
BMW Group and MSC.Software have agreed to jointly develop a CAE Automotive Portal to replace the BMW “CAE-Bench” simulation data management solution. SimManager Automotive Portal will be included as an additional vertical solution in MSC.Software’s product portfolio during 2011.
The automotive portal is based on SimManager, a solution for simulation process and data management. Automation, traceability, and standardized simulation information storage are outstanding benefits of the system. Automotive specific functionality preconfigured in the Automotive Portal includes crash simulation, pedestrian protection, acoustics and structural durability. An expansion to include additional CAE disciplines is planned following the initial deployment. Consistency will be maintained with the Product Lifecycle Management system introduced by BMW.
“A solution for simulation data management and process automation preconfigured to automotive requirements as part of SimManager represents a strategic alignment with important user requirements at BMW and other automotive manufacturers globally,” says Kais Bouchiba, senior vice president, MSC.Software.
