MSC Launches New SimManager Business Unit to Expand on Its Leadership in Simulation Data and Process Management

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - MSC.Software, a leading global provider of simulation software and services, announces the formation of a new global business unit to focus and expand on its recognized leadership position in Simulation Data and Process Management (SDPM).

"MSC is now well positioned to continue its lead in the rapidly growing SDPM market and to leverage the extensive, industry leading production success of SimManager," said Albrecht Pfaff, Vice President SimManager Business Unit, MSC.Software. "We are very pleased to be recognized as the thought leader in Simulation Data and Process Management by the recent assessment performed by the PLM business analyst group, Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA).

MSC was also recognized by CPDA as having "the largest number of sites using SDPM in production on the market. Large aerospace and automotive companies rely on MSC.Software SDPM tools for supporting a tremendous increase in the volume of simulation to be performed with tangible and measurable benefits."

"We have successfully deployed SimManager in the High-Lift System test department at Airbus Bremen and benefit from a tight connection between Physical Test and Virtual Test correlation. SimManager will help us to tremendously improve the testing procedure of the new A350 aircraft -- we expect to reduce lead-time and cost for system certification while increasing aircraft maturity," explained Thomas Krüger, project leader for Virtual Testing at Airbus.
