November 4, 2011 - Ann Arbor, Michigan, For Immediate Release — CIMdata, Inc., the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market research and management consulting firm, announces the formation of its newest business practice, focused on the growing importance of engineering simulation and analysis applied over the complete product lifecycle.
Peter Bilello, President of CIMdata, announced that Dr. Keith Meintjes (previously with Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA) which was acquired by CIMdata in May 2011) will lead the creation and delivery of CIMdata’s offerings for end users and solution suppliers as its Simulation & Analysis Practice Manager. “Many companies have leveraged simulation technologies to gain a strategic advantage in increasingly more competitive markets,” stated Dr. Meintjes, “while other companies are struggling to develop a vision for its adoption and to make a business case to invest.” According to CIMdata market research announced earlier this year, worldwide investments in simulation and analysis exceeded US$2.4 billion in 2010, and are growing at an estimated five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ten percent.
