SIMULIA to Announce New Capabilities Powered by 3DExperience Platform, Including New Online Learning Community, Next Generation Solutions for Multiphysics, Design Exploration, and SLM

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 14, 2012Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3D Experience Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Jim O’Sullivan, vice president of Technip, and Anthony B. Ferguson, lead engineering specialist of 3M, will keynote the 25th international SIMULIA Community Conference (SCC) taking place May 15-17 in Providence, Rhode Island. Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes, will take the stage to discuss the newly revealed 3DExperience Platform, which transforms innovation by connecting designers, engineers, marketing, and consumers in a new “social enterprise.”

The keynote speakers will be joined by more than 85 thought-leading presenters from a wide range of international manufacturing and research organizations, including Caterpillar, General Motors, Tetra Pak, Goodrich, Halliburton, Hyundai, Medtronic, and NASA, among others. Multiple industry sessions will set the stage for in-depth discussions focused on solving real-world engineering challenges through the use of SIMULIA’s scalable and robust solutions for unified finite element analysis, multiphysics simulation, design exploration, and simulation lifecycle management.

“Our customers are using realistic simulation as a strategic asset to make better products, improve quality of life, and build a more sustainable society,” said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “We are committed to lead and invest in research and development of advanced realistic simulation technology, a core asset in our 3DExperience Platform. The experts in the SIMULIA user community will continue to be at the cutting edge of exploration, discovery, and innovation, providing a competitive advantage to their organizations.”

SCC attendees will have the opportunity to experience the newly launched SIMULIA Learning Community, which provides online tutorials, technical content, and a question-and-answer area to enable the global community of users to share their expertise and learn how to leverage the latest features and enhancements available in the SIMULIA portfolio. Highlights of the SCC will be posted on the SIMULIA Learning Community during and after the event.

“The integration of SIMULIA’s proven, robust realistic simulation technology on the 3DExperience Platform is truly a catalyst for innovation,” said Scott Berkey, CEO, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes. “Researchers, designers, and simulation specialists are able to accelerate collaboration by using the same models and simulation technology to virtually experience the real-world performance of their products. By connecting users in the SIMULIA Learning Community and creating a social dynamic within their ecosystem, we will democratize and drive innovation.”

Additionally, experts from SIMULIA will provide demonstrations of the newest products and enhancements to the solutions portfolio, including DesignSight, which provides out-of-the-box capabilities to designers for performing rapid ‘what-if’ design studies; ExSight, a configurable simulation environment for expert users to create and deploy proven simulation methods; Abaqus for linear, nonlinear, and advanced multiphysics simulation; Isight for simulation automation and design exploration; and Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM) for capturing and deploying approved simulation workflows, managing simulation and test data, collaborating on simulation results, and securing simulation IP.

Complementary solutions developed by SIMULIA Alliance Partners will be on display at the SCC, including AMD, Anybody Technology A/S, AVL List GmbH, BETA CAE Systems SA, Bodie Technology, Inc., CAPVIDIA, CD-adapco, DatapointLabs, e-Xstream engineering SA, Firehole Composites, Fraunhofer Institute SCAI, GRM Consulting Ltd., HBM-nCode, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, JSOL Corporation, Materialise, Northwest Numerics & Modeling, Inc., NVIDIA, Platform Computing, Quest Integrity Group, Safe Technology, SGI, and Software Cradle Co., Ltd.
