MSC Software Recognized as One of "The Ten Original Software Companies"

SANTA ANA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 10, 2011 -- MSC Software Corporation, the leader in multidiscipline simulation solutions that accelerate product innovation, today announced its recently recognized achievement in an article published by MaximumPC, as one of "The 10 Original Software Companies" along with other great software technology innovators like IBM, Computer Sciences Corporation, Apple, and Microsoft.,0

The article points out that software, and for that matter, computers were with us long before the desktop PCs that so radically changed everything. In 1965, MSC Software won the contract through a NASA-sponsored project to develop NASTRAN, which was estimated to have returned $701 million in cost savings from 1971 to 1984. NASTRAN was inducted into the U.S. Space Foundation's Space Technology Hall of Fame in 1988, as one of the first technologies to receive this prestigious honor.

Additionally, in a NASA Heritage of Creativity reference, it was stated that NASTRAN contributed $10 billion+ value in "manned space flight contributions to humanity." See page 10 in the following link

Since the company's announcement of MSC Nastran in 1971; its proprietary version of NASTRAN, MSC Software has been dedicated to helping science, technology, and commercial manufacturing industries like aerospace and automotive, excel in engineering and computer modeling and analysis. Today, the company continues progressive technology development efforts aimed at delivering certainty by expanding the horizon of engineering simulation, so companies can successfully simulate functional performance of increasingly complex engineering systems.

"It is both an honor and humbling experience for all of our employees that MSC was recognized as one of the top 10 original software companies in the world," said Dominic Gallello, President and CEO of MSC Software. "We are proud of our heritage as a software company that pioneered and contributed to the development of engineering simulation. The team at MSC is excited about continuing to drive the future of engineering simulation so our customers can deliver products that perform better, are more reliable, safer and greener."

MSC Software Corporation will celebrate its 50th anniversary in February 2013.
