MSC.Software's SimManager Enterprise Leverages Simulation Information And Processes

Optimized by Embedded IBM Technology, Solution Delivers Simulation Management Environment Utilizing DB2 Websphere and Tivoli, to Extend Engineering Information Throughout the Enterprise

SANTA ANA, Calif., July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MSC.Software Corp. (OTC: MNSC), the leading global provider of enterprise simulation solutions including simulation software and services, today announced SimManager Enterprise as the second solution included under their pioneering simulation software platform, SimEnterprise. SimManager Enterprise is an enterprise-level software product that allows global businesses to leverage their engineering processes throughout the enterprise to greatly speed design and development. Providing functionality that allows organizations to efficiently create, manage and re-use simulation data, SimManager Enterprise enables companies to control, share and extend engineering data and the processes related to their products both internally and externally into the supply chain.

Using SimManager Enterprise, companies can easily maximize their most critical intellectual property, including simulation processes, by capturing knowledge siloed throughout the enterprise, analyzing and automating processes, and making it available throughout the supply chain.

Also announced today is a new strategic alliance between IBM and MSC. As a result of this alliance, MSC will OEM, embed and optimize IBM technology, including DB2, Websphere and Tivoli, as a part of SimManager Enterprise, pre- configuring and testing these technologies for ease of installation, rapid scalability and aligning smoothly with enterprise architecture strategies such as the adoption of an enterprise Service Oriented Architecture. The combination of IBM's technology, services and integration expertise along with SimManager Enterprise's capabilities provides a complete solution stack for the management of simulation processes and product performance data, ensuring scalability for global deployments.

"MSC.Software has taken the lead with an enterprise offering incorporating a comprehensive design/simulation framework that brings analysts into the mainstream of product development upfront in the process where the payoff is the most dramatic," said Donald H. Brown, chairman, Collaborative Product Development Associates, LLC. "As companies seek to streamline operations and processes throughout the supply chain, SimManager Enterprise provides organizations deep advantages that arise from the creation, capture, control and automation of engineering data in the supply chain."

SimManager Enterprise is a component of SimEnterprise, an enterprise simulation software platform that revolutionizes the way engineering teams can access and work with data, sharing simulation information across the extended enterprise. With SimEnterprise, product development stakeholders, regardless of application preference or global location can easily collaborate and manage simulation and simulation-based design information to accelerate product development in a highly cost-efficient manner.

Using a combination of simulation data management, process management and pedigree capture, SimManager Enterprise allows organizations to harness the sea of data produced in product development and save time and costs with easy management and integration of engineering data within the IT infrastructure. Shipped out-of-the-box from day one, the adaptable and configurable SimManager Enterprise can be used immediately to leverage intellectual property for business advantage.

    SimManager Enterprise functionality includes:

    --  Simulation Data Management - allows companies to bring existing
        simulation data under control, regardless of development platform or
        global location.  SimManager Enterprise delivers the ability to find
        and re-use data, by name, pedigree or context, for additional testing
        and collaborative use.  Using SimManager Enterprise, companies can
        easily publish data for long-term use, providing an efficient method
        for storage, search and retrieval.

    --  Simulation Process Management - SimManager Enterprise delivers the
        ability to capture simulation processes surrounding, and associated
        with, engineering analysis, including a deep understanding and
        automation of the process from beginning to end.  Using SimManager
        Enterprise, companies can take a best-practices approach to simulation
        process management, enabling variant simulations, re-use and re-
        automation decisions based on pedigree and context of processes for
        pedigree capture and business advantage.

    --  Extended Enterprise Access - With its thin-client architecture,
        SimManager Enterprise enables enterprise simulation data and processes
        to be easily shared outside of engineering departments with other
        constituencies within organizations or throughout the supply chain to
        vendors or other suppliers throughout the enterprise.  Using a highly
        flexible approach, SimManager Enterprise delivers value by moving data
        outside of the organization, allowing external companies to work with
        legacy data and processes to enable collaboration and highly efficient
        operations.

In addition, SimManager Enterprise provides an open-systems approach to integration, allowing easy deployment with other enterprise products including product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions and enterprise resource planning (ERP).

"By combining SimManager Enterprise with IBM DB2, WebSphere Application Server and Tivoli Event Monitoring, manufacturing customers can now implement a pre-integrated, pre-tested solution that can be up and running in days, not weeks or months," said Tony Rummans, VP Business Development for IBM Software Group. "In addition, customers can quickly and easily integrate the new solution into their current IT infrastructure thanks to our support for open standards and proven scalability including industry leading load balancing and compression technologies."

"The power that SimManager Enterprise brings to organizations is revolutionary, allowing business to put simulation data under control and move it outside engineering where companies can work hand-in-hand with their supply chain," said Glenn Wienkoop, president and chief operating officer, MSC.Software. "SimManager Enterprise enables a business to work in a different way, allowing companies to re-use, re-automate and leverage the captured 'know-how' in the enterprise to work faster, smarter and more cost- effectively."
