MSC.Software and PROSTEP AG Announce Enterprise Access to Simulation Information

Enterprise Simulation Leader to Introduce SimManager Enterprise Connect(TM) Powered by PROSTEP OpenPDM

SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MSC.Software (NASDAQ: MSCS), the leading global provider of enterprise simulation solutions including simulation software and services, today announced that the company has extended their partnership with PROSTEP, the leading PLM product data integration specialist, to offer SimManager Enterprise Connect. This new product will allow users to connect MSC SimManager to other enterprise PLM-solutions (including Enovia, TeamCenter, Windchill, MatrixOne, SAP), and Requirements Management (including Telelogic Doors).

"By extending our existing relationship with PROSTEP, we are now able to further enhance our enablement of enterprise wide access to simulation information, facilitating collaboration between PLM, requirements, design and simulation, enabling up front engineering and accelerating innovation efforts," said Frank Kovacs, vice president, strategic business development, MSC.Software. "This relationship creates the industry's first example of two SOA certified technologies interoperating to expose simulation information throughout the enterprise. We are committed to continuing to work with PROSTEP AG to advance worldwide interaction and accelerate design development."

SimManager Enterprise, one of the three platforms that comprise SimEnterprise, provides global product manufacturers with the ability to leverage their engineering data and processes throughout the enterprise to speed design and development. MSC.Software will use the SimManager Enterprise Connect powered by PROSTEP OpenPDM to integrate SimManager Enterprise with leading PDM systems to synchronize CAD design with CAE analysis, enhancing collaboration and accelerating product development. SimManager Enterprise Connect will also integrate simulation with leading requirements management systems including Telelogic Doors to track product performance against up-to-date targets and requirements. This link will help systems engineers and program managers to monitor risk and effectively deploy resources to manage schedule and performance risk.

"As companies deal with a growing network of partners and suppliers around the globe, they face the challenge of integrating product lifecycle management applications into other critical enterprise systems and business processes. With this new alliance, MSC.Software and ProStep support the vision of deploying software applications that use a service-oriented architecture (SOA) to help companies become more agile," stated Edward Bryan, director, IBM Software Sector Industry Solutions."
