    VISTAGY Viewpoint Newsletter                                     
        A Quarterly Newsletter from VISTAGY, Inc.
September 2008     

In this edition of VISTAGY Viewpoint we focus on the growing need for specialized engineering tools and the challenges of designing composite parts and airframe assemblies.   In Ask the Expert, VISTAGY Founder, President and CEO Steve Luby talks about the value of specialized engineering environments in an exclusive interview with MCADCafé. In Trends in Engineering, we discuss the importance of taking a holistic view of the composite airframe development process.

Then we’re off to the races in our Featured Customer section with Carbo Tech Composites, an Austrian composites engineering firm that used FiberSIM to help develop a complex Formula One chassis. And our Product Tip explains how customizable FiberSIM Actions help engineers adjust to the ever-changing world of composite design and manufacturing.

We hope this issue gets you thinking about ways to improve your composite engineering and airframe assembly processes, and we encourage you to Email Contact with potential story topics and suggestions. Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,
