DCS Announces Partnership with SIMULIA

Dimensional Control Systems Inc. (DCS) announces a Software Development Partnership Agreement with SIMULIA Interoperability of 3DCS tolerance simulation software with Abaqus software Troy, Michigan U.S.A, February 2, 2009 – Dimensional Control Systems Incorporated (DCS) announced today the signing of a software development partnership agreement with SIMULIA, the Dassault Systèmes brand for realistic simulation. The purpose of this agreement is to allow for the interoperability between DCS’s 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler (CM) Software solution and Abaqus finite element analysis (FEA) software from SIMULIA. 3DCS FEA CM is an add-on module to the 3DCS tolerance simulation software, including 3DCS for CATIA V5 and 3DCS SA (Multi-CAD).The collaboration with SIMULIA builds upon the existing relationship between DCS and Dassault Systèmes to further provide customers within the Design and Manufacturing Industries, such as automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and high-tech, with unmatched capabilities for achieving dimensional integrity and product quality for non-rigid, “compliant” assemblies. Traditional variation analysis methods are considered to be "rigid-body" or "non-compliant" modeling; meaning that every part within the assembly does not flex or would not be distorted through an assembly process such as welding, clamping or unclamping of an assembly fixture. While this might be the case with a few machined components, most commodities/materials like sheet metal, plastics, aluminum, etc. can be heavily influenced through the manufacturing processes (both fabrication and assembly), thus changing the dimensional integrity or shape of the part/assembly. Abaqus FEA software is used to determine the stresses and displacements in mechanical objects and systems, and is the basis for this leading edge advancement in predictive analysis. 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler utilizes FEA methods to accurately simulate variation of compliant parts and assemblies within the 3D Variation Analysis model. "Expanding our relationship with Dassault Systèmes to access simulation capabilities from SIMULIA provides significant benefits to users of both 3DCS and Abaqus," says Robert Kaphengst, CEO and President of Dimensional Control Systems. "Setting up a 3DCS work flow sequence with Abaqus for incorporating the effects of FEA analysis data within a 3DCS tolerance model becomes very straightforward. It ensures that engineers will spend less time in administration of various files between the two products. Variation Analysts can now more efficiently and accurately analyze the affects of variation within non-rigid assemblies.” "The partnership with DCS is part of our ongoing strategy to expand the Dassault Systèmes partner ecosystem to include best-in-class simulation solutions for a comprehensive range of applications,” commented Tom Battisti, Director Alliances, SIMULIA. "With this partnership and the product plan for 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler in place, our joint customers can look forward to tighter integration between 3DCS and Abaqus."
