MSC Software Corporation ("MSC Software"), one of the leading providers of computer-aided engineering (CAE) solutions for manufacturers, has licensed Siemens’ D-Cubed™ software components to be used in a significant new MSC Software solution. MSC Software selected the D-Cubed 2D DCM (Dimensional Constraint Manager) and the D-Cubed 3D DCM from Siemens’; product lifecycle management (PLM) software business unit to provide the geometric constraint solving capability that is fundamental to many modern computer-aided design, manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and CAE software applications. This decision, by one of the most recognized software brands throughout the global manufacturing community, is considered a significant milestone in Siemens’; continuing expansion as a global supplier of open software solutions.
"We are working on fundamentally redefining how CAE will be done going forward and we intend for D-Cubed software components to be part of this important effort,” said Ken Welch, Vice President Strategy & Product Management, MSC Software. “We found the D-Cubed components provided exceptional functionality, performance and reliability. Siemens has proven itself a reliable provider of these core technologies, so we have complete confidence they will meet the high quality standards we have established with our global customer base.”;
“We are very pleased that MSC Software has selected our D-Cubed geometric constraint solvers,” said Paul Sicking, senior vice president, Chief Technology Office, Siemens PLM Software. “This represents a major milestone in the usage of D-Cubed components for the CAE market as well as expansion of many successful years of technology cross-licensing between MSC Software and Siemens PLM Software.”
