LMS International announced that PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN has selected LMS Virtual.Lab as the main integrated simulation platform for body, chassis, engine and full vehicle engineering. The contract involves the deployment of LMS Virtual.Lab over several years for a community of more than 500 users, covering critical performance attributes like ride and handling, structural integrity, system dynamics, NVH and acoustics, and delivering a multi attribute assembly workbench. Through previous deployments, Virtual.Lab already had proven its benefits for NVH engineering, engine acoustics simulation and loads prediction for durability and vehicle dynamics
analysis. In addition, current users value LMS Virtual.Lab for its openness to integrate with structural analysis solvers like NASTRAN and ABAQUS, and to easily connect to leading solvers in the areas of crash and safety. Under the new agreement, PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN will deploy LMS Virtual.Lab as part of a strategic program to integrate all the key vehicle simulation tasks into their core vehicle design process.

Alibre announced that the company is working with Popular Mechanics to make precise, interactive 3D models of the magazine's regularly published DIY projects available on its Web site. The new 3D models, along with 2D construction plans and instructions, are available for download at
http://www.popularmechanics.com/3Dworkshop. The magazine has offered standard 2D prints and fabrication instructions for years, but now, via Alibre 3D, readers will also be able to spin the models around, zoom in on details, and animate the assembly to see all the component parts dynamically in real-time with photorealistic textures. The combined 3D and 2D projects are available in the Adobe PDF format and can be viewed and manipulated with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. In addition, a
new feature of the Adobe PDF format makes it possible to add mark-ups and comments, perform measurements, and section or slice a 3D model.

Autodesk announced that it ranked second among the top ten companies in the computer software industry on FORTUNE's 2007 list of "America's Most Admired Companies." The list and related stories appeared in the March 19 issue of FORTUNE magazine and are currently available online at
www.fortune.com. Other companies in the top ten within the computer software industry include Intuit, Adobe, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Symantec, SAP and Oracle. The Most Admired list is a definitive report card on corporate reputations. FORTUNE's survey partners at Hay Group started with the FORTUNE 1,000 -- the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue -- and the top foreign ones operating in the United States. Hay sorted them by industry and selected the ten largest in each. To create the 63 industry lists,
Hay asked executives, directors and analysts to rate companies in their own industry on eight criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. A company's score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
