MSC Software Corporation is a leading global provider of integrated enterprise simulation solutions that enable radical improvement in the time and costs associated with designing and testing manufactured products.
Delivered over the fully integrated and extendable SimEnterprise platform, the company's integrated virtual product development tools use detailed digital product models to simulate and verify every aspect of product performance. This empowers manufacturers to make and track critical design decisions and communicate and coordinate product development with all points of the enterprise, driving product innovation and quality to new and competitively sustainable levels.
SimManager is an enterprise simulation data and process management solution that enables companies to apply game-changing improvements to the product development process. It enables companies to capture, store and manage such intellectual property as product fit, function and performance data. It serves as reusable knowledge base of design iterations, allowing designers to continually leverage and build upon previous development strategies. Key capabilities include:
MSC has embedded and optimized IBM technology as part of their SimManager Enterprise offering, integrating services oriented architecture (SOA) with DB2, WebSphere and Tivoli to meet the growing demand for enterprise-based solutions allowing access to and sharing of simulations across the extended value chain, greatly reducing product development cycle times. IBM's global services team offers a wide range of consulting and services to support the planning and implementation of these enterprise solutions. MSC's applications are also pre-configured and tested on IBM eServer platforms for ease of installation, rapid scalability and support for Service Oriented Architecture. Partnering with IBM also enables MSC to deliver their MD Nastran in an on-demand environment.
