Aras has set up an expanded partnership with MSC Software, an Aras ISV Certified partner since 2010. By offering connectors to the MSC Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) solver and Adams, MSC Software’s tool for advanced rigid and flexible multibody dynamics simulation, Aras extends its vision for Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) across the enterprise.
MSC Software offers multidisciplinary structural analysis software used by engineers to perform static, dynamic, and thermal analysis across the linear and nonlinear domains, complemented with automated structural optimization and embedded fatigue analysis technologies. Adams, a multibody dynamic simulation software application, helps engineers study the dynamics of moving parts, and how loads and forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems.
Connectors with MSC solvers and other related tools enable users of Aras SPDM to capture simulation best-practices and scale them to more teams throughout the enterprise. Aras SPDM increases the use of multi-physics, multi-fidelity simulation across the product lifecycle to help reduce physical testing, improve requirements verification, and accelerate design space exploration.
“MSC Software is pleased to reinforce our partnership with Aras,” says John Janevic, chief operating officer of MSC Software. “Connectors for Aras SPDM enable our mutual customers to more efficiently use their software tools and achieve improved ROI.”
“MSC’s advanced, multi-fidelity simulation capabilities are widely used and trusted to improve the design and development of complex products across multiple industries,” says Malcolm Panthaki, VP of Analysis Solutions at Aras. “With these Connectors, Aras customers can seamlessly incorporate the MSC tools into their simulation processes, so structural analysis data can become an integrated part of the enterprise Digital Thread, available to the global product organization in a timely manner for decision-making.”
