Overview:
In May 2011, MSC Software, In Summa Innovation, and Fokker Aerostructures entered into a close partnership. In the so-called “Fokker Virtual Lab” the three companies started to do serious research with MSC Software products SimXpert and MSC Nastran.

The goal of this first project was twofold:

1) Familiarization and testing of MSC Nastran

2) Familiarization with SimXpert to create a prototype for a process to automate the creation of a QA-sheet, the quality assurance of FEM models.
Challenge:
Investigate new simulation technologies for future use.
Benefits:
  • Created a prototype for a process to automate the creation of a QA-Sheet.
  • Researched new technologies in a joint effort between suppliers and users.
  • Developed the process of how to use SimXpert & MSC Nastran in the complete design process outside the production environment.
  • 50% reduction in report generation
  • Identification and reduction of errors
