Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group
The British Government challenged the Aerospace & Defence Industry to rapidly develop a modern version of the “iron lung” and develop respiratory ventilators that can help save lives around the world. Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group, located in Cambridge, UK, responded to the challenge and led a taskforce to do exactly that.
Due to the rapid nature of development that was needed, time was not on their side. Marshall’s engineers needed to design, analyze, and manufacture all on almostparallel paths, so that a prototype could be delivered as quickly as possible. As such, the design was rapidly changing, sometimes changing daily, and the engineering simulation team needed to keep up with this rapid pace of development. MSC Apex was able to step up to the challenge and deliver rapid analysis results for Marshall’s engineers, allowing them to develop reliable and safe ventilators and deliver them quickly to save lives.
