Aerospace manufacturers and their OEM's face enormous challenges to design, test and build their products on-time and on-budget. They are tasked with engineering products of the highest technical complexity which also must meet the strictest safety and performance requirements. Quite simply: There is no room for error.

To succeed, aerospace engineers rely heavily on CAE technology to gain accuracy, to save time and to reduce design cycles. Engineers use MSC software throughout the entire design process - from early in the process to predict performance as well as later on, to accurately verify that designs meet strict criteria.

MSC Software has been a trusted partner to the Aerospace industry since its foundation with NASA in the 1960s. When it comes to accurately and reliably simulating large, complex, dynamic systems that are mission critical, our products are the best in the world – period. Our engineering staff also has deep experience in the industry, so we have the know-how to help you apply our technology to your Aerospace products and systems.

Almost every Boeing product that I can think of has been impacted positively by the products of MSC - and the reason is due to the strong partnership between the Boeing engineering team and the MSC engineering team."
-John Tracy, Chief Technology Officer
