NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(July 20th, 2016) - MSC Software Corporation, today announced a dynamic partnership with the Campania Region Technological Aerospace District to launch of the SIMULAB Project (Simulation Laboratory for the Development of Aeronautical Programs). MSC will join efforts with DAC (Campania Aerospace Cluster), Formit, Sixtema, and CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Centre) to facilitate the development of companies involved in the Italian Aerospace industry.

SIMULAB is a project of cooperative technological transfer for high-potential innovative companies. The program's purpose is to drive innovation, reduce costs and improve the quality of new products. The platform will boost synergy between DAC companies collaborating on design and engineering projects by providing them with simulation technologies to anticipate potential problems from the earliest stages of design.

SIMULAB will function as:

  • A Virtual Laboratory to disseminate the methodologies and knowledge in various aspects of aviation engineering (best practices of standardized methods and procedures, supporting technologies, knowledge and experience);
  • An environment for the management of projects and related data;
  • An e-learning platform to organize the technical staff training while minimizing costs and interference with other work activities;
  • A computerized tool that integrates the management aspects with the operational ones to conduct a program of research/development (i.e. integration of engineering analysis tasks in project management and planning, and then reporting and checking their outcome in the management system).

Through the SIMULAB platform, MSC Software will deliver SimManager to manage the complete simulation data pedigree and process audit trail; MSC Apex, its next generation simulation environment that gives engineers up to 10X speed up in modeling and analysis tasks; and MSC Nastran, its leading structural analysis solution relied upon by engineers for multidisciplinary analysis of complex aerospace systems.  MSC Apex was chosen because of its ease of use and innovative modeling technology that allows users to quickly create Finite Element Model (FEM) models. This will make it easier for aerospace engineers participating in the program to learn and run simulations faster and at less cost.
