Simulate More Productively with SimManager R3
SimManager R3 helps engineering and manufacturing companies to simulate more collaboratively and more productively by managing all of their simulation content, methods, and processes. These capabilities will help end-users to spend less time looking for the information they need to do their jobs, automate time-consuming and repetitive tasks, and ultimately get more consistent and reliable results. Engineering organizations are able evaluate more design alternatives without increasing time or resource requirements, leading to innovative product designs and lasting competitive advantage.
With the release of SimManager R3, MSC Software introduces two product configurations designed to scale from engineering workgroups to full extended product development enterprises.
Introducing SimManager Workgroup Edition R3
SimManager Workgroup Edition requires no configuration or customization, and can be deployed in matter of hours. It's also simple to use and requires no changes to your CAE tools, methods, or processes.
SimManager Workgroup Edition immediately improves operational productivity by enabling project teams to collaborate more effectively and eliminate time wasted searching for the information and data they need to do their jobs. Macros, scripts, session files and other "best practice methods" can be deployed consistently throughout your teams, current models and results can be shared in real-time, and a documented audit trail for all simulation content is created and maintained by SimManager Workgroup Edition. And, as your simulation requirements grow, you can easily upgrade to SimManager Enterprise Edition to add configurable process management and automation.
Announcing SimManager Enterprise Edition R3
SimManager Enterprise R3 improves upon the world's only proven and scalable solution for managing and automating simulation with improved performance and scalability, a new and improved user experience, and a new authoring environment for building, managing, and automating simulation processes. Product manufacturers will benefit from these capabilities with more rapidly deployed enterprise simulation management systems, increased ease-of-use and efficiency for users, and solutions that can support thousands of users running hundreds of simulations per day across globally distributed working environments. SimManager Enterprise also provides a seamless upgrade path for users ready to add process management and automation capabilities to their SimManager Workgroup implementations.
New Process Builder
Simulation Enabling the Engineering Business
Being able to make game changing innovations requires experimenting with more design possibilities without increasing cost, time and resources. Simulation has long promised a way to replace slow and expensive physical prototypes and tests with virtual equivalents that can be modified easily, tested fast, and provide more product performance insight. Isolation of simulation information to specialists, lack of process quality and consistency, and excess time spent on low value, repetitive tasks in modeling and analysis has up to now kept the promise from being fulfilled. SimManager enables customers to maximize the power of their simulation knowledge and leverage it to simulate more - more productively, more efficiently, and more reliably.
Improved Simulation Quality
Leveraged CAE Investments
Rapid Business Results
Industry's Only Proven Solution for Open, Scalable Simulation
Open PLM Integration
An End-to-End Solution for Enterprise Simulation Data Management
Simulation Content and Process Management
The key to innovating more and using simulation to strategic advantage is through managed content and processes. SimManager's content management solution enables companies to gain control over all simulation related content including simulation methods and processes, inputs to these processes, outputs from these processes, as well as the information (meta-data) that describes these processes and resources.
