MSC.Software, a leading global provider of simulation software and services, announced today that METRA SpA, Italy-based leading provider of aluminum components, acquired SimXpert from MSC.Software and implemented it as a standard tool in its Virtual Product Development (VPD) activities.

SimXpert is used by METRA to provide a turn-key service to its customers that includes design and application engineering as well as manufacturing. Thanks to SimXpert, METRA delivers its customers with weight-optimized extruded components, which enable them to save energy, increase load-carrying capacity and save money.

"We have substantially improved our design capabilities by utilizing SimXpert's complete VPD capabilities in a single environment," said Ernesto Carretta, Technical Applications Director for Metra. "SimXpert's multidisciplinary simulation capability enables our engineers to optimize our products in the context of the customer's design in a small fraction of the time that would be required using conventional single-discipline analysis tools."

"We are happy to welcome METRA in the fast-growing community of SimXpert users," says Kais Bouchiba, Senior Vice President at MSC.Software. "Once again, SimXpert is making a powerful impact on increasing user productivity by leveraging an integrated user environment and common data model across multiple simulation disciplines. SimXpert enables engineers to simulate a large number of design alternatives as part of the product development process."

SimXpert provides a single integrated workspace environment that combines pre-processing, modeling, solving and post-processing for all of the major VPD disciplines including structural, thermal, kinematics, large displacement dynamics and crash simulation. Combining all of these analytical disciplines into a single integrated environment greatly reduces data translation and modeling requirements and enables a single analyst or design engineer to handle the full range of analytical tasks. This approach closes the collaboration gap that normally exists between designers and analysts and makes it possible to integrate simulation within the design process.
