Thursday, December 10th, 2009 - Dassault Systemes
Singapore, Dec 9, 2009 - Dassault Systemes (DS), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the availability of Isight 4.0, its market-leading simulation process automation and design optimization solution from SIMULIA.

Isight provides engineers with an open system for integrating design and simulation models, created with various CAD, CAE and other software applications, together into a simulation process workflow. Isight users can use the workflows to run hundreds or thousands of simulations without manual intervention. Using optimization methods such as Design of Experiments, Approximations, and Design for Six Sigma, engineers are able to explore the complete design space to identify optimal performance parameters.

Isight 4.0 provides an Abaqus Unified FEA application component as part of the base Gateway package, greatly enhancing the use of the robust FEA technology from SIMULIA within Isight process workflows. Enhanced support for scripting has been added for customers and partners who use the Isight component software development kit to develop their own custom components. Also, the Dassault Systemes software developer community is now extended to support third-party simulation component development for Isight with APIs, tools to improve the process of developing robust third-party components that will provide significant efficiency gains to Isight users.

"The open, component-based technology in Isight simplifies the integration of CAD and CAE applications into a simulation workflow," stated Steve Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systemes. "By leveraging the new features and enhancements in Isight 4.0, our customers will achieve significant efficiency improvements in capturing and automating their simulation workflows. This, in turn, will allow them to dramatically increase the number of simulations they can perform, accelerating their ability to optimize their product's performance earlier in the development cycle."

"Dassault Systemes' partner program provides our development team with access to software APIs and technical support resources that help us accelerate the development of new components for Isight," stated Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, VP Product Management, CD-adapco. "Integrating STAR-CCM+ into Isight workflows will enhance our customers' ability to perform multidisciplinary design optimization."
