SIMULIA ecosystem unites CAA V5 and ABAQUS alliance programs
Dassault Systèmes (DS) today announced the creation of the SIMULIA Partner Program.
SIMULIA is the Dassault Systèmes open multi-physics platform that supports realistic simulation for a wide range of industries. By significantly reducing the need for the physical testing of products, SIMULIA accelerates innovation and reduces the cost of ownership for realistic simulation, optimizing quality and performance.
The new SIMULIA Partner Program unites simulation partners from the ABAQUS Alliance Program with Dassault Systèmes’ Component Application Architecture (CAA V5) community. This partner ecosystem supports the development of the broadest range of interoperable solutions for virtual testing in a wider range of industries than DS’ traditional markets.
“The SIMULIA Partner Program leverages the synergy of the current CAA V5 and ABAQUS alliance programs, enabling our partners to develop integrated solutions that meet the increasing customer demand for unified simulation,” said Mark Goldstein, CEO of SIMULIA. “Our customers will gain productivity and competitive benefits from leveraging the most comprehensive set of interoperable virtual testing products.”
SIMULIA, launched by Dassault Systèmes simultaneously with the DS acquisition of ABAQUS in October 2005, provides an open platform for enabling the integration of all types of simulation applications. Partners and customers who adopt the open SIMULIA platform will benefit from enhanced collaboration, interoperability, and standards compliancy among leading-edge simulation technologies. SIMULIA is a key component in Dassault Systèmes’ larger strategy for a unified, collaborative 3D environment for design, experimentation, simulation, production & automation.
Dassault Systèmes’ CAA V5 Partners, developers of more than 360 complementary PLM applications, will converge at DEVCON, June 27-28 in Paris, France. DEVCON will be the first venue for SIMULIA partners to meet, share their experiences, and learn more about the future possibilities of the SIMULIA platform.
In 2005 Dassault Systèmes announced SIMULIA, the brand that encompasses all DS simulation solutions, including ABAQUS and CATIA analysis applications. SIMULIA is the open platform for multi-physics simulation that can be used by our partners and customers not only for automotive, aerospace, general machinery, and consumer products, but also by industries facing complex simulation challenges, such as the biomedical, molecular sciences, geophysics, pharmaceuticals and electronics businesses. By building on established technology, respected quality, and superior customer service, SIMULIA makes virtual testing an integral business practice that enables engineers and scientists to improve product performance, eliminate physical prototypes, and drive innovation.
