Launching a New Era ofSmart Engineering Simulation
A full generation ahead of other solutions, ANSYS 12.0 takes productdesign and development to the next level.
By Jim Cashman, President and CEO, ANSYS, Inc.
The current economic climate has completely changedthe way most companies view engineering simulation.Leveraging the power of virtual prototyping to compress theproduct development process and drive down costs is nolonger a choice — it’s a requirement for survival in anincreasingly competitive environment.In nearly every industry, driving product developmentthrough engineering simulation technology has become akey strategy to develop more innovative products, reducedevelopment and manufacturing costs, and accelerate timeto market.
Backed by the unmatched power of ANSYS 12.0software, progressive companies are taking engineeringsimulation a step beyond. They have already realizedthe enormous strategic benefits of virtual prototyping — andare now seeking more from their investments in simulation. ANSYS 12.0 enables these forward-looking companiesto maximize the efficiency of their simulation processes, toincrease the accuracy of their virtual prototypes, and tocapture and reuse their simulation processes and data. This
next level of performance signals a new era of SmartEngineering Simulation, in which product innovations can berealized more rapidly, and more cost effectively, thanever before.
There is no company better qualified to launch this newera. ANSYS has led the engineering simulation industryfor nearly 40 years, revolutionizing the field of engineeringsimulation in much the same way that the internet and desktoppublishing have revolutionized the broadband distributionof information. As a direct consequence of a long-standingcommitment to simulation, ANSYS is the only companyoffering advanced simulation technologies that span all keyengineering disciplines — and bringing them together in anintegrated and flexible software platform designed specificallyto support Simulation Driven Product Development.Over the years ANSYS has made significant technologyinvestments, acquisitions and partnership to ensure continuingleadership. We recognize that every technology breakthroughor market accomplishment has only been a stepping stone toour vision. Reflecting these investments — as well as theacquired wisdom of four decades in this industry — ANSYS12.0 represents the fullest expression of our leadership posi-tion. It is the most comprehensive engineering simulationsolution available today.
While the following pages offer a wealth of detail, I’d like tofocus on the high-level benefits that our customers will realizeas they leverage the full depth and breadth of ANSYS 12.0 tomake product development smarter, better, faster and morecollaborative than they ever thought possible.
Smart Technologies = Smart Simulation
At ANSYS, we have applied our long history of tech-nology leadership to create the world’s smartest solution forengineering simulation — more automated, repeatable,
