MSC.Software said that Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani S.p.A
has adopted and will standardize on the company's new SimEnterprise technology across all company sites and their extended supply chain.
With typical development cycles not exceeding 36 months and including a 12 month design phase, Fincantieri and MSC.Software jointly undertook a detailed program of evaluation, aimed at rationalizing the simulation environment and significantly reducing the overall design-to-manufacture process. This included a full process assessment and an extended visit to MSC.Software's Solution Studio and the delivery requirements mapped to the functionality of MSC.Software's new enterprise simulation environments. Under the new agreement, the Fincantieri group will extend their existing simulation capabilities, by introducing a range of next-generation technologies from MSC.Software's SimEnterprise portfolio, MD Nastran, the process management solution, SimManager and the simulation process
automation environment, SimXpert.
