Design Simulation Technologies Embeds SHERPA in SimWise 4D

SimWise 4D Excavator East Lansing, MI (December 6, 2012) – Design Simulation Technologies (DST), the developer of SimWise 4D, announced today that they have chosen the SHERPA optimization engine from Red Cedar Technology to embed in their structural mechanics and dynamics simulation software to provide comprehensive design space exploration capabilities.

Alan Wegienka, CEO of DST, stated “For a designer-oriented tool like SimWise 4D, it is extremely important that we focus on providing significant design insight and decision support to our users. After investigating possible ways to accomplish this goal, it became clear that SHERPA was the best choice.”

SimWise 4D was born when DST acquired a license from MSC Software Corporation to the VisualNastran 4D (vN4D) product. The optimization capabilities are planned for incorporation in version 9.0 of SimWise 4D scheduled for Q1 2013.

Scania selects HEEDS MDO for Vehicle Dynamics Optimization

ScaniaGothenburg, Sweden (October 22, 2012) – Scania, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks, buses, and engines selected HEEDS MDO as its solution for vehicle dynamics optimization. “HEEDS helps us solve problems faster, better, and easier than we were able to do alone,” says Anders Ahlström, Senior Analyst at Scania. “This software surpasses anything on the market in its ability to help us drive innovation.”

The incorporation of HEEDS into the engineering processes at Scania was made possible through the support of CAE Value AB, the European-wide distributor of Red Cedar Technology’s products. CAE Value engineers assisted Scania in parameterizing Scania’s vehicle dynamic simulation models and incorporating HEEDS to tune these models and discover designs that optimize handling and durability performance.

Red Cedar Technology and ETA Revolutionize Die System Design, Simulation, and Optimization

Dynaform-OP
East Lansing, MI (October 16, 2012) – Designing die systems that yield great looking designs with minimal waste, optimal performance, and an absence of wrinkling and cracking is a daunting task. ETA’s new DynaForm OP™, part of the Inventium Suite™ of products, provides the perfect solution. DynaForm OP™ combines the power and speed of Red Cedar Technology's SHERPA™ optimization engine with the simulation and analysis strengths of the DynaForm product to deliver a solution that makes it simple to optimize complex die designs. Initially, DynaForm OP™ will be focused on supporting drawbead optimization to determine proper binder force, lubrication, gage, and material. The module will also support 2D optimization of blank shape and size. Eventually, the two companies expect to offer fully automatic die face optimization.

The new OP module features an internal incremental solver that delivers exceptional speed using symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) on dual core and quad core PCs running Windows 7.

Under the new agreement, ETA will embed SHERPA™ into the DynaForm OP product in an OEM licensing arrangement.
