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.
