If you have missed or want to re-watch our live webinar Accelerate Aircraft Design with model-based design automation and collaborative MDO,” which we have co-hosted with integration and optimization experts ESTECO, fill in the form. We will send you immediately the entire webinar video. We hope you find it inspiring!
An important objective of our model-based platform is to extend the scope of multi-disciplinary design methodologies from the early phases of the product development process (conceptual and preliminary design) to the later ones and to support evolving investigations in a single environment.
Our platform is highly scalable and extensible enabling you to incrementally increase the fidelity of the multi-disciplinary product model and seamlessly integrate commercial or proprietary analysis methods. Its open architecture also makes it very easy to interface our design platform with third-party process integration or physics-based simulation tools.
Our preliminary design solutions are embedded in an efficient ecosystem of supporting technologies:
Aerospace is a research-intensive industry and relies on universities and research institutions to contribute advanced product and process knowledge that can be translated into technological innovation.
