Benchmark proves HyperMesh and HyperView to be best solutions to improve development processes at aerospace supplier

TROY, Mich., June 29, 2009 – Altair Engineering, Inc.(www.altair.com), a leading global provider of technology and services that empowers client innovation and decision-making, announced today that LISI AEROSPACE (www.lisi-aerospace.com), one of the leading providers of aeronautical fasteners and assembly components, has chosen the HyperWorks simulation platform in combination with its non linear simulation tools to reduce the time needed to develop new fastener systems.

“When selecting a new CAE product suite, we were strongly focused on finding a powerful toolset that would streamline our pre- and post-processing activities,” said Antoine Villet, FEA simulation engineer, LISI AEROSPACE. “In HyperWorks we found the tool suite we were looking for and throughout the entire benchmark and selection process Altair’s support was outstanding. HyperWorks modeling and visualization solutions, HyperMesh and HyperView, best suited our needs allowing us to model our components more accurately and faster. The open architecture of the software family is an additional plus since it allows us to use our component models with any type of solver that might be required.”

LISI AEROSPACE aggressively pursues using more simulation throughout their development processes. With their selection of HyperWorks, they will use HyperMesh to streamline the creation of finite element models to support their forging simulation processes. The broad range of HyperMesh algorithms for surface and volume meshing will help to drive future development activities at LISI AEROSPACE. HyperView, the HyperWorks post-processing solution, will be used for results visualization and automating reporting tasks.

“The close cooperation with LISI engineers during this benchmark allowed us to gain a much deeper understanding of their development processes, allowing our customer support team to really highlight core HyperWorks functionality to meet their needs and objectives,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, regional manager, Altair Engineering France. “This win is consistent with the growing adoption of HyperWorks that we see in the French aerospace industry. As the Lisi benchmark proved, the combination of our CAE technology, flexible licensing system, and open architecture software philosophy makes a compelling argument for manufacturers seeking a technological advantage and reduction in software costs.”
