Expanded use of HyperWorks advanced CAE tools saves time and costs for consulting companies and OEMs

TROY, Mich. USA (Jan. 10, 2007) - Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that strengthen client innovation and decision-making, and SOGETI High Tech, have signed a strategic agreement for the extended implementation of Altair's HyperWorks suite of integrated computer-aided engineering (CAE) software tools. SOGETI Group - a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, a leader in IT services and R&D outsourcing - offers a range of local professional services in high-tech consulting and information technology for large companies.

A long-term user of Altair's HyperMesh and OptiStruct software, SOGETI High Tech now plans to extend the use of those tools, as well as implement HyperStudy for consulting projects that require structural meshing, morphing and topology optimization. Until now, SOGETI High Tech has used HyperWorks tools primarily for applications within the aerospace industry, but plans to extend its use of the CAE suite to projects in other industries.

"We have been using HyperWorks for four years now, and have always been very satisfied with the results," said Philippe Sottocasa, technical manager of the SOGETI High Tech Branch. "HyperMesh is the best tool available for structural meshing. With our work, we strive to improve simulation processes not only within our company but also in customer projects. Thanks to HyperWorks, we are able to meet customer demands for simulation-based consulting tasks while shortening the simulation process."

"We are very pleased to see SOGETI High Tech taking greater advantage of the HyperWorks framework," said Mauro Guglielminotti, managing director of Altair Engineering in France. "As we have seen in several European countries - and now in France - a growing number of consulting companies recognize the value our tools bring to the product design process. The CAE framework for product design combines many capabilities under one interface and fulfills our customers' extremely varied engineering requirements."
