News CEDREM Engineering Services Company Expands Use of HyperWorks Michael J. Kidder Altair Engineering, Inc. Tel.: +1.248.614.2400, ext. 269 firstname.lastname@example.org Evelyn Gebhardt Blue Gecko Marketing Tel.: +49 6421 9684351 email@example.com Altair’s open architecture CAE suite improves customer relations and development processes at aerospace, offshore oil and defense engineering services provider TROY, Mich., April 28, 2009 – Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that the French-based engineering services provider, CEDREM, has expanded their use of HyperWorks to support projects in the aerospace, offshore oil and defense industries. Being a longtime RADIOSS customer, CEDREM has expanded their adoption of HyperWorks CAE suite technologies to include HyperMesh, HyperView, MotionView and HyperGraph. RADIOSS and these products will be used in combination with other CAD and CAE tools within projects for the defense industry, to simulate explosions and ballistic impact. In addition, CEDREM will use HyperWorks to develop finite element models and perform research studies on composite material structures. “The main reason we chose HyperWorks is that the suite offers a complete package for all types of simulation,” said Karine Thoral Pierre, Manager and Research Engineer at CEDREM France. “The open architecture allows easy data exchange with other CAE products, which is necessary for our customers and partners. As far as I am concerned, HyperMesh is the best pre-processing software available. After using it for some time, I believe the time savings in modeling alone is almost 50%, compared to many other tools. In addition, Altair’s support is very helpful and competent and the flexible licensing system is cost-effective also for smaller companies. Altair and its products help me to save time during the modeling phase and therefore allow for more time for intellectual and scientific research tasks to find the best possible design.” “HyperWorks is not just for the large enterprise,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, Managing Director, Altair Engineering, France. “Our flexible licensing system allows small and medium size businesses to cost-effectively take full advantage of the entire HyperWorks suite to improve their overall development process and products. We have enjoyed our long-standing business relationship with CEDREM and will continue to offer them the best possible solutions and support in the market.” About HyperWorks Built on a foundation of design optimization, performance data management and process automation, HyperWorks is an enterprise simulation solution for rapid design exploration and decision-making.
