MSC Software Corporation has partnered with the Campania Region Technological Aerospace District to launch the SIMULAB project. MSC will join efforts with DAC (Campania Aerospace Cluster), Formit, Sixtema and CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Centre) to facilitate the development of companies involved in the Italian Aerospace industry.
According to a company press release, SIMULAB will function as:
- A virtual laboratory to disseminate the methodologies and knowledge in various aspects of aviation engineering (best practices of standardized methods and procedures, supporting technologies, knowledge and experience);
- An environment for the management of projects and related data;
- An e-learning platform to organize the technical staff training while minimizing costs and interference with other work activities;
- A computerized tool that integrates the management aspects with the operational ones to conduct a program of research/development (i.e. integration of engineering analysis tasks in project management and planning, and then reporting and checking their outcome in the management system).
Within the partnership, MSC Software will integrate SimManager, MSC Apex and MSC Nastran.
