Bell Helicopter Textron selects MSC.Software's SimManager to drive innovation and accelerate new product development

MSC.Software (NASDAQ: MSCS), the leading global provider of enterprise simulation solutions including simulation software and services, today announced that Bell Helicopter Textron (NYSE: TXT) has selected its enterprise simulation management solution, SimManager to drive innovation and accelerate new product development.

SimManager, a component of SimEnterprise, is MSC.Software's enterprise simulation data and process management solution, and has been selected as a key component to support Bell Helicopter's initiative for accelerated new product development. The deployment of SimManager across Bell Helicopter's engineering organization is strategic to harnessing simulation data management and process automation, establishing a standardized simulation and testing knowledge database, and helping to rationalize in-house and legacy technology onto a common integrated environment.

"SimManager will enable us to manage simulation processes, resources and information across our engineering organization," said Christopher Spencer, Vice President Air Vehicle Engineering, Bell Helicopter Textron. "SimManager drives reliable, consistent and automated simulation methods and processes while capturing, sharing, and enabling reuse of engineering simulation data and processes to speed the innovation and product development process. This is key to the collaborative knowledge management environment that Bell Helicopter Textron is creating and is a critical factor in providing a foundation for best practices and continuous process improvement. Over time, simulation methods and processes can be improved to achieve results that can be relied on in place of physical prototypes, accelerating product development and reducing cost."

"Bell Helicopter's vision is an exciting example of how to harmonize, manage, and collaboratively extend engineering lifecycle processes across the enterprise including partners and suppliers and provides a strong testament to the value of the MSC.Software," said John Howaniec, Sr. Vice President Americas, MSC.Software. "Bell Helicopter Textron recognizes SimManager's innovation in providing organizations with the ability to work more efficiently, react more quickly, and to differentiate themselves and their products from the competition and has chosen MSC.Software as their enterprise simulation partner."
