Alenia Aeronautica selects Fiper from SIMULIA for enterprise-wide simulation integration and collaboration

Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Alenia Aeronautica, "a Finmeccanica Company", a major commercial and defense aeronautics supplier, has chosen Fiper from SIMULIA as a key component of their enterprise-wide simulation process integration and collaboration framework to be developed under the Alenia Networked Enterprise Transformation (AleNET) initiative, which has been created to accelerate Alenia's product development and innovation.  

Within the scope of the Virtual and Physical Prototype Simulation stream of the AleNET project, Fiper will be used and integrated in the Alenia VPPS platform to capture and manage simulation workflows used across the multi-disciplinary design domain.  SIMULIA will work with Alenia engineers and third-party partners, including Exemplar s.r.l., to implement the project.  

"We selected Fiper for its capability to efficiently capture simulation workflows and its open component architecture that allows us to integrate a variety of in-house and commercial analysis systems," said Vittorio Selmin, ALENET VPPS leader, Alenia Aeronautica. "Fiper enhances our VPPS vision to leverage the broader scope of process integration within the framework of Simulation Lifecycle Management and enterprise-wide PLM".  

"Companies such as Alenia are demanding open architecture solutions that allow them to make simulation an integral, decision-driving practice within their product development process," said Ken Short, VP Strategy and Marketing, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes.  "The selection of Fiper by Alenia confirms our strategy of providing robust Simulation Lifecycle Management solutions that help companies improve efficiency while reducing the time and cost associated with bringing high-quality products to market." As part of SIMULIA's Simulation Lifecycle Management portfolio, Fiper provides an open engineering framework to integrate, automate, and manage simulation processes and computing resources
