News CD-adapco, the leading global provider of Full-Spectrum flow and thermal simulation software and services, today announced that it has joined the Design/Simulation Council. The Design/Simulation Council is a consortium of manufacturers, suppliers and technology providers focused on improving interoperability and creating open standards within product development and simulation (CAE) technology.

Collaborative Product Data Associates (CPDA), an industry analyst organization that provides in-depth, collaborative research serving the design, engineering, and manufacturing markets, with specific expertise in product lifecycle management (PLM) technologies and processes, hosts the Council.

The aim is to promote a standard framework employing common terminology to integrate and optimize the diverse and divergent specialist activities currently fragmenting design efforts. This framework will allow companies to compare their processes with those of other companies, accelerate their strategic planning and better evaluate technologies for investment. Current participants and contributors of the Council include Airbus, General Motors, DaimlerChrysler, Lockheed Martin, Whirlpool, Hitachi, Ltd., Amcor PET Packaging, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, TRW Automotive, Delphi Automotive Systems, Procter & Gamble, Sandia National Laboratories, Aerospace Corporation. Current sponsors of the Council include technology companies such as MSC, UGS, CoMet Solutions, Engineous Software, and Altair Engineering.

"CD-adapco is wholly committed to being a leader in simulation technology business effectiveness within the bigger PLM picture and our customers have been very clear about wanting to work with us to automate and streamline their virtual product development process and architectures," said Steve MacDonald, co-founder and President of CD-adapco. "We are very excited to become part of the Design/Simulation Council and look forward to working with our customers and other industry leaders as we look for innovative ways to make our technologies more interoperable and strategic to our industry partnersí bottom lines."

"We are especially pleased to have CD-adapco, as the first vendor member focused on flow and thermal simulation solutions, join the council," said Don Brown, Chairman of CPDA. "CD-adapco's leadership in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), especially with its broad spectrum of customer-optimized solutions, as well as its deep expertise in advanced product functional simulation processes, will be a great asset to the council as we work on continuously broadening our open framework methodology and pilot projects."

CD-adapco is pleased to start the relationship with the council on a strong note by presenting at CPDA's March 15 one-day event exploring the latest thinking on the critical issues facing the integration of simulation with design, and then appearing on the panel at the related Georgia Tech "Frontiers in Design & Simulation Research 2006" Workshop the following day .
