Engineous Software has announced that Fluent has joined the FIPER program and will provide a CFD component as part of the FIPER solution.
The FIPER project is a four-year $21.5 million project co-funded by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) as part of its Advanced Technology Program. FIPER establishes a “Federated Intelligent Product EnviRonment” that streamlines the design of engineered products, integrating legacy and best-of-breed analytical and design tools through a web-enabled environment.
Fluent and Engineous will initially team to gather requirements, develop, implement, and test components in conjunction with FIPER pilot projects being executed in real world customer environments. Several pilot projects and demonstrations are underway in major manufacturing organizations such as GE, Parker Hannifin, Goodrich, and Honeywell.
