News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that Volkswagen AG, one of the world's largest car producers, has signed a master agreement with ANSYS and intends to widen its use of the most comprehensive engineering simulation solution available today.

The strategic decision to use ANSYS software was due both to the bandwidth of applications that can be addressed as well as to the innovative ANSYS Workbench platform that allows for a substantial process compression.

In its research and development, Volkswagen uses structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and explicit analysis tools from ANSYS to perform, among other applications, studies on climate control, headlights and engine internal flow.

"Simulation Driven Product Development(TM) is applied in nearly every industry to drive product development and accelerate time to market," said Dr. Albrecht Gill, regional sales director at ANSYS Germany. "Mere experience and prototyping is not sufficient in today's dynamic environment. Forward-looking companies like Volkswagen are increasing their use of simulation technology to lower their development costs and gain more confidence in designs."

"The automotive market is highly competitive, and technological advances are being incorporated in modern cars at an ever-faster pace. To stay at the top, there is no way around applying simulation tools to drive product development and innovation. Our decision for simulation software from ANSYS is based on the depth and breadth of the solution we needed to cover our simulation needs," said Dr. Ralph Sundermeier, head of the Department for CAE-methods at Volkswagen AG. "The ANSYS Workbench concept is convincing because we can easily do coupled simulations and, in this way, accurately account for the entire range of physics."
