- French aerostructures leader further improves product quality by adopting
Phoenix Integration solutions
TOULOUSE, France
,
Sept. 13, 2012
/PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Integration, a
leading provider of software for engineering automation, integration, and
design optimization, today announced that its flagship software, PHX
ModelCenter®, will be widely deployed by Aerolia, provider of equipped
fuselage aerostructures for all Airbus aircraft programs and the Bombardier
Global 7000 and 8000 programs.
Engineering processes in aerostructure design are uniquely challenging
because they vary greatly among aircraft programs and involve a myriad of
simulation tools, including commercial, legacy, in-house, and OEM frameworks.
"For years, due to diversity of clients and programs, our engineers developed
their own macros and tools to simplify daily work. But these integrations were
not robust enough to adapt to other processes and aircraft programs,"
explained Mr. William Belloc, head of Engineering Capabilities at Aerolia.
Through the use of PHX ModelCenter, Aerolia's engineers are now able to
quickly wrap applications like Nastran, Isami, SAFE, Airbus PSN applications or
other Excel macros, without any change required on the existing IT
infrastructure, to automate process execution for better efficiency and
robustness while harmonizing methods across aircraft programs.
Following a thorough testing phase focused on stress, fatigue, and CAD
processes, Aerolia proved PHX ModelCenter's ability to share integrated
processes to the whole engineering community and improve the processes
themselves by eliminating error due to manual translation. Ultimately, the
resulting robust processes and ability to run more simulations yield improved
product quality.
"The light installation procedures and easy adoption convinced us to widely
deploy PHX ModelCenter and migrate many of our engineering processes," said
Mr. Belloc. "We are confident that PHX ModelCenter will allow us to improve
and leverage processes for the whole engineering community."
