Altair Engineering, Inc. (USA) – XLDyn is now available for download by HyperWorks users.
The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) added systems engineering software from XLDyn, LLC to its lineup of software partnerships. The software is made up of two modules, XLSE and XL1D, which work together to automate the creation of system models and perform one dimensional (1D) multi-physics simulations.
"Our partnership with XLDyn is one we’ve been looking forward to,” said Carlo Damiani, Vice President System Modeling at Altair. “One of the most exciting aspects is that it offers a great interface with solidThinking Activate, which will provide our joint users with not only top-notch system modeling capabilities, but also an easy to use environment for requirements and verification.”
XLSE is a model and math based systems engineering tool to automate the creation of system models whose requirements can be verified by tightly integrated simulation and tests. The software synchronizes the Object Management Group Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML) diagram, Table and Word document views of the design requirements to support parametric, block definition, requirement, package and internal block diagrams. XL1D provides 1D multi-physics simulation for controls, mechanical, electrical, and thermal elements with multiple solution types. These modules together create an excellent tool for balancing requirements and design parameters at the system, subsystem and component levels.
"We are thrilled to be joining forces with the Altair community,” said Thomas Tecco, Chief Operating Officer at XLDyn. “Our systems modeling software brings new and innovative capabilities to complement those already a part of the Altair offering, so we are confident this partnership holds many good things to come for systems engineers across our global user base.”
The XLDyn software is widely applicable across industries, and is best suited for those with interdependent and complex requirements. It provides systems and product development engineers with the ability to develop and track product requirements and graphically document the requirement verification methods to appropriately balance and optimize the designs to be sure targets are met.
About the Altair Partner Alliance:
Altair’s HyperWorks platform applies a revolutionary subscription-based licensing model in which customers use floating licenses to access a broad suite of Altair-developed, as well as third-party, software applications on demand. The Altair Partner Alliance effectively extends the HyperWorks Platform from more than 20 internally developed solutions to upwards of 60 applications with the addition of new partner applications. Customers can invoke these third-party applications at no incremental cost using their existing HyperWorks licenses. Customers benefit from unmatched flexibility and access, resulting in maximum software utilization, productivity and ROI.
About XLDyn, LLC:
The XLDyn mission is to develop system engineering tools that are fully integrated with an intuitive and easy to use graphical interface. We have two modules developed in Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework. XLSE for authoring OMG SysML compliant system models and XL1D for authoring and simulating detailed 1D multi-physics systems models. The XLDyn technology is covered by three approved U.S. Patents, plus one pending.
Product success requires meeting or exceeding the customer expectations. Engineers need to define requirements, trace relationships, verify status against targets in one easy to use software tool. The solution to this is XLDyn as it provides the most integrated and easy to use Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) software for requirements and verification tracking. It has a wide range of functionality needed by Systems and Simulation Engineers and at the same time provides a “project view” capability that is ideal for managers and teams to keep abreast of project status. XLDyn is the perfect tool for balancing designs at the system, subsystem and component level.
Founded in 1985, Altair is focused on the development and application of simulation technology to synthesize and optimize designs, processes and decisions for improved business performance. Privately held with more than 2,600 employees, Altair is headquartered in Troy, Michigan, USA with more than 45 offices throughout 20 countries, and serves more than 5,000 corporate clients across broad industry segments.
