MTU selects Altair as its strategic partner for CAE pre- and post-processing and HPC workload management solutions

14 Feb 2012 Troy - MTU Aero Engines has selected HyperWorks as its primary strategic solution for CAE pre- and post-processing and PBS Professional for high performance computing tasks. HyperWorks is Altair’s comprehensive simulation platform for rapid design exploration and decision-making.

MTU selected HyperWorks following a year-long enterprise benchmark that deeply investigated all major CAE commercial software packages. As a result, MTU will deploy the HyperWorks modules HyperMesh and HyperView across the bigger part of its development groups worldwide, entirely replacing its former commercial pre- and post-processing solution.

PBS Professional, Altair's commercial-grade workload management and job submission solution, provides a flexible, on-demand Cloud computing environment that allows enterprises to easily share distributed computing resources. PBS Professional will serve as MTU's strategic workload management solution, handling job distribution and scheduling of high-performance enterprise computing resources.

"Selecting Altair has been a strategic decision for MTU", stated Dr. Hans-Peter Hackenberg, MTU's manager of structural mechanics, thermal analysis, air and oil systems. "We were looking for a long-term partner able to provide us with the best tools on the market as well as with sound technical know-how in the aero engines domain and continuous support to integrate the software into our processes. HyperWorks has demonstrated market leadership in modeling and visualization technology, which will help us to increase productivity and quality in product development. Moreover, best-in-class existing multi-solver interfaces to third-party solvers and customized interfaces to in-house tools will allow us to harmonize processes and tools in the structural and thermal analysis environments."

"In addition to HyperWorks, we chose PBS Professional for our high performance computing needs", stated Dr. Hartmut Scheitle, from MTU's IT department for CAE. "As the number of cluster CPUs continued to rapidly increase, we saw the necessity to find a workload management software able to provide the needed functionalities and robustness, and at the same time, minimize licensing costs. Altair's licensing system has allowed us to achieve this goal."

Erwin A. Pignitter, Senior Vice President and CIO of MTU Aero Engines, outlined: "MTU's high technology products require an optimal integration of IT-tools, processes and IT-infrastructure. Powerful CAE-tools like HyperWorks help us to follow that strategic direction."

"We are very pleased with MTU’s decision and are looking forward to working with the company to integrate our tools into its development process", stated Dr. Uwe Schramm, country manager for Altair Germany. "A growing number of aerospace manufacturers and suppliers turn to HyperWorks; and with our offerings in engineering services, our support and Cloud-computing capabilities, I am sure we will be able to satisfy their needs, including the required customization, training, interfaces and support. Being an engineering company ourselves, we speak their language, understand their needs, and are able to provide them with the tools and support they ask for."
