Altair Engineering GmbH is the German subsidiary of an international US-based technology company that provides software and cloud solutions for product development, high-performance computing (HPC) and data intelligence. It is Altair's mission to make organizations in various branches of industry more competitive in a networked world, while, at the same time, shaping a more sustainable future. The exhibits Altair (recently in the headlines for acquiring simulation pioneer SIMSOLID) is showing at this year’s HANNOVER MESSE are all about industrial intelligence through the convergence of simulation and data science.
"Nowadays, developers have to deal with a variety of different applications, development environments and languages, and syntaxes, which makes product development seem almost like a modern-day Tower of Babel," explains Dr. Pietro Cervellera, Vice President of EMEA Operations at Altair. "Altair has created an integration program that links all the disciplines involved in the development process and allows for a new kind of simulation-driven collaboration. This provides a shared basis for cooperation between system developers, structural and kinematic designers, calculation and control engineers, manufacturing experts and data scientists. Thanks to advances in IoT and data intelligence, it’s now easier than ever to implement methods for digital twins and predictive maintenance and get a holistic overview of every product." Visitors are therefore invited to come and experience Altair's innovative product development digitization solutions for themselves - some of which have been used by companies such as ABB, Brompton Bike, Schneider Electric and Thyssen Krupp Elevators.
