Ceetron and Fraunhofer SCAI sign contract

The contract gives Fraunhofer SCAI access to use all of Ceetrons software tools for 3D visualization with new versions of CAE software from Fraunhofer SCAI.

As part of the agreement, Ceetron GmbH will develop a new on-line visualization component (MpCCI Visualizer) for the application MpCCI. MpCCI is the leading and open interface to couple different simulation codes for multi-disciplinary applications (www.mpcci.de).

The first software release from Fraunhofer SCAI that includes Ceetron technology will be MpCCI 3.1 – scheduled for release in January 2009. The MpCCI Visualizer that will be part of this release is currently under development by Ceetron GmbH on specifications from Fraunhofer SCAI. An important part of the development project is to include features for online monitoring of coupled analyses – for this part of the project, software developers from Fraunhofer SCAI and Ceetron GmbH will be cooperating closely.

Klaus Wolf, head of the Multiphysics-Application group at SCAI, says: “The cooperation with Ceetron provides Fraunhofer SCAI with an enhanced visualization tool. By integrating this customized tool into the MpCCI environment Fraunhofer SCAI can invest more effort into the core development of MpCCI itself. Fraunhofer SCAI will also use the GLview API to develop new pre- and post-processing software. These tools will offer advanced solutions for multi-physics data mapping, optimization in manufacturing process chains, and sensitivity analysis of input/output correlations in CAE.”

“I am very satisfied and proud that we have reached an agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI, and I am convinced that the Ceetron technology will enable Fraunhofer SCAI to implement state-of-the-art visualization solutions for their CAE applications. The agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI will further strengthen Ceetrons position as a leading provider of 3D Visualization solutions to the CAE market worldwide. We see this as starting-point for a long lasting cooperation between the two organizations”, says Ceetrons CEO Dr. Tor Helge Hansen.
