Simcenter (a.k.a. Simcenter 3D) directly addresses the challenges you face with simulation today through a modern and completely integrated environment that delivers significant benefits. Simcenter 3D does not require NX CAD and can be used as a standalone pre/ postprocessor with support for multi-CAD geometry.

Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone simulation environment.

Why Simcenter?

Simcenter 3D builds on a heritage which spans over 40 years and encompasses well known CAE brands like Simcenter Nastran, SDRC I-deas®. Simcenter 3D directly addresses the challenges you face with simulation today through a modern and completely integrated environment that delivers significant benefits. Simcenter 3D does not require NX CAD and can be used as a standalone pre/postprocessor with support for multi-CAD geometry. Simcenter 3D delivers additional benefits when used in situations where NX is used for design, such as seamless data transfer between the design team and analysis team.

Simcenter 3D delivers increased production speeds to your entire product development cycle so you can bring your products to market faster. More efficient simulation processes also lead to more innovation by allowing more design-analysis iterations that can be used to test more design alternatives and make critical design decisions earlier.

Your product quality is increased by more easily simulating real-world conditions. You get a truer understanding of how your product will perform. Simcenter 3D also facilitates easier trade-off analysis across multiple disciplines so you develop more robust products. Requirements tracking and reporting capabilities allow you to quickly gauge if your product is performing to specification.

You get lower overall product development costs. Faster simulation processes mean analysis results are fed back to design earlier, leading to a reduction in costly, late design change orders. Additionally, correlating simulation with physical testing provides more confidence in your analysis result so you reduce costly physical prototypes.




NX CAD (formerly Unigraphics) is a robust 3D solution that provides fast and realistic concept design and modeling. Superior in power and flexibility, NX CAD design tools are a breakthrough in the industry, setting new standards for speed performance and ease of use. Product design is about innovation.

Why NX CAD?

NX CAD is an integrated solution that helps you develop innovative new products. With leading-edge design tools and technologies, NX streamlines and accelerates the product development process. Some key benefits include:

  • Less re-design, fewer errors, and better quality
  • Evaluate design quality, projected cost, and manufacturability before physical prototyping
  • Capture knowledge and automation tools
  • Powerful 3D design capabilities including: Wireframe, surface, solid, and direct modeling
  • Freeform shape modeling, surface continuity, analysis, simulation, and visualization tools
  • Integration with other applications for simulation, tooling, and machining
  • Create quality and accurate rendered images faster and easier

Manufacturing companies today are driven by increasing pressure to develop more innovative products in a shorter time frame than ever before. The first step in rethinking the business model surrounding product development is to transform the design process. Using NX CAD for 3D design, you can improve your overall performance

Teamcenter® software is a modern, adaptable (PLM) system



Teamcenter is an innovative product lifecycle management (PLM) system that digitally connects people and processes across functional silos. This system allows you to deliver increasingly complex products while maximizing productivity and streamlining operations. Check out Teamcenter Rapid Start for a preconfigured, out-of-the-box PDM solution.



Why Teamcenter?

Maximize Your Productivity with Teamcenter

The lack of a common, accurate asset/product knowledge base inhibits efficient service lifecycle management. This can lead to ordering the wrong parts due to lack of asset configuration, status, and history; lowering first-time fix rates, and repeat service events. Using Teamcenter, you can establish a single knowledge base to support service and product engineering while improving service operations.

With the aid of Teamcenter, you can:

Reduce time and effort with a single source for generating and managing requirement documents Improve quality by linking requirements to functional, logical, and physical implementation so you can verify and validate requirements are met Ensure compliance by defining, managing, and tracking customer requirements across the entire product lifecycle.

With Teamcenter, you can manage business processes, from the early stages of design to the actual product launch and beyond. Teamcenter enables a truly concurrent engineering environment that allows you to leverage product designs while simultaneously optimizing and synchronizing manufacturing deliverables. This helps you better manage lifecycle costs, be more productive across multiple domains, and maintain product quality targets.
