US provider of virtual product development (VPD) technologies MSC.Software has come up with a range of new software and services packages targeted at the biomedical market and medical device manufacturers.
The company said this week that the new packages, that include custom software modules and professional services packages, are based around the VPD Campus licensing system.
"Medical device manufacturers spend an enormous amount on R&D and physical testing of new devices and mechanisms," said Frank Perna, chairman and chief executive officer of MSC.Software. " We have put together some competitive packages that give biomedical engineers the products they need to design and test new devices as quickly and efficiently as possible."
The company stressed that the MSC.Software Biomedical packages are tailored for specific industry segments in the $175 billion (€155bn) worldwide medical-device market. Each MSC.Software Biomedical Package includes a set of design, biomechanics, and finite element analysis (FEA) software and professional services options for a variety of medical applications.
The VPD Campus Licensing System is a renewable token-based licensing model that enables customers, claims the company, to access MSC.Software's portfolio of simulation tools from a single license. Included in the portfolio are analysis tools such as MSC.Nastran, MSC.Marc, and MSC.ADAMS, as well as specialised analysis tools such as MSC.Dytran and MSC.Fatigue.
