TROY, Mich., (May 31, 2006)
- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that strengthen client innovation and decision-making, will host the grand opening of the Altair Design Studio on Thursday, June 8, 2006, at the company’s Troy, Mich., headquarters. The event runs from 5:30 until 9:00 p.m. and includes a tour of the new industrial design facility and a presentation on the benefits of leveraging human creativity with advanced technology to deliver innovative products. Attendees will also have an opportunity to experience a three-dimensional virtual reality environment configured to assist in the product design process.
The Altair Design Studio was created to provide a unique, cross-functional environment in which world-class designers and engineers could work together using the industry’s most advanced simulation and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools to achieve a powerful synergy of creativity and technology. This ongoing, dynamic collaboration supports Altair’s competitive strategy to integrate simulation and optimization earlier in the development process. This, in turn, facilitates bringing innovative products to market faster, without the need for time-consuming, costly physical modeling and testing.
"Altair designers and engineers are some of the most talented in the world," said James R. Scapa, Altair president and CEO. "In the new Design Studio, we combine the creative energy of designers with the functional expertise of engineers in an open physical space that is conducive to teamwork and fresh thinking. Then, we bring the most advanced simulation and engineering technology available into the mix early in the development process."
