What's New in the SIMULIA 2016 Product Releases?

January 18, 2016

Start 2016 with the most powerful and complete technology and solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering simulation with the latest product updates from the SIMULIA portfolio release.

The latest releases (available since November 2015) include extended packaging enabling us to offer leading-edge technology at the best value available in the marketplace today. With extended packaging, users enjoy access to a broad cross-section of products - both interactive and solvers - from a single license pool. In addition, all versions of portfolio products will now follow a year-based naming convention to provide consistency.
