MSC Software partners with VCollab to improve collaboration during product development

The Digital CAE reporting software, VCollab, is now available through the MSCOne token-based access system, enabling MSC Software customers to produce interactive model visualizations and build reports using data from CAE tools such as MSC Nastran, Marc, Adams and SimManager that share valuable product development insights with business and technical stakeholders to aid review meetings and improve productivity.

VCollab helps organizations maximize the return on their simulation investments by automating the creation of “Digital CAE Reports” from native simulation results. These can be easily shared with stakeholders to streamline design decision making processes and keep up with the cadence and accessibility of information sharing that’s increasingly required in product development. These capabilities are now available through MSCOneXT (MSCOne Extended Edition), which enhances MSC’s comprehensive CAE portfolio with access to tools from industry-leading technology partners.

These Digital CAE Reports are designed to provide high-fidelity, actionable simulation insights in an interactive html-based format that can be accessed and explored by anyone with a web browser. This portability was driven by the needs of CAE analysts within major OEMS that needed a way to provide actionable insights efficiently to stakeholders – be that discrete engineering teams that do not necessarily have access to the same CAE tools or designers and product management. Reports that are typically created manually as slides and can take hours to compile.
