UGS PLM Software Announces "Upgrade to UGS Femap" Offer

PLANO, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 23, 2007— UGS PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced a UGS Femap(TM) software upgrade for all users of mid-market standalone FEA products including Algor, CosmosDesignStar and Ansys DesignSpace. Users of these products will receive a credit for a portion of their existing investment, seat for seat, against the cost of purchasing Femap(R) with UGS NX(TM) Nastran, which will potentially result in savings of up to 75 percent on the software purchase, depending on their current product and level.

Transitioning to Femap provides users with access to extended simulation functionality not limited by more simplistic process wizards. In addition, quality results are assured through leveraging the NX(R) Nastran solver.

"With Femap, I can make choices that other software forces upon the user, and because I can control the execution of analysis step-by-step, I analyze what I need and not what the software wants," said Gianluca Camparini, Structural Design manager, MDT Mc Drill Technology. "While very intuitive, Femap with NX Nastran has proved to be the most effective solution."

Femap, the CAE component of the UGS Velocity Series(R) portfolio, is an advanced engineering analysis environment that is both CAD and solver neutral. Small- to medium-size companies often operate in a mixed CAD environment, therefore they benefit from a standalone simulation offering that can access data from different CAD systems.

Femap's advanced functionality and full exposure to all finite element modeling entities and methods allows users to go beyond the modeling limits of their current tools while maintaining their current levels of ease of use. Femap's depth of functionality helps users simulate real world complex engineering problems efficiently and accurately. Femap coupled with NX Nastran brings about a best-in-class solution that provides the assurance and robustness of a world-class solver with a rich simulation environment designed specifically for engineers.

This offer is available for a limited time. For full details, visit
