Engineous Software, provider of the award-winning FIPER integration, automation and collaboration software, and Fujitsu, developer of the SynfiniWay service-oriented IT framework for technical computing, today announced a partnership to build an integrated solution combining FIPER and SynfiniWay. This solution will accelerate enterprise deployment of simulation-based engineering workflow processes, captured and managed by the FIPER engineering framework, and scheduled as SynfiniWay virtualized services across any heterogeneous global IT infrastructure. It will enable effective use of dispersed resources across an organization and support collaboration between partners in an extended enterprise.
“Engineous’ market leading technology enables companies to integrate their dissimilar engineering processes and then automate their execution in a distributed computing environment,” says Siu Tong, Chairman and Founder of Engineous Software. “Our customers continue to push the envelope in the size and complexity of these automated applications. In addition, globalization and the increasing scale of these organizations are major business challenges in today’s engineering environment. Combining the strengths of FIPER and SynfiniWay allows our customers to take full advantage of these changes, by creating innovative processes to integrate tools and knowledge across their entire business network.”
“Engineering organizations trying to achieve global scaling face major operational challenges such as sustaining the user workflows over a complex and ever-changing IT infrastructure,” explains Naoya Tamura, CEO of Fujitsu Systems Europe. “SynfiniWay addresses this problem by creating a robust and secure framework to virtualize data and compute resources, providing the solid industrialized IT foundation for FIPER users to run effective multi-site and even multi-company engineering workflows. We are pleased to welcome FIPER into our SynfiniWay framework enabling programme, and together with Engineous Software we see many opportunities where this solution will allow businesses to fully capitalize the potential of the extended enterprise.”
Engineous and Fujitsu intend to develop a closely-coupled solution that will offer a transparent interface between the capabilities of both sets of products. Using the proven design process features of FIPER, engineers will build and launch composite multi-domain workflows incorporating any resources published from the virtualized framework. SynfiniWay will then meta-schedule across the framework and manage the implicit data transfer between services, in particular optimizing the direct movement of the large engineering data files. Development of the integrated solution is targeted to begin in early 2008.
Engineous Software, Inc. provides process integration and design optimization software solutions and services. The company's iSIGHT software integrates key steps in the product design process, then automates and executes those steps through design exploration tools like optimization, DOE, and DFSS techniques. The FIPER infrastructure links these processes together in a unified environment. Through FIPER, models, applications and "best" processes are easily shared, accessed, and executed with other engineers, groups, and partners. Engineous operates numerous sales offices in the U.S., as well as wholly owned subsidiaries in Asia and Europe. Customers include leading Global 500 companies such as Airbus, Canon, General Electric, General Motors, Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Toshiba, MHI, Ford Motor Company, DaimlerChrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Renault, Hitachi, Peugeot, MTU Aero Engines, TRW, BMW, Rolls Royce, and Johnson Controls, Inc.
