MSC.Software, a leading global provider of simulation software and services, today announced that Mando, one of the Korea’s leading automotive parts manufacturers has selected MSC.Software’s computer aided engineering (CAE) tools to improve its engineering productivity and efficiency.
As a strategic supplier for the leading automotive makers in Korea, Mando has stringent demands on the quantity and quality of their simulation and analysis projects. Making simulation a strategic business imperative, Mando leveraged MSC.Software’s engineering analysis solutions including Adams to integrate their modeling and simulation results into the automakers’ engineering processes in Korea.
“Mando has been using MSC.Software to perform quality checks and predict the life cycle for our products. As our virtual product development got more sophisticated, we needed to expand our requirement for simulation solvers. With MSC.Software suite of engineering solutions, we are able to perform various engineering analysis scenarios with maximum efficiency. More recently, Mando has increasingly focused our attention on driving engineering innovation in the automotive supply chain. Our expanded utilization of MSC.Software solutions including Nastran, Marc and Adams across multiple applications helps to streamline and improve the automotive makers’ production process as many of the automotive makers are already using MSC.Software solutions as their simulation analysis benchmark,” said Mr. Sane Chang, General Manager of CAE & NVH Team, Central R&D Center, Mando.
Mando is one of the largest and most competitive original equipment manufacturers in Korea. In particular, Mando utilizes automated systems to produce brake systems, steering systems, and suspension systems that are important to the performance of cars. Recognized worldwide for its engineering skills, Mando developed Korea’s first and the world’s fourth anti-lock brake and traction control systems in 1999. Mando’s brake systems are now supplied to domestic automobile manufactures as well as to the top 3 automobile manufacturers in the US. Mando’s steering systems are supplied to global automobile manufacturers, including GM, Ford and Chrysler. It is producing various types of suspension system for vehicles extending from passenger cars to large commercial vehicles. Mando also successfully developed many high-technology parts, including the 3-step ECS, fussy ECS, and Continuous Damping Control. Recently, Mando has focused on development of Active Safety Systems like SPAS (Smart Parking Assist System), SCC (Smart Cruise Control) and LKS (Lane Keeping System). Mando’s vision is to become one of the top 50 automotive part suppliers in the world within 2013 by expanding its business in areas such as X-By-Wire and Car-to-X communication. The research performance of the Mando Central Research Center has played a great role in securing global competitiveness for Korea’s automobile industry.
