Leading Australian Defense Company, Tenix, Selects ANSYS as its Enterprise-Wide CAE Software Supplier

    ANSYS Becomes Sole Supplier of Simulation Software

    SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., Aug. 7 /CNW/ -- ANSYS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSS), a global
innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product
development processes, today announced that Tenix Pty Limited has selected a
comprehensive computer-aided engineering (CAE) software suite from ANSYS, Inc.
to meet the needs of its aerospace, land, marine and electronics systems
divisions. Tenix, one of southeast Asia's largest independent defense and
technology contractors with operations spread throughout Australia and New
Zealand, will use the full suite of simulation capabilities from ANSYS for
enterprise-wide engineering simulation and analysis.
    "We standardized on software from ANSYS as our solution toolset because
it uniquely provides us with a strong set of structural analysis tools as well
as an impressive set of computational fluid dynamics capabilities," said Pat
Lockley, general engineering manager at Tenix. The company is using the
software from ANSYS to provide integrated, multiphysics solutions for
customized aircraft, land vehicles and ships to meet the needs of its civil
and military customers. "Having CAE solutions in a single, integrated software
environment means that we can deploy the best-available computer-based design
tools to our separate divisions; at the same time, we have a common
enterprise-wide toolset for all our defense-related engineering systems
integration projects."
    With ANSYS, Inc. now as its sole supplier of CAE solutions, Tenix has the
additional capability of carrying out fluid dynamics and blast simulations,
which will allow its geographically dispersed divisions to collaborate closely
and realize increased business synergies and efficiencies not possible before.
    "The Tenix decision to go with the full product portfolio from ANSYS
illustrates the benefits that can be gained by using a comprehensive
integrated suite," said Jim Cashman, president and chief executive officer at
ANSYS, Inc. "Only products from ANSYS can deliver the flexibility and accuracy
that Tenix demands for their unique applications. In addition, the defense
company now has headroom to grow their use of CAE to meet their evolving
business needs. As ANSYS continues to lead the industry in developing
integrated CAE solutions, Tenix will be able to take full advantage of our
ongoing significant investment in research, development and innovation."
