FE-Design Group snapped up by Dassault Systèmes

Share this on social media:

Dassault Systèmes, a provider of 3D design software, 3D digital mock-up and product lifecycle management (PLM) products, has announced the acquisition of FE-Design Group, a company specialising in design optimisation for early-stage product development.

The acquisition of FE-Design, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, expands Dassault Systèmes’ Simulia applications to provide what it claims is the most complete design optimisation solution on the market. FE-Design has more than 200 global product manufacturer customers including General Motors, BMW, Siemens and Suzlon. The selling price of the company has not been disclosed.

'Design optimisation is a complex way of saying "finding the right design" for business, for customers, and for the world. This is why FE-Design is such a good fit for Dassault Systèmes,' said Bernard Charlès, president and CEO. 'Is it what customers want? Can we produce it quickly and effectively? And, is it right for a sustainable future? These are the questions industry must ask to harmonise products, nature and life.'
