ESI and JMDA team up

to enable the Virtual Prototyping of Child Car Seats

Virtually testing child seats with restraint systems early in the design phase
to reach higher performance levels

Paris, France - January 18, 2016 -
ESI Group
, pioneer and world-leading solution provider in
Virtual Prototyping
for manufacturing industries, announces the signature of a strategic
partnership withJMDA, global child car seat design and development
specialist. By signing this agreement, JMDA and ESI are joining forces to
enable child car seat manufacturers to reach new levels of technical
understanding and design excellence. The main benefit of combining child car
seat design and Virtual Prototyping, using ESI'sVirtual Seat Solution, is to
virtually test a proposed design, to gain information about expected product
performance and regulatory compliance before committing to major investments.
The seat and its restraint system can be optimized early on in the design
phase; reaching higher performance levels, while reducing product development
and manufacturing costs. What's more, Virtual Seat Solution enables
manufacturers to achieveVirtual Pre-Certification,accelerating the product
certification process while lowering R&D costs and making less conservative
design decisions.
