ESI Group: ESI Connects Virtual Prototyping with Product Operational Performance

ESI Connects Virtual Prototyping

with Product Operational Performance

Empowering Manufacturers to Master their Full

"Product Performance Lifecycle" (PPL)

Paris, France - May 17, 2016 -
ESI Group, pioneer and world-leading solution provider in
Virtual Prototypingfor manufacturing industries, introduces a complete and
transformational
offering to help industrial manufacturers leapfrog their traditional "Product
Lifecycle Management" (PLM), which focuses on design and development, and
manage instead their "Product Performance Lifecycle" (PPL) during the
anticipated operational product life all the way from maintenance to
phase-out. With recent acquisitions in Systems Modeling, Cloud delivery, Data
Analytics and Machine Learning, ESI has dramatically extended the customer
value of its core business of Virtual Prototyping. Today, ESI enables its
customers to close the loop between:

* on the one hand the product development space, using digital models to
virtually design and develop - i.e. test, fabricate and assemble - products
before they exist in the real world
* and on the other hand the product actual operations - i.e. once the product
has rolled out of the assembly line - by incorporating real-time and
real-world data to better understand and mitigate how a product is used,
mis-used, ages and ultimately fails or is retired.

Product Performance Lifecycle (PPL) implementation is especially relevant to
the autonomous systems market (such as for autonomous vehicles) and in
extension, to all other markets related to connected sensors and
cyber-objects, which are currently experiencing exponential growth. ESI's
Virtual Prototyping solutions, which already combine 3D-4D detailed 'passive'
modeling and 0D-1D reduced 'active' system integration, are now acquiring a
'learning' aptitude to get autonomous and smart. Virtual Prototyping immersed
in PPL is set to reach a larger community of professional consumers in the
world of smart operations, predictive maintenance&competitive services.

"ESI's innovative strategy to combine Virtual Prototyping with data-driven
analytics and immersive Virtual Reality experience enables industrial
manufacturers to maximize the useful and reliable operational lifetime of
their products through constant performance management,"
saysCristian Tanasescu
, Executive Vice President ofESI Group."Product Performance Lifecycle (PPL)
strongly differentiates ESI from
traditional PLM vendors."

ESI has recently executed a series of strategic acquisitions destined to make
Virtual Prototyping vastly more valuable and accessible. In order to develop
smarter and tentatively autonomous products, designers and engineers must
anticipate multiple new unknown and associated risks, which now call for
simulating the somewhat unclear ways different sensors andsystemsmay interact
and function/dysfunction together. In addition, it becomes increasingly
critical to enable system 'fault' prediction at an operational level,
resulting for instance from design weaknesses, fabrication defects, or wear
and tear, to mitigate detrimental consequences right from the conception
phase. With the ominous swell of data coming from various sensors, as our
vehicles, phones, homes, and all other 'smart' objects in our daily life
become interconnected through the pervasing growth of the "Internet of
Things", it is essential and critical that not only data analysts, but also
engineers, designers and other stakeholders learn how to make sense and
create value out of the mass of "big data" and intelligence continuously
created.

The users of ESI's Virtual Prototyping solutions are entitled to and expect to
leverage the latest advancements in Data Analytics and Machine Learning
technologies in an intuitive way, so as to get quicker answers from their
virtual prototypes and to anticipate any failures in their end product
operations. This is what ESI'sData Analyticsteam is dedicated to deliver. We
also expect to refine and provide advanced Computer Aided Engineering
solutions (CAE) to any 'mobile' user around the world, without any
significant hardware investment. Today,ESI Cloudenables easy-to-use CAE in
the Cloud and will deliver more and more Cloud solutions in the near future,
so that Virtual Prototyping can be easily accessible to an increasingly large
community of users. Thanks to ESI's recent acquitisions of pioneering
technologies
(namely:CyDesign,Amoeba/Presto,Ciespace,PicViz/INENDI,Civitec,ITIandMineset
Inc.), all these concepts and creative teams are now put in synergistic use,
to support data-driven intelligent decision making.

The deeply transformational Product Performance Lifecycle (PPL) approach
enables manufacturers to develop what has been coined as the "Virtual Twin"
of their real-world product; one that can be used to make smarter decisions
in all product lifecycle stages from design, development, testing,
fabrication, operations and maintenance-repair to phase-out. ESI is now
poised to equip industrial leaders with the right tools to develop connected
products and predict operation and maintenance conditions from a very early
stage of product design and development.

The worlds of R&D and of real-life maintenance and operations have never been
so close. ESI is now addressing the extended market of professional consumers
- maintenance operators, and certified technicians - who deal with closer
interactions with products and consumers. In turn, the information obtained
in the Internet of Things via integrated Electronic Control Units (ECU) and
the feedback from professional consumers must reach designers&development
engineers in order to further anticipate and improve product performance at
the operational level.

Meet ESI!
Cristian Tanasescu will present at theNeedham Emerging Technology Conference,
taking place in New York City, NY, on May 18-19, 2016.
