Altair announced that its product development services division, Altair ProductDesign, has received a 2013 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. To qualify for the award, Altair maintained a Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period.
“We have worked with Boeing since 2005 and are honored to receive this award in acknowledgement of our efforts over the last twelve months,” said Mak Gilbert, engineering manager at Altair ProductDesign. “Our specialist teams work alongside Boeing’s engineers to optimize the performance and minimize the weight of their aircraft on a daily basis. We are grateful to receive this award as a sign of the successful and close working relationship between our two companies.”
Boeing deploys Altair’s HyperWorks simulation suite throughout its engineering teams and makes extensive use of Altair ProductDesign’s engineering experts who work onsite with Boeing’s engineering teams. The combined team’s work covers minimum-weight design, stress analysis, FE analysis, process automation and methods development for metallic and composite aircraft structures and tooling.
“Boeing has awarded Altair ProductDesign with multiple Excellence Awards since our partnership began, and we are honored to receive this award for another successful year as an engineering partner,” said Robert Yancey, Altair vice president of aerospace solutions. “We strive to push the boundaries of what our engineering simulation software can deliver in the aerospace industry, and this Excellence Award is a very positive public acknowledgement that our technologies and engineers are delivering value to a world leading aircraft manufacturer.”
