Altair Integrates OpenPDM Technology into Altair Hyperworks

PROSTEP and Altair, a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), have expanded their long-standing partnership, making it easier to connect Altair’s design and simulation platform Altair HyperWorks to popular PLM solutions. Altair integrates powerful OpenPDM connectors to corresponding PLM systems directly into the platform’s CAE solutions such as Altair HyperMesh.


PROSTEP’s provides support for proactive production control in the shipbuilding industry

Maritime systems such as cruise ships and frigates comprise several million components, far exceeding the magnitude of other industrial products. This poses particular challenges for shipyards in terms of production planning and control. As part of the ProProS project, PROSTEP has developed a new planning methodology based on a digital twin together with the Lürssen shipyard group and the Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL) at RWTH University in Aachen, with the aim of providing shipyards with better supports. The project, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Action (BMWK), was brought to a successful close at the end of May.

PROSTEP sponsors TU Darmstadt's DART Racing Team

PROSTEP sponsors TU Darmstadt’s DART Racing Team

The DART Racing Team at TU Darmstadt recently unveiled the pi2023 electric bolide, with which the team will compete in four Formula Student competitions this summer in the categories Electric and Driverless. The PROSTEP logo has been emblazoned on the monocoque of the newly designed vehicle for the first time. The Darmstadt-based PLM consulting and software company is now supporting the Formula Student team of the local TU as a Gold Sponsor. PROSTEP had previously sponsored students by donating powerful computers for performing complex simulation tasks.


PROSTEP supports the exchange of 3D data in OCX format

Darmstadt, May 2023 – In the absence of a universally accepted format for exchanging 3D data, shipyards, design offices and classification societies have up until now continued to exchange drawings of the hull structure, especially in the early design phase. With OCX, however, that is due to change. The companies involved want to establish drawing-free processes and drastically reduce the time and effort needed to create drawings or new designs in special calculation tools with the help of the new standard. As a member of the OCX consortium, PROSTEP develops solutions that enable the use of OCX data in IT systems that do not yet support this standard.
