Bruchem, June 30 2015 – The expansion of the SIMULIA Portfolio through acquisitions has made more technologies readily available, but also created a need to rationalize release numbering. To make it easier to identify releases that work together, in the summer of 2015 SIMULIA plans to roll out a new and consistent release numbering system for Abaqus, Isight, Tosca & fe-safe. Following Dassault Systèmes corporate practices, SIMULIA releases will carry the number of the calendar year of the release plus one.

There will be no releases numbered Abaqus 6.15, Isight 5.10, Tosca Structure 8.2, Tosca Fluid 2.5 or fe-safe 6.6. Releases for all of these programs will be consolidated under the new numbering system. The following deliveries scheduled for the summer of 2015, will be identified as release “2016”: Abaqus 2016, Isight 2016, Tosca Structure 2016, Tosca Fluid 2016, fe-safe 2016.

This change should eliminate questions such as, “What release of fe-safe works with Abaqus 6.14?”
