Design for Sustainability from MSC

Hexagon MSC Software addresses the use of CAE software in the Design for Sustainability – “Manufacturing processes today span everything from aerospace to automotive, chemical processing to oil & gas, and electronics to shipbuilding. Yet, all these contribute to CO2 emissions and environmental pollution as well as intensive use of our world’s precious materials, water and energy natural resources.”

“CAE today is proven to reduce waste at the conceptual design stage; reducing physical prototyping, minimizing acoustic pollution, delivering right-first-time customized and lightweight solutions, ensuring energy efficient buildings, optimizing materials usage and fueling the renewables revolution. CAE delivers manufacturing cost savings, productivity improvements, and ultimately quality products designed with the intent to meet all environmental challenges today from your conceptual idea to your product’s full lifecycle in the circular economy. At Hexagon | MSC Software we help companies accelerate green technologies and deliver renewable solutions to drive the shift toward a sustainable future.” Learn more at
