Why ANSA & META?
The flagship product, ANSA ⁄ META CAE pre- & post-processing suite is extensively deployed in many industries, including the automotive, motorsports, aerospace, defence, energy, maritime, offshore, etc.
ANSA is a multidisciplinary CAE pre-processing system that integrates functionality for full-model build up, from CAD data to ready-to-run solver input file for numerous analysis codes. Its rich automated functionality provides a uniquely productive modelling environment.
META is a multi-purpose CAE post-processing software that provides a broad range of functionality for analysing and reporting results from numerous solvers. Its innovative features, with high level of automation and customization, offer solutions with industry leading performance.
The combined and fully integrated ANSA / MΕΤΑ suite is the preferred choice of Industry worldwide as it seeks exceptional performance to impact its product development processes. Benchmarks performed by OEMs and their suppliers have shown 35% to 96% CAE process performance improvement over competitive software. At the same time, the resulting model quality improved by up to 60%.
Moreover ANSA & MΕΤΑ customers are seeing a Return-On-Investment (ROI) increase ranging from 60% to 98%. These results are based on comprehensive business analysis that accounts for the enhanced performance improvement along with all cost components such as software lease and employee costs along with associated training time and costs.
These metrics, which establish the superiority of ANSA & MΕΤΑ’s CAE processes, are confirmed in independent industry benchmarks and testimonials. Our software was proven to be not only the most effective CAE pre- and post-processing tool, but also the only one that could address some of the unique simulation challenges. The speed and versatility of ANSA / META is a result of the synthesis of concepts developed and perfected by BETA CAE Systems. Innovation, performance and robustness have firmly positioned ANSA ⁄ META as the leading CAE pre- and post-processing technology in the Industry for over a decade.
