CADFEM CIS to Offer Engineering Simulation Services to Skolkovo Residents

CADFEM CIS, an engineering simulation software company, has obtained the status of a Skolkovo shared resource center. Aleksey Belyakov, executive director of Skolkovo's nuclear and space technology cluster, and Valery Loktev, CEO of CADFEM CIS, signed today a respective agreement.

CADFEM CIS is a partner of ANSYS, Inc. in Russia and part of CADFEM Group represented in 14 countries. CADFEM is an expert center for all issues concerning numerical analysis based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). The company provides a comprehensive product line of computer-aided engineering (CAE) software and hardware from leading technology suppliers, including ANSYS, SCADE, optiSLang, Rocky-DEM, Flownex, Motor-CAD, nCode, CivilFEM, and virtualCity. The company also provides extensive assistance, ranging from education and training, user support and a complete range of engineering simulation consulting services up to software adaption and process automation.

The Skolkovo and CADFEM agreement assumes that the latter will be providing simulation services in various engineering disciplines, developing customized applications and integrating them with third-party products. 

CADFEM will focus on high-performance computing infrastructures for engineering simulation purposes; hardware and software consulting, tests and maintenance; professional development courses on simulation for designers and engineers; ROI forecasting and optimization for numerical analysis software; ANSYS licensing programs; HPC resource access management and consulting services for Skolkovo residents.

“The shared resource center format lets us scout for service providers needed by the ecosystem,” says Evgeny Lesnikov, director of acceleration at the nuclear and space technology cluster. “The agreement provides our residents with the opportunity to use the services of a professional engineering company that has been on the Russian market for a long time. Some of our residents are already CADFEM customers. We expect that the new status will enable the company to provide even more services to the Skolkovo ecosystem and help the residents reduce time for developing new products.”

The new shared resource center will ensure the transfer of knowledge and help Skolkovo residents and other Russian companies introduce engineering simulations in additive manufacturing, driverless vehicle and 5G network design, as well as in the creation of digital twins, according to Valery Loktev.

“Our joining the Skolkovo ecosystem stems from the fact that engineering simulations widely used in design and manufacturing processes are essential to Industry 4.0. Our twenty years of successful collaborations with Russian and international companies, knowledge of best practices in engineering simulations and Industry 4.0 technologies will enable us to meet the challenges of digital transformation,” says Loktev.
