MSC Software develops simulation software technology that enables engineers to validate and optimize their designs using virtual prototypes. Customers in nearly all areas of manufacturing use our software to enrich and, in some cases, even replace the physical prototype “build and test” process that has traditionally been used in product design.

As a trusted partner, MSC Software helps companies improve quality, save time, and minimize costs associated with designing and testing manufactured products. Our products accurately and reliably predict how products will perform on the planet to help engineers design more innovative products, quickly and cost-effectively.

MSC Software technology is used by world leading manufacturers for linear and nonlinear finite element (FEA) analysis, acoustics, fluid-structure interaction (FSI), modern multiphysics, optimization, fatigue and robustness, multi-body motion and monitoring systems. simulation.

MSC pioneered many of the technologies the industry now relies on to study and predict stress and strain, vibration and progress, acoustics, and thermal analysis in our leading product, MSC Nastran.

MSC Software Corporation may be part of Hexagon, a global provider of knowledge technologies that drives productivity and quality in industrialization and geospatial applications.

Hexagon solutions integrate sensors, software, domain knowledge, and customer workflows into intelligent information ecosystems that deliver actionable insights. they are used in a wide range of important industries.

Hexagon (Nasdaq Stockholm: HEXA B) has more than 18,000 employees in 50 countries around the world and profits of approximately € 3.1 billion. Learn more at and follow us at @HexagonAB.

MSC Software Corporation was founded in 1963 under the name MacNeal-Schwendler Corporation (MSC). The company developed its first structural analysis software called SADSAM (Structural Analysis by Digital Simulation of Analog Methods) at that time and was deeply committed to the first actions of the aerospace industry to strengthen finite element analysis technology.

In 1965, NASA awarded MSC the main contract to commercialize Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software called Nastran (NASA Structural Analysis). MSC pioneered many of the CAE technologies now used by the industry to investigate and forecast stress and strain, vibration and dynamics, acoustics, and thermal analysis in our core product, MSC Nastran.

Thanks to our extensive experience, MSC has prepared or acquired many other registered CAE applications, including Patran, Adams, Marc, Dytran, Fatigue, SimXpert, SimDesigner, SimManager, Easy5, Sinda, and Actran. We are committed to the continued development of the latest CAE technology that incorporates competencies and technologies from independent CAE tools into multidisciplinary solvers and united user environments. These "next generation" products allow engineers to improve the reliability and accuracy of their virtual prototypes by including multiphysics and multidisciplinary interactions.

Additionally, MSC is the CAE industry leader in expanding simulation to the engineering business. Our customers recognize the need to measure the benefits of virtual prototyping and testing from specialist pockets to the general engineering and product advancement, and MSC provides the only simulation data and process management platform in the world. A world that has been published effectively in industries such as automotive and aerospace. , shipbuilding, electronics, and more.

Currently, MSC Software has more than 1,300 professionals in 22 countries.
