From nasa to the commercial market

It’s 1963, and NASA professors McNeal and Schwendler want to test satellites. A costly, infeasible endeavor, so they decide to write a computer program to conduct virtual tests. Shortly afterwards, MSC software is born. Fast forward to a few years later: companies widely start using this ingenious simulation software – which has now been adapted to fit the needs of the commercial market – as it saves them a great amount of time and money.

Today, nearly every business in the moving industry that works with a physical product uses simulation software. From automotive to high-tech and 3D printer manufacturers: they all want to predict the circumstances under which their product may break. Moreover, they are looking for ways to make it safer and less expensive by removing or replacing materials.

MSC has over 1,200 highly-skilled professionals in 20 countries. Its strong brand and reputation in industries such as automotive, aerospace and electronics spans more than 50 years.

names not Numbers – the in summa innovation personal approach

Predicting a product’s behavior, saving cost by removing superfluous materials, completing all required steps in the R&D process, and eliminating risk: that is what In Summa Innovation does for its customers, both through simulation software and services.

In Summa Innovation does not believe in one-size-fits-all solutions and attaches great value to a personal approach. You will notice this as soon as you contact us. We will never treat you like a number. Instead, we will start a one-on-one search for a solution that fits your needs. Our engineers can visit you on location and provide Engineering service, or custom-made support & training programmes, whatever you require.

You will always be dealing with a tangible and reliable team. We understand if you are reluctant to describe any business issues in an email to someone you have never spoken to. Therefore, In Summa Innovation engages in real conversations with you – to discover and develop together in partnership with your engineering team.

Once  your engineers have the right tools, & support they can start innovating – hence our name, In Summa Innovation. Our small, committed, highly experienced team offers companies high-quality MSC software in two ways:

  • Simulation software
    Businesses use our MSC software for their product simulation purposes.
  • Services
    Companies hire our engineers for a variety of solutions, such as project assistance, benchmarking, or on-location training courses.
