					   Dassault Systemes Announces New Release of
       Isight for Simulation Automation and
        Design Optimization from SIMULIA

 Accelerating Design Exploration with New Parallel Algorithms,
Enhanced Optimization Methods, and a More Affordable Solution
Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the release of Isight 4.5,
the market-leading simulation process automation and design optimization solution from
their SIMULIA brand, as well as the SIMULIA Execution Engine (formerly Fiper) 4.5 for
executing Isight simulation process flows across computing resources.

Isight provides designers, engineers, and researchers with an open system for integrating
design and simulation models, created with various CAD, CAE and other software
applications, to automate the execution of hundreds or even thousands of simulations. It
allows designers to save time and improve designs by optimizing against performance or
cost variables through statistical methods such as Design of Experiments or Design for
Six Sigma.

Several SIMULIA customers presented their successful use of Isight at the 2010 SIMULIA
Customer Conference (SCC), including: Baker Hughes, General Dynamics–Electric Boat,
Halliburton Landmark, INERGY Automotive Systems Research, Pan Asia Technical
Automotive Center, and Rolls-Royce.

In their SCC presentation, engineers from Baker Hughes, a top-tier oilfield services
company, shared their experience in using Isight with Abaqus to optimize downhole
expandable tubulars. “Historically, at least two months of analysis had been required to
ascertain an acceptable geometry,” stated Jeff Williams, project engineer, Baker Hughes
Inc. “With Isight, the development period was reduced to two days.”

Isight 4.5 provides new scalable parallel algorithms for leveraging multicore computing
resources, enhanced approximation and reliability methods to evaluate product
performance across a range of real-world operating variables, improvements to multi-
objective optimization, and data mining which provides deeper insight into performance
attribute tradeoffs.

Users of SIMULIA’s Abaqus Unified FEA will benefit from a new licensing policy that
dramatically reduces the cost for using SIMULIA’s Abaqus Unified FEA in automated
design studies with Isight. Using the combination of these products allows customers to
reduce their Abaqus token usage as much as 60%.
“The new features and enhancements in Isight 4.5 will enable our customers to explore
design options that were previously impossible, due to time and cost constraints,” stated
Steve Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes. “By
leveraging the new parallel algorithm and optimization features in Isight combined with the
distributed computing capabilities of Simulation Execution Engine, our customers will be
able to evaluate more design alternatives in less time, resulting in better products at a
lower cost.”
