French 3D software company, Dassault Systèmes, announced last week (April 24) its acquisition of Modelon GmbH.
According to a media statement, Dassault Systèmes' Dymola technology, along with content and help from Modelon GmbH in service projects greatly improved efficiency in making the technology of next-generation electrified cars such as the BMW i3 and i8 or hybrid cars.
Dassault Systèmes has long supported the use of the Modelica modeling language for the complex systems engineering at the core of the company's flagship brand CATIA.
The acquisition of Modelon GmbH marks the company's latest step in reinforcing its commitment to design smart products in the age of experience, following the acquisitions of Geensoft embedded systems development solutions in 2010 and Dynasim's Modelica-based modeling and simulation solutions in 2006.
"As part of Dassault Systèmes, we can expand the reach and impact of our assets to inspire electrified and ecologic product development that will be emblematic of the bright future of experience-based systems engineering," said Johannes Gerl, CEO, Modelon GmbH.
"With our 3DEXPERIENCE platform and strong and growing ecosystem of content partners, we now look to replicate Modelon GmbH's success in other industries such as aerospace, energy, process and utilities, and construction," added Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes.
