With many passionate users giving us constructive feedback, we have turned MapleSim into a truly user-driven product. Thanks to users who took the opportunity to interact with the Maplesoft product development team and influence the next generation of modeling and simulation tools, we have a product that is truly outstanding.
Waterloo, Canada (Vocus) December 16, 2008
MapleSim™, the new high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft™, is now available for purchase globally. After months of intense pilot testing and feedback from approximately fifteen hundred organizations spanning 85 countries, MapleSim is now ready for engineers eager to dramatically shorten their product development cycle and provide their companies with a competitive advantage.
With the cutting edge physical modeling techniques in MapleSim, the time and cost spent creating models is drastically reduced. Users can simply create the system diagram on the screen, in the same way they would draw it on paper. The model equations are then generated automatically.
MapleSim applies symbolic preprocessing techniques to these model equations, creating simplified and highly efficient models. Code generated from these simplified models can be exported to real-time and other applications. Because of the symbolic preprocessing, this code runs ten to one hundred times faster for complex models.
MapleSim contains powerful tools for model design and analysis, including dynamic analysis, control design, and optimization. MapleSim even allows users to easily create custom components and live design documentation.
"There's little point in building a skyscraper on a bad foundation, which is why it is so important to me that MapleSim's math engine is the best in the world," said Edward Melcarek, who is the Director of Research and Development at Sono-Dyne Inc. and a pilot user of MapleSim. "The palettes and menu are very well thought out and I especially like the drag and drop modules that can be calibrated at one's preferences. MapleSim is the most user-friendly math modeling software and I can see it becoming a 'must have' tool among engineers, scientists, and designers."
MapleSim brings together the world's most advanced symbolic computing engine and traditional numeric solvers to supercharge the simulation and modeling process. With the Maple™ computation engine at its core to provide the automatic generation of equations, model simplification, and analysis tools, savings in the design process can range from weeks to months.
"It has been exciting to see the significant progress in the development of MapleSim," said Jim Cooper, CEO of Maplesoft. "With many passionate users giving us constructive feedback, we have turned MapleSim into a truly user-driven product. Thanks to users who took the opportunity to interact with the Maplesoft product development team and influence the next generation of modeling and simulation tools, we have a product that is truly outstanding."
