Human Solutions Announces Version 1.4 of RAMSIS in CATIA V5

RAMSIS in CATIA V5: Enhanced integration thanks to CAA V5 Adopter Program

Kaiserslautern, 26. July 2005 – The Human Solutions Company of Kaiserslautern, announces Version 1.4 of RAMSIS in CATIA V5, developed under the CAA V5 Adopter Program.

On the 1st of February 2005, Human Solutions joined the Dassault Systèmes CAA V5 Adopter Program, which expands the openness of the V5 ecosystem to include complementary and integrated V5 PLM applications. As a CAA V5 Adopter, Human Solutions was able to integrate its own RAMSIS software solution more tightly with the CAD standard product CATIA.

Version 1.4 with the first update, which taps the full potential of the new possibilities, has been available since March 2005.

RAMSIS: Integration with CATIA

CATIA (Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application), for collaborative product development, delivers a unique approach in the area of conceptual design and further shrinks the distinction between virtual and real products. CATIA is a professional CAD program originally developed for aircraft construction. It has since established itself as the vehicle construction standard. The interaction of RAMSIS and CATIA has been maturing and proven in actual practice for many years. With the change from Version 4 to Version 5, CATIA manufacturer Dassault Systèmes has, however, modified and advanced the data format. A completely new implementation of RAMSIS was necessary.

RAMSIS in CATIA V5 was originally developed under contract for three German vehicle manufacturers and is available today on Windows, IBM, HP and SUN platforms for all prospective and current customers. RAMSIS in CATIA V5 is compatible with both the stand-alone solution and CATIA V4 - this makes the switch to V5 easier for users.

Roadmap RAMSIS in CATIA V5

Human Solutions thus continues its definitive integration of RAMSIS with customer systems with RAMSIS in CATIA V5. New anthropometric databases for China and the USA (National Health and Nutrition Estimation Survey III) are available. More enhancements can be found in the automated sequence analysis process as well as in the details of other functions of the current Version 1.4. With the May release, maximum force analysis and torso posture are among the features implemented.
