The product development services division from Altair ProductDesign has received a 2016 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognise suppliers who have achieved superior performance.
To qualify for the award, Altair maintained a silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from 1st October 2015, to 30th September 2016.
Altair has received this award for outstanding achievement for the fourth year in a row and for the fifth time in the last seven years.
“Altair ProductDesign is honoured to receive this award for a fifth time”, said Mak Gilbert, Programme Manager at Altair ProductDesign. “We truly value Boeing’s appreciation and recognition of the consistently smart, hard work our engineers conduct daily to support their design of lightweight, high performing aircraft,” he added.
The Altair ProductDesign approach to aerospace design includes an aggressive application of simulation technologies upfront in the development process.
This 'Simulation Driven Innovation' philosophy allows the company to find the optimal balance between weight, performance and cost for products being developed and results in a programme with reduced risk and shorter cycle times to deliver an aircraft, helicopter or spacecraft that meets functional attributes and mass targets on time.
Brett Chouinard, Chief Operating Officer, Altair commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen once again by Boeing. We strive to help Boeing produce great products that are engineered for performance, efficiency, and safety. This award is an outstanding recognition of the exceptional Altair engineers that support Boeing engineering goals and objectives.”
