SANTA ANA, Calif., - January 26, 2009 - MSC.Software (NASDAQ: MSCS), a leading global provider of enterprise simulation solutions, including simulation software and services, announced today that it has been selected by EADS as major partner for Virtual Product Development (VPD) solutions across all EADS business divisions as part of the EADS PHENIX initiative. PHENIX is an EADS group-wide strategic initiative launched in 2007 to achieve harmonization and standardization of enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) methods, processes and tools across business units. A new partnership agreement was signed between Jean Botti, the EADS Chief Technical Officer and Bill Weyand the MSC.Software CEO on December 18th, 2008.

MSC.Software is becoming major provider for mechanical simulation and key partner to prepare multidisciplinary solutions for future virtual product development. It is an important milestone for the EADS cross-divisional PHENIX program and globally for harmonization of PLM methods, processes and tools between the operational units,” said Jean –Yves Mondon, Head of the PHENIX program at EADS.
