Altair Wins 2016 Boeing Performance Excellence Award

Altair’s product development services division Altair ProductDesign has been awarded a 2016 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. Boeing issues the award annually to recognise suppliers which 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 1 October 2015 to 30 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,” says Mak Gilbert, Program 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.”   

Altair is focused on the development and broad application of simulation technology to synthesise and optimise designs, processes and decisions for improved business performance. Its approach to aerospace design includes an aggressive application of simulation technologies upfront in the development process. The company reports that this 'simulation driven innovation' philosophy allows it 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.
