Faurecia selects Vistagy SDE software

Seat Design Environment to improve automotive interiors

By CBR Staff Writer

US-based Vistagy has announced that Faurecia, a French automotive equipment supplier, has selected the company’s Seat Design Environment for use in its engineering operations in the US as well as northern and southern Europe.

According to Vistagy, while the initial purchase of Seat Design Environment (SDE) will be used to enhance the engineering of seat trim in automotive interiors, the companies plan to work together to improve software applications and related engineering methodologies for designing and manufacturing foam, seat assemblies and entire automotive interiors.

Thilo Ludewig, vice president of R&D for the seating product group at Faurecia, said: We’re in a highly competitive market that demands that we get new seat designs to market faster than ever before. In the short term, Vistagy’s role as an industry leader in seat trim tools and the compelling attributes of SDE will enable us to increase the efficiency and control of our engineering and prototyping processes. In the longer term, the co-operative planning and development of future SDE-related functionality will provide us with a significant competitive advantage.

Ed Bernardon, vice president of new business development at Vistagy, said: We’re pleased to be working and partnering with one of the world’s leading automotive suppliers to help them enhance their seat trim processes. The key to making design and manufacturing engineering more efficient is creating specialized environments that are made specifically to deal with the rigors of the seat trim environment.
