Comet Solutions Provides Software for Automated Driveline Analysis to AAM

CINCINNATI, OH and ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 07, 2014 -- Comet Solutions, Inc., the provider of SimApps™ for simulation driven-design, is excited to announce initial results from the successful implementation of its NVH Driveline SimApp at American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM). In a few months time, AAM has shown productivity gains and cost savings.

Fully Automatic Analysis Process Results in Tremendous Benefits for NVH Engineering
AAM, a leading global Tier-One automotive supplier of driveline and drivetrain systems and related components, has a long history of successfully using FEA to master the many NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) challenges. To enhance their FEA processes, Comet provided AAM with its NVH Driveline SimApp, a new software application that lets customers set up a single environment for driveline NVH analysis, with quick and easy evaluation of any architecture. And to-date, AAM has realized impressive results.

Ora Research has produced an in-depth report detailing how AAM achieved benefits with Comet software in the areas of time savings per analysis iteration, cost savings, and improved quality. According to Bruce Jenkins, Principal Analyst with Ora, "Comet is at the forefront of advances in the arena of design space exploration. The results at AAM validate Comet has something very powerful to offer automotive companies, whether they do drivelines or other automotive systems." The Ora Research paper titled "AAM Sees Dramatic Productivity Gains, Cost Savings from Automating NVH Analysis Process with New Comet NVH Driveline SimApp" is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the Comet Solutions website at

And this is just the start of the cost savings and productivity improvements. Glen Steyer, AAM's Executive Director of Product Engineering, sees great strategic benefit in the Comet SimApps' power to drive simulation to the earliest stages of product development. Steyer explained, "Being a global company, the SimApp lets us take decades' worth of knowledge and expertise, put it into the simulation tool, and forward-deploy that to our engineers around the world. Not only that, but by using a tool like this and forward-deploying it, you can move much more deeply into innovating product architectural dynamics upfront in the design process."

Solidifying Its Commitment To The Automotive Industry
Over the past year, Comet Solutions has been building the company's engineering, marketing, and sales competence in the resilient automotive industry. In mid-2013, the company hired Tim Keer as Vice President of Technical Service and Customer Success. Keer spent 25 years at Arup, the global engineering design firm. He opened Arup's Detroit office, where he led all technical project work for automotive companies, especially in the areas of crash and structural analysis. Comet Solutions has recently announced distribution agreements with JSOL Engineering in Japan and Arup in China. Both partners have decades of experience in the automotive industry and are the largest distributor of LS-DYNA software in their respective geographic markets.

Commented Dan Meyer, Comet Solutions President and CEO, "We have the expertise on our team to understand the challenges and opportunities facing automotive customers. We are in a great position to develop and implement innovative solutions for these customers, as evidenced by our collaboration with AAM. Our company will offer a suite of SimApps focused around the product systems developed by automotive customers and their related simulation workflows."
