ESTECO reports that Raytheon Missiles & Defense, a defense contractor, has selected VOLTA as its digital engineering framework for multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) and simulation process and data management (SPDM).

The VOLTA platform is built to lead to a more effective product development approach, where multidisciplinary teams efficiently manage all cross-functional, concurrent design steps by integrating multiple modeling formats and capturing the interactive and incremental innovation process.

VOLTA is aligned to Raytheon’s end-to-end approach to digital transformation.  Server-based, VOLTA will simplify data sharing across the product life cycle in an environment that is secure and approved for classified work, suitable for Raytheon. It will also streamline workflows by integrating internal tools allowing for better collaboration and transparency.  

“Moving MDO from a traditional desktop client to a server-based approach is a paradigm shift,” says Roel Van De Velde, director A&D for ESTECO. “VOLTA’s modern web interface allows for real time collaboration with all stakeholders, both internal and external, having access to the same data at the same time.

“With its tiered access, data can be easily version controlled, shared and re-used across teams or between individuals, and knowledge becomes institutionalized rather than belonging to a few experts, thus democratizing and scaling up MDO to a much larger community,” adds Van De Velde.
