From CRC Wiki

General Description

Altair Engineering's HyperWorks is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software platform that allows businesses to create superior, market-leading products efficiently and cost effectively. HyperWorks accomplishes this in two significant ways:

* A flexible software licensing model that replaces expensive traditional licensing plans with 
  a pay-per-use system. Employees across organizational and geographic boundaries will be able to access 
  simultaneously not only the HyperWorks suite, but also a broad range of complementary third-party 
  programs and other Altair products at no extra cost. 
* Simulation-driven design technologies that enables achievement of performance, timing, and cost 
  targets through rapid, low-cost, virtual exploration that accelerates informed decision making 
  throughout the product life cycle.
