Altair Engineering has officially released Mindmanager, a visual information mapping software tool from Mindjet, through the Hyperworks Partner Alliance (HWPA).

Hyperworks customers, using their previously acquired Hyperworks Units, will gain access to Version 9.0 of Mindmanager through the Hyperworks Units-based licensing mechanism.

Mindmanager’s benefits are said to synch well with Altair’s user base requirements.

Mindmanager enables users to organise, implement, track and complete projects by displaying ideas and information in an understandable, editable visual layout.

Ken Hirschman, Mindjet vice-president of business development, said: ‘Mindjet provides essential productivity software that visually manages complex information, enabling more efficient requirements gathering and validation, project planning and process improvement for Altair’s customers, ultimately leading to better decision making.

‘The Hyperworks licensing model is an attractive system that allows Altair’s customers to leverage Mindjet’s capabilities while paying only for actual use,’ he added.

The HWPA enables users to flexibly access software such as Mindmanager on demand by utilising their previously acquired Hyperworks Units, maximising the value of their investments.

Mindmanager’s visual information maps start with a central theme and then add branches with ideas, notes, images, tasks, hyperlinks and attachments.

Users can import from or export to a variety of applications, including Microsoft Office.

‘This technology offers our customers a powerful solution for streamlining, organising and visualising data and processes in the engineering arena and beyond,’ said Antoine Poussier, director of global partner programs at Altair Engineering.

Mindjet’s flagship software, Mindmanager, is the latest addition to the growing portfolio of software applications available through the HWPA.

These applications cover a variety of domains, including CFD, durability, NVH, impact analysis and injection moulding simulation.
