Henley-in-Arden, UK – 27 March 2014 – Lanner, a provider of simulation software proven to maximise performance and optimise resources, today announced that its partnership with China-based reseller, Hi-Key Tech, is going from strength to strength following a new contract win with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China. The deal for Lanner’s WITNESS simulation software will enable the aerospace organisation to plan changes to their manufacturing processes that will allow them to increase production, ensure delivery quality and optimise manufacturing productivity. “WITNESS was chosen as the simulation tool for our project, mainly due to its versatility, not only for the assembly line design but also for logistics processes and supply chain simulation,” comments the project leader at the Aviation Industry Corporation of China. “WITNESS has been successfully applied throughout the aerospace industry around the world. This is an important factor for us since we required an industry proven tool.

Lanner’s partner in the region, Hi-Key Tech, advises on international advanced technologies for CAE, noise analysis, fluid dynamics and simulation, grasping the changes required by the manufacturing industry across China. Hi-Key was instrumental in securing the deal, offering onsite support and training for the aerospace company. “China's manufacturing industry has undergone a real transformation,” comments Yongjun Wang, General Manager at Hi-Key. “Whereas success was once based on low labour costs and technological advances, its profitability is now closely aligned to the optimisation of manufacturing and supply chain processes.

As such, predictive simulation platforms such as WITNESS from Lanner are becoming increasingly recognised as solutions for reducing risk, improve productivity and increase profitability in the quest to achieve international competitiveness.” “China is a key region for us and with a large manufacturing base, WITNESS has the propensity to help growing organisations invest in the right areas – a crucial competitive advantage in a fast growing, aggressive market,” comments David Jones, CEO, Lanner. “We are delighted to be working with Hi-Key and this recent signing is testament to the world-class reputation of WITNESS, shared values across our organisations, and a drive to achieve growth in the region.”
