PACE Delivers Airbus A350 XWB Configurator

PACE Delivers Airbus A350 XWB Configurator 
New Software Supports Catalog-Based Aircraft Interior Customization
and Full 3D Rendering 
BERLIN -- (Marketwire) -- 03/28/13 --  Aircraft manufacturer Airbus
has introduced a central configuration tool for the A350 XWB program.
The A350 XWB Configurator was developed by Berlin engineering
software provider PACE and is based on the latest version of their
flagship product Pacelab Cabin 7. The tool supports Airbus sales,
marketing and customer engineering teams in creating airline-specific
cabin layouts and aircraft configurations and presenting them in
fully rendered 3D, with realistic representations of the selected
materials and ambient lighting scenarios. 
The A350 XWB Configurator ties in with Airbus's new customization
concept of offering aircraft buyers an extensive catalog of modular
solutions to achieve a significant reduction of lead times. Key
assets in this respect are the software's intuitive, highly visual
user interface, which facilitates the selection of suitable packages
from the catalog; complex compatibility rules, which ensure that only
valid configurations are considered; and real-time visualization,
which makes it easier for the customer to examine the currently
selected options. 
"As the client-facing side of our customization concept, the A350 XWB
Configurator is an important sales and communication tool, which
provides all the information airlines need to make a smart purchasing
decision," explains Francois Caudron, Airbus Head of A350 Customer &
Business Development. "PACE has a proven track record with our
company and we welcome their contribution to the A350 XWB customer
"We are very proud to have received this vote of confidence from
Airbus. We consider their choice a strong validation of our
leadership in the cabin configuration domain and of the long-standing
relationship between our companies," says PACE managing partner
Alexander Schneegans.
