1.

General Product Information

1.1.

What is Autode
sk Simulation 360?

Autodesk
®



Simulation 360 provides powerful, flexible access to simulation
software de
livered securely in the cloud. It allows customers to r
ealize the full
value of simulation software at an affordable price, and
to solve

complex desig
n
challenges anywhere, anytime. Autodesk Simulation 360 complements design
applications, allowing
for customers to

conduct simulations early and often to
predict and optimize
their
design performance.
In Q2 (June 8


July 24th)
Simulation 360 is available

as a
n

introductory promotional bundle

which includes
perpetual desktop licenses along with Cloud access as the bundle
.

1.2.

What are the benefits of
Autodesk
Simulation

software and services
?


With simulation
-
driven design, designers and engineers can perform
simulations
early in the design process to investigate performance, test innovative concepts,
and optimize designs before the manufacturing or construction process begins.
Using
Autodesk Simulation
solutions
can help you understand the implications of
desi
gn choices as you make them.

1.3.

What are the benefits of Simulation in the cloud
?

With Autodesk Simulation 360, customers can ga
in a competitive advantage and
leverage the power of the cloud to s
olve complex design challenges, innovate
with new ideas, and co
llaborate more effectively.
Autodesk
Simulation 360 allows
customers

to offload computational intensive tasks to the cloud to simulate many
different design configurations in parallel. Anywhere, anytime access means
customers

can run simulations and access

results virtually anywhere allowing
greater work flexibility and better collaboration with partners and
clients
.

The
cloud also enables new business models, with customers no longer needing to
invest in expensive hardware to run simulations and upfront so
ftware
investments are replaced with a pay
-
as
-
you
-
go payment model.

With the Q2
Autodesk
Simulation 360 introductory promotional bundle customers have the
flexibility to
access simulation functionality

on their desktop as well as in the
cloud.

1.4.

What Simulat
ion capabilities come with Simulation 360?

Autodesk Simulation 360 includes the full functionality available with Autodesk
®

Simulation Mechanical and Autodesk
®

Simulation CFD desktop software for
structural mechanics, thermal and fluid flow simulation. Plus Autodesk
®

360
Optimization for Autodesk
®

Inventor
®
, Autodesk
®

360 Energy Analysis for
Autodesk
®

Revit
®
, Autodesk
®

360 Structural Analysis for Autodesk
Revit, and
Autodesk

Availability and Pricing

2.1.

When will Autodesk Simulation 360 be available?

Autodesk Simulation 360 will be available on a
limited basis June 18, 2012.
From June 18
th
, 2012 through July 24
th
, 2012, Autodesk Simulation 360 will only
be available as part of an introductory promotional bundle.

2.2.

In what languages is Simulation 360 available?

The initial June 18, 2012 release wi
ll be available in English only.
Additional
languages
are planned to be released
later
.

2.3.

Where can I purchase Autodesk Simulation 360?

In Q2, Autodesk Simulation 360 is available only as an introductory promotional
bundle
packaged

with perpetual desktop licenses and must be sold together.
This promotional bundle will also be available for VARs to sell.

2.4.

What is the cost of Autodesk Simulation 360?

The Q2 Autodesk Simulation 360 promotional bundle consists of perpetual
licenses of
Autodesk Simulation Mechanical 2013, Autodesk Simulation CFD
Motion 2013 and Autodesk Simulation CFD Design Study Environment 2013
along with
access to
the Cloud versions of these solutions.
Please ask your
Sales Representative or Value Added Reseller abo
ut pricing and how you can
gain access.
The cloud portion of the Q2 Simulation 360 bundle is
for
an
initial
annual
one year
term that includes an allotment of 2,000 Cloud Units

which are
consumed during usage
. Customers who purchase the introductory prom
otional
bundle in Q2 will be provided access to the cloud

portion of the service

for the
remainder of FY13 (Jan 31st, 2013)

without use of Cloud Units

and the
consumption of the
2000 CU’s will start on Feb 1, 2013.

2.5


What is a Cloud Unit?

Cloud Units are allotted with the annual fee of
Autodesk
Simulation 360. Usage
refers to the usage of the products within
Autodesk
Simulation 360, measured in
Cloud Units
.

For each Simulation job that a customer performs

there will be a corresponding
cons
umption of
CUs

to perform that task. A job is defined as meshing and
solving a simulation model for one set of boundary conditions regardless of the
size of the model. The consumption rates v
a
ry based on the type of simulation
as follows:

Mechanical
S
imul
ation = 10 CU per job

CFD (Fluids) Simulation = 20 CU per job

Thus, with the 2,000 CUs allotted, an Autodesk Simulation 360 customer can run
200 Mechanical jobs, 100 CFD jobs, or a combination of the two.

2.5.

Can customers buy more cloud units? What happens if

a customer uses all of
his/her cloud units?

Autodesk is planning to offer the option to purchase additional cloud units in the
future. Until these are available, customers who use all of their allotted cloud

60 services


at no extra cost


until additional cloud units become available for purchase.

2.6.

Are Cloud Units (CU) tied to the actual license or the user? Can I share my
CUs with other users at my company?

Cloud units are assigned (tied) to a given
Subscr
iption
contract. Therefore, if
multiple users have purchased
Autodesk
Simulation

360 access under the same
Subscription
contract, these users can share their pool of Cloud
U
nits.

2.6.

Is the desktop software portion of the Autodesk
Simulation 360
introductory

promotional bundle
available as a standalone and network license?

The desktop portion of the Q2
Autodesk
Simulation 360 introductory promotional
bundle offering is available as
a
Network License Manager
.
