seam software Software
Cambridge Collaborative, Inc. develops and sells high-quality software products for noise and vibration design and prediction. Our mission as an engineering research and development company is to provide our customers with the best noise and vibration prediction technology available. We constantly strive to improve our software products by researching and developing new techniques and by increasing the accuracy of our prediction tools through analysis and comparison with test data.

Acoustic design plays an ever increasing role in the success of new products. Consumers are demanding quieter products. Inappropriate noise and vibration are often associated with poor product quality. The use of Cambridge Collaborative's SEAM software allows engineers and designers to identify and solve noise and vibration problems early in the design cycle, when it is still possible to make inexpensive design changes.

Since 1975, Cambridge Collaborative has played the leading role in introducing statistical energy analysis (SEA) to industry. We recognize that SEA is an evolving technology and dedicate a significant percent of our software budget to developing and improving the SEA technology embedded in our SEAM product. We also recognize the importance of productivity and visualization tools in enabling engineers to make efficient, accurate predictions and to clearly present their predictions to customers or management. Our mission as a commercial software provider is to develop software tools that help both novice and experienced engineers do their jobs better.

In 2019, Cambridge Collaborative sold SEAM software to long time partner, Altair Engineering. The addition of SEAM [(R)] software to Altair's portfolio of simulation and solver solutions creates a more expansive, comprehensive portfolio for solving tough engineering problems.

SEAM [(R)] software will fall under the Altair HyperWorks(TM) platform and will be integrated with other Altair technologies like NVH Director and OptiStruct for noise and vibration analysis, and UltraFluidX to simulate noise with external aerodynamics studies.

Cambridge Collaborative continues to closely support Altair providing SEAM support, development and training.

Cambridge Collaborative continues to provide training courses on statistical energy analysis (SEA) and on the use of Altair's SEAM products for specific applications.
