Impact is a mass property distribution tool developed by Bombardier Aerospace and ACT (Alliance Commercial and Technology). This new tool is a customized solution of the ACT Weight and Balance V3.2 application for CATIA.

The new application includes the basic functionality of the W&B ACT application plus the following:

• Ability analyze all CATIA models loaded in the user work session.
• Cut most of the CATIA elements in a model(s) to extract, center of gravity, and inertia distribution data. The data is then use in the weight data for stress and dynamic analysis report.
• Code each CATIA element to produce a detail weight statement (ref: SAWE recommended practice #8A) with an integrated code table.
• Automatic code attribution for each CATIA element to produce a geographical weight statement.
• User interface to validate data prior to the initiation of the compute process.
• Result of analysis may be appended to an existing file or saved under a new file.
• Output analysis data can be organized in an assembly drawing structure via the validation panel.
• Analysis can be performed through an overnight batch process. Results and error log files are sent by e-mail to the user account.
