Hi Ralph,
EFD stands for "Engineering Fluid Dynamics" and Mentor's FloEFD exists already since end of the 90's with integrations also in Catia V5, PTC Creo/ProEngineer and Siemens NX. Back then it was EFD sold by NIKA which was acquired by Flomerics in 2006 and then acquired by Mentor Graphics in 2008. So only the Solid Edge integration is new and they are not trying to do the same as Autodesk, they were doing it already and better than Autodesk. It is not a single button integrated in the CAD system which moves the model into a different system to simulate it like Autodesk Simulation CFD (former CFDesign) did but a fully embedded CFD simulation into the CAD environment. At no point the user will leave the CAD system for the analysis.

Thank you, Anton, for the clarification!
