OPTIMUS makes digital prototyping
possible and practical. The OPTIMUS package easily
captures your current simulation processes. It automatically
explores the design space using Design of Experiments
(DOE) and Response Surface Modeling (RSM) techniques,
giving you insight into the variations of a design
and the related 'trade-offs'.
OPTIMUS can link to any simulation
code, including in-house code and little supported
‘legacy’ systems, so the user works faster
and more effectively with existing codes and models.
The need to start again with new and unfamiliar tools
can be avoided: earlier investments in design analysis
systems can be re-used.
A key feature is the multi-disciplinary
nature of the process: the results of a whole range
of performance simulation tools, and even non-physical
analyses such as cost estimation, can be used to define
the business objectives.
Application areas include mechanical,
structural and fluid dynamics and thermal and other
design attributes in the automotive, aerospace and
marine industries; electronic components, medical
and domestic products and consumer goods; civil engineering
and energy; resource management and business planning.
