About ANSYS, Inc.

Today's business environment is rife with competitive challenges, customer requirements and financial pressures. This combination of factors has resulted in the need to find new methods for engineering more innovative products and manufacturing processes while minimizing costs and time to market. Virtually every industry now recognizes that a key strategy for success is to incorporate computer-based engineering simulation early in the development process, allowing engineers to refine and validate designs at a stage where the cost of making changes is minimal.

At ANSYS, we bring clarity and insight to customers' most complex design challenges through fast, accurate and reliable simulation. Our technology enables organizations  to predict with confidence that their products will thrive in the real world. They trust our software to help ensure product integrity and drive business success through innovation.

Every product is a promise to live up to and surpass expectations. By simulating early and often with ANSYS software, our customers become faster, more cost-effective and more innovative, realizing their own product promises.

Who We Are Who We Are

Founded in 1970, ANSYS employs about 2,600 professionals, and many of them are engineers expert in fields such as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics and electromagnetics, and design optimization. Our staff includes more master’s and Ph.D.-level engineers than any other simulation provider. 

ANSYS is passionate about pushing the limits of world-class technology, all so our customers can turn their design concepts into successful, innovative products. 

The company has been recognized as one of the world's most innovative and fastest -growing companies by prestigious organizations including BusinessWeek and FORTUNE magazines. 

Over the years, our steady growth and financial strength reflect our commitment to
innovation and R&D. We reinvest 15 percent of our revenues each year into research to continually refine our software. We are listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

What We Do What We Do

ANSYS develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software used to foresee how product designs will behave and how manufacturing processes will operate in real-world environments. We continually advance simulation solutions by, first, developing or acquiring the very best technology; then integrating it into a unified and customizable simulation platform that allows engineers to efficiently perform complex simulations involving the interaction of multiple physics; and, finally, providing system services to manage simulation processes and data — all so engineers and product developers can spend more time designing and improving products and less time using software and searching for data.

Engineering simulation is our sole focus. For more than 40 years, we have consistently advanced this technology to meet evolving customer needs. 


Our Customers Our Customers

More than 40,000 customers around the world use ANSYS software. These include 96 of the top 100 industrial companies on the FORTUNE 500 list. Our customers represent a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy, materials and chemical processing, turbomachinery, academia, civil engineering, consumer products, healthcare, sports, and others. 

What customers are doing with our technology is impressive: alternative engines for cars, new composite materials with amazing properties, energy-efficient buildings that reduce the carbon footprint, and innovative household appliances with features that go beyond mere improvement, to name just a few.


Where We Are Where We Are

Since its founding decades ago, ANSYS has evolved from a single office that housed a small group of engineers to an international corporation with offices on three continents. 

ANSYS is headquartered in the United States, south of Pittsburgh in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. We have more than 60 strategic sales locations throughout the world. In addition, ANSYS enlists a network of channel partners in more than 40 countries. Together the company fosters close partnerships with customers and provides local value-added service and support.

Simulation-Driven Product Development Simulation-Driven Product Development

The ANSYS suite spans the entire range of physics, so customers can confidently assess how their designs will behave in a real-world environment — helping to ensure product success at the same time. Our software not only delivers efficiency, it drives innovation. The technology reduces or eliminates physical constraints, enabling simulated tests that might otherwise not be possible. It fosters what-if thinking so engineers can readily explore design alternatives for an optimal solution. We call this process Simulation-Driven Product Development.

Why are so many innovative companies choosing to partner with ANSYS? The answer is the ANSYS Advantages, which set our engineering simulation software apart from other CAE tools. Together, these principles help ensure that our portfolio adds value to the engineering design process, rather than a solution that only partially solves problems.

We extend functionality by partnering with independent software vendors, including computer-aided design (CAD) and product lifecycle management (PLM) developers as well as niche organizations that range from physics (such as acoustics) to optimization to materials data. 

Finally, we partner with key hardware vendors to ensure you can get the most accurate solution in the fastest amount of time. The collaboration helps customers in all industries navigate the rapidly changing high-performance computing (HPC) landscape.
