ANSYS DesignXplorer leverages the power of ANSYS Workbench for parametric analyses. ANSYS Workbench makes it easy to create and manage parameters across a wide range of ANSYS products, has a persistent setup, and makes automatic updates. ANSYS DesignXplorer takes advantage of these Workbench strengths; it enables you to explore, understand and optimize your design so you can apply simulation to drive product development.
You can add DesignXplorer’s systems (direct optimization, parameters correlation, response surface, response surface optimization or six sigma analysis) to the Workbench schematic with drag-and-drop simplicity. Response surface systems are equipped with a variety of design of experiment (DOE) algorithms to efficiently and scientifically factor the design space before applying state-of-the-art response surface technology to accurately interpolate the results. Multi- and single-objective optimization algorithms can use the multi-dimensional response surface to quickly find the optimal design. Direct optimization is available, along with adaptive optimization algorithms that combine the best features of response and direct optimization. You can use our design exploration tools to calculate correlation and sensitivity as well as a host of other insightful metrics. The software outputs charts that increase your understanding of your design space. Six sigma analysis uses information about the statistical distribution of your input parameters to ensure that your design is robust.
We developed the ANSYS Workbench environment as a central platform in support of Simulation-Driven Product Development™. As part of that vision, we created DesignXplorer to leverage the power of Workbench for parametric analyses. Workbench makes it easy to create and manage parameters, setup is persistent, and updates are automatic
You can add ANSYS DesignXplorer’s systems (goal-driven optimization, parameters correlation, response surface and Six Sigma analysis) to the Workbench schematic with drag-and-drop simplicity. The remote solve manager (RSM) allows for distributed solve of design points.
ANSYS DesignXplorer leverages these and other ANSYS strengths to help you truly understand your design — and so that you can apply simulation to drive product development.
