ANSYS DesignXplorer is an integrated Workbench application that leverages the persistent and automated power of ANSYS Workbench for parametric analyses. 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 (parameters correlation, direct optimization, 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 sample the design space before applying state-of-the-art response surface technology to accurately model the design space. Single- and multi-objective optimization algorithms can use the multi-dimensional response surface to quickly find the optimal design. Advanced direct optimization is also available, along with adaptive optimization algorithms that combine the best features of response-surface and direct optimization. Design exploration tools calculate correlation and sensitivity as well as a host of other insightful metrics. Six Sigma analysis uses information about the statistical distribution of your input parameters to ensure that your design is robust.
If you have already set up your project in ANSYS Workbench, ANSYS DesignXplorer can take you from solving a single design point to really understanding your design space.
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, with persistent setup and automatic updates.
You can add ANSYS DesignXplorer's systems (goal-driven optimization, parameter correlation, response surface and Six Sigma analysis) to your Workbench project with drag-and-drop simplicity. The remote solve manager (RSM) allows for distributed and simultaneous solution of design points. The whole process is made more affordable with HPC Parametric Pack licensing.
ANSYS DesignXplorer leverages these and other ANSYS strengths to help you truly understand your design, so that you can apply simulation to drive product development.
