Simulation Process and Data Management Made Easier

In 2021 R2, Ansys Minerva, powered by Aras, enhances collaboration with custom dashboards that communicate relevant information efficiently among teams and ships a host of rich user interface enhancements, greatly improving engineering productivity.

With enhanced integration between Ansys optiSLang and Minerva, democratization of simulation automation is just a few clicks away, enabling experts and nonexperts to reap the benefits of simulation.

Customize with Query Builder

The new Query Builder enables you to easily query and collect information stored in Minerva.

Starting from a specific object type, you can select its properties to rearrange, group, format and then filter them to create a dataset containing the results you’re expecting. You can reuse these results as input data for widgets in the new Dashboards.

Dashboards Provide Quick Access to Data

In Ansys Minerva 2021R2, the Dashboards have been completely revamped to provide a new user experience.

With Dashboards 2.0, create role-based dashboards using the different widget types, such as the Folder Widget, Markdown/Html Widget, My Assignments, KPI, and others. The Report Widget enables you to reuse Queries created with the Query Builder, and display rich information using advanced options for charting, pivot mode and many more.
