Ansys optiSLang Getting Started (Self-paced
Learning Available)

Course Overview

The Getting Started course offers you an introduction to the practical application of CAE-based sensitivity analysis, multidisciplinary optimization and robustness evaluation with optiSLang.

During the training you will be informed about the possibilities of process integration and variation analysis. By means of illustrative examples, sensitivity analyses and different optimization steps as well as their results will be explained and evaluated. Here, the focus is on the user-friendly application and operation of the software.

Prerequisites

  • A technical education is recommended and a background in design optimization is not required.
  • This course is designed for users who have little to no experience with Ansys optiSLang.

Target Audience

Engineers and Designers who want to drive a variation analyses to their CAE processes.

Teaching Method

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A major emphasis is placed on teaching by software demonstration and on the development of a solution to a design challenge from start to finish.
