What's New

With the 2024 R2 Release, Ansys Minerva provides a powerful capability for streamlining simulation workflows, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of results and addressing complex engineering challenges more effectively.

2024 R2 Minerva
Simulation Parameter Management, Verification Plans, and Reporting

Ensure the accuracy and reliability of simulation results and confirm that simulations meet predefined standards and criteria. Provide a common reference point for simulation data, criteria, and results and help identify issues earlier in the workflow.

2024 R2 Minerva
Performance Enhancements to Simulation Data Uploads & Downloads using Ansys Minerva Generic Connector

Enhanced upload and download performance for simulation data using Ansys Minerva generic connector. Version-controlled folders using the newly introduced model classification can help manage the folder structure and critical revision history.

2024 R2 Minerva
Integration with ModelCenter and Systems Tool Kit (STK)

Ansys Minerva works with ModelCenter and STK to streamline engineering simulation workflows by integrating data management, simulation tools, and optimization capabilities.


Ansys Minerva closes the gaps in your digital thread

Ansys Minerva is a one-stop enterprise-level simulation process and data management solution for collaborative workflows that offers native interoperability with all popular CAD and CAE tools, as well as PLM systems. It allows multiple users to view and use shared files, define work requests and even provides simulation  project management capabilities. Ansys Minerva can configure, launch and manage data flow from any common local application, enabling each team member to use the programs and workflows they’re comfortable with and still collaborate effectively with other team members. Automatic data extraction ensures traceability and built-in messaging takes the guesswork out of collaboration.


Key Features

Enterprise SPDM software with everything you need to improve productivity and make informed decisions about product development.

The easy-to-use data management interface allows you to efficiently manage the rich data produced by your simulation activities. With Ansys Minerva, you will be able to visualize and keep track of all your simulation data by leveraging state-of-the-art Configuration Management capabilities such as Version control and Lifecycles, Release Management, Branching, Workflows, Comparisons and Digital Thread Graphs, all of which are entirely configurable to fit your specific business needs.

Quickly glean insights that can guide your organizational decision-making, thanks to configurable, role-based Dashboards that provide the status of work-in-progress, key metrics, assignments and much more. Organize your engineering activities with unique capabilities like Tasks, Work Requests and Projects; ease collaboration across teams with Notification and Discussions, and provide stakeholders with a clear vision of inputs and outputs so everyone stays up to date.

With Ansys Minerva, you can save time and effort by submitting jobs to high-performance computing (HPC) on-premises or Cloud resources, monitoring their progress remotely and automating data collection back to the system. Ansys Minerva is configurable with standard schedulers and supports hybrid deployment on-premises and in the cloud. Continue to use your preferred applications and let Ansys Minerva manage the data flow and the traceability for you.

Product teams rely on real-time information to stay aware of the current state of their projects and effectively prioritize their work. Positioned at the center of the engineering process, the project manager must estimate, inspect, and monitor progress. Similarly, engineers work to achieve assigned milestones and keep projects moving on-time and on-budget. As the volume of complex projects continually expands, the management of simulation projects becomes a major challenge, with higher incurred cost.

Ansys Minerva takes the guesswork out of project management. By bringing all projects into one view, project managers can seamlessly re-prioritize tasks and adapt to changes in real time. Extraneous meetings and email communications are eliminated, granting work teams additional productive time, and greatly reducing the risk of duplicated efforts, missed deadlines, and team frustration. Project managers and engineers can work together smarter and deliver the next big innovation.

Ansys Minerva facilitates building web apps to capture automated processes and deploy specific simulation apps across an organization. Simulation experts can create and upload simulation automations to Ansys Minerva. Tool engineers and admins can use Minerva to convert these automations into apps, which can in turn be used by anyone who has permission within the organization. 

Access and use your simulation-ready materials property data from GRANTA MI when working within Ansys Minerva projects. GRANTA MI is the platform that enables you to capture, process and approve your company's material information, creating a single 'gold source' for your design engineers and simulation analysts.
