Introduction to ANSYS ACT Wizards - (Available as Self-Paced Learning)


ACT allows you to automate the simulation process with the creation of custom guided processes (e.g. wizards). A wizard requires that you decompose your process in steps. Each step will ask the user to define information (inputs). A wizard can include automation of standard capabilities only or a mix of standard and custom capabilities. A wizard developed with ACT is part of an extension. Its implementation remains consistent with any other extensions dealing with custom features. A wizard is exposed in Workbench or in a target application as a “wizard.” A wizard walks non-expert end users step-by-step through a simulation. A wizard can be exposed in various applications at different steps.
