In today's rapidly evolving engineering landscape, the ability to efficiently bridge the gap between system-level conceptual design and detailed component design is crucial. This process involves refining multidisciplinary design requirements, validating design iterations through physics-based simulations, and optimizing design parameters to achieve the best trade-offs early in the design cycle. Ansys ModelCenter, integrated with the powerful multiparameter optimization algorithms from Ansys optiSLang, offers a transformative workflow that seamlessly connects these phases, enabling engineers to design cutting-edge solutions while considering cost constraints.
ModelCenter acts as a system integration platform, connecting requirements from a system architecture modeler environment and providing a unified environment for managing and executing simulations from various software tools. ModelCenter's power lies in its ability to automate the simulation and optimization process. Engineers can create workflow templates that connect different tools, pass data between simulations, and perform automated optimization loops. By harnessing the power of ModelCenter, engineers can efficiently orchestrate the entire design process, ensuring consistent results and saving significant time and effort.
Ansys optiSLang is used by a wide range of industries for parametric design exploration, optimization, and robustness analysis in combination with any simulation or computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool. By leveraging these five best-in-class optiSLang optimizers, ModelCenter users can now identify the most optimal design quickly and efficiently. Let’s compare the use cases for each of these algorithms.
