The fastest, easiest way to tailor your simulation workflows

Configuring simulation applications to fit your engineering workflows is complex and time-consuming. ACT simplifies this process so you can focus more on engineering your products than on customizing software. With ACT you can create apps to automate your routine workflows, customize specialized processes, develop business-specific applications, and integrate third-party tools and data with the ANSYS product line.

ACT uses easy-to-learn yet powerful XML and IronPython programming languages that enable even non-expert users to create custom apps for their advanced workflows — in days instead of the weeks or months usually required. Unlike typical software programming, you do not require any commercial Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for ACT. Instead, ANSYS provides an easy and intuitive development environment with complete documentation, templates and predefined applications to guide you through the process.

ACT’s simple App creation tools and intuitive APIs capture the best practices of expert engineering analysts to reduce training and implementation costs and enable a broader range of engineers and designers to effectively use simulation tools. ACT fosters development of a unified simulation workflow that integrates all ANSYS technologies and other engineering tools and data to maximize the productivity of engineering teams. Streamlined simulation workflows result in faster and better decisions throughout the entire product life cycle, from concept to product use.
