More than 80 design engineers from leading manufacturing companies and research institutions gathered at the 2012 Optimus World Conference in Munich, Germany. This milestone event offered them great opportunity to share successful optimization projects, and learn about the benefits of process integration and design optimization (PIDO).
Keynote speakers from Optimus customers Snecma, Federal-Mogul and Audi highlighted the role of process integration and design optimization (PIDO) in their development process. Industry presenters showed how they actually apply automated ‘Engineer by Objective’ optimization strategies, covering multiple engineering disciplines, to deliver better products faster.
The projects brought forward showed that this ‘Engineer by Objective’ approach is much more efficient and targeted than traditional simulation-based development efforts – allowing development teams to adopt ‘right-first-time’ design optimization. They confirmed Optimus as a leading PIDO solution for design engineers to gain up-front insight into the product performance that is within reach. Optimus automatically directs virtual prototyping toward those design candidates that deliver benchmark performance, while taking into account all relevant design constraints.
