Optimus IN BRIEF

Optimus is the industry-leading Process Integration and Design Optimization (PIDO) software platform, bundling a powerful range of capabilities for Engineering Process Integration, Design Space Exploration, Engineering Optimization and Robustness & Reliability. These PIDO technologies help direct engineering simulations toward design candidates that outsmart competition while taking into account all relevant design constraints - effectively implementing an Objectives Driven Engineering process. Optimus users report design time savings averaging over 30%, while achieving 10% or more design performance improvements.


​A vendor-neutral open platform

As an entirely vendor-neutral PIDO platform, Optimus provides an open architecture to communicate with any engineering software, including the capability to deal with any file syntax. Besides protecting the investments companies have made in legacy codes and models (safeguarding their future use within the organization), Optimus enables them to deploy an ‘Engineer by Objectives’ strategy irrespective of the engineering software that is actually being used.

​Industry-proven technologies

Optimus’ industry-proven, state-of-the-art design space exploration and engineering optimization methods are a critical enabler of a successful Objectives Driven Engineering process deployment. Its methods and technologies have clearly demonstrated the capability to successfully deal with diverse real-world applications – with implementations at various customers sites that include tens of licenses used on a daily basis.

Robust deployment

The robustness of Optimus’ methods is equally important. Highly robust numerical optimization algorithms should not require excessive manual parameter specifications to start the process and perform the job successfully. This is where Optimus really excels. Using Optimus, engineering teams work with robust algorithms and are therefore far more efficient, benefiting from a shorter learning curve.

Effective decision support tools

Optimus’ intuitive and flexible post-processing functions are needed to turn large engineering data sets into information that supports design decisions. Effective decision tools not only make it easier to eliminate non-influential design parameters and identify best design tradeoffs, but will also facilitate communication between engineering teams and management.


​id8 decide multiplies the power of Optimus

Optimus’ power is even multiplied with Noesis Solutions newest product id8 decide. id8 decide easily leverages engineering data from disparate sources, including Optimus, connecting and visualizing any data related to physical or virtual prototyping. It accesses, organizes and processes data and results all from within a web browser, enabling users to build an engineering dashboard by dragging and dropping data widgets onto the dashboard canvas.

Optimus is intensely used to solve real-world engineering challenges
