Optimus orchestrates parametric simulation campaigns involving Altair OptiStruct, freeing users from repetitive manual model changes and data processing. Using Optimus’ Design of Experiments (DOE), Response Surface Modeling (RSM) and Numerical Optimization methods, engineering teams quickly identify product designs that meet a combination of objectives set by multiple (often competing) performance targets. At the same time, design constraints imposed by manufacturing realities or stringent regulatory and standardization requirements are consistently considered.
Optimus automatically modifies the Altair OptiStruct design parameters, updates the underlying models, and extracts the result outputs (scalar and vectors) in an automated simulation or optimization process. Built on Optimus’ User Customizable Interface (UCI) wrapper technology, the Optimus interface for Altair OptiStruct allows to access all advanced parameters and versions of Altair OptiStruct without any configuration programming - enabling the parameterization and workflow integration of any Altair OptiStruct model with just a few clicks.
