Product design and development requires that engineers consider trade-offs between product attributes in the areas of cost, weight, manufacturability, quality, and performance. Engineers are faced with the difficult challenge of determining how to arrive at the best overall design, making the right compromises, and not sacrificing critical attributes like safety.
MSC Software offers a complete set of solutions for optimization, ranging from use of gradient based optimization methods, like sizing, shape and topology optimizations, or calculation of response surfaces, to a broader process management to analyze and optimize designs across multiple disciplines. These solutions can be integrated with third party optimizers as well to provide you solutions that mold to your requirements.
MSC Software is used for many types of design optimizations:
