Multidisciplinary Analysis and Optimization

Process Integration

OptiY® is an open and multidisciplinary design environment, which provides generic and direct interfaces to many commercial CAD/CAE-systems or in-house codes. The integration of any system into an arbitrary process chain is very easy by the graphical workflow editor. Collaborating different simulation model classes is possible as networks, finite-element-method, multi-body-system and material test bench as control optimization for drives etc.

Process Workflow

The multidisciplinary simulation and optimization process is presented as a graphical workflow by the Workflow-Editor. Predefined nodes can be inserted and edited using drag & drop with the mouse. Assigning to extern simulation programs is very simple. In a project, a customized multi-experiment is possible using the comfortable Script-Editor. The parameters and results of different experiments can be coupled and exchanged using its COM-interface. Within, conditional loops of experiments are programmable.

User Integration

User-Nodes with predefined templates using internal and external scripting engines are available in OptiY. Within, user can self-integrate extern CAD/CAE-programs for ease of use. The programming languages are Visual Basic, C# or others implemented in external scripting engine. It bases on the powerful .NET Framework® technology. User can access to a large number of the .NET-libraries. The communication to OptiY is realized by its COM-interface. The free and comfortable development environment "Visual Studio Express Edition" from Microsoft® can be used for this self-integration process.
