Concept to Optimization with Upfront Simulation

Do you wish you had a way to build and test your ideas virtually before investing in physical prototypes? An easy, accurate method that accelerates design timelines and reduces costs?

We all have ideas. Product designers strive to come up with ideas for innovative products. In the modern era, most products are not simple and must fulfill multiple functions in addition to being cost-effective and stylish. A good idea for a product often means understanding how a thousand smaller ideas work together to create the whole. Unfortunately, it is expensive to physically test every idea or many versions of the best one. Fortunately, upfront simulation helps engineers optimize their product idea before building the first physical prototype. Attend our webinar to see how.


Product engineers everywhere are under pressure to design innovative products faster and cheaper. Simulation can help ideas become innovative products on accelerated timelines and for less cost when compared to traditional methods. Many companies and analysts have been using simulation for a decade or more to great benefit. Design engineer teams and their managers also want to reap the benefits of simulation but traditional interfaces can be daunting for designers and less experienced engineers. People generally have little time to spend learning how to use software before applying it. Upfront simulation is intuitive, easy to use, accurate, and applicable to a wide range of problems. It can be easily integrated into the design process from the time the concept is initiated through final virtual product optimization.

Upfront simulation with ANSYS AIM provides these benefits and more. Built-in workflows guide the user through the easy-to-use, intuitive interface — accessible after watching just 5 minutes of training videos. Integrated geometry modeling based on ANSYS SpaceClaim technology helps design engineers create new concept models using 3-D virtual geometries or to edit or repair existing geometry. Whether a simulation includes electromagnetics, thermal, structures, or fluids or combinations thereof, all aspects of simulation workflow are included in the single-window design, which allows product engineers to predict complete product performance with results you can trust. Customization tools allow upfront simulation to be implemented into your process however you need. This includes custom user interfaces based on company standards that limit options and automate tedious tasks to free-up engineering time and resources. Included optimization tools help engineers zero in on the best concept and make refinements accordingly before finally building.

ansys webinars this weekJoin us for an informative webinar on August 11 at 9 am or 4 pm EDT to discover how up-front simulation with integrated geometry modeling and goal-driven optimization can accelerate your product development process from concept modeling through product optimization and help your engineers use simulation in their daily work.


If you are located in the Central region of the United States or Canada, there are several upcoming opportunities to try ANSYS AIM hands-on in a live seminar the week of August 22 in a local ANSYS office:

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada: 8/23

Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA: 8/24

Evanston, Illinois, USA: 8/24

Bloomington, Minnesota, USA: 8/25

Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA: 8/26

We hope to see you at the webinar or one of these events soon.
