Simulation Process Integration and Automation

Manage all the logical steps in your engineering process from a single automated simulation workflow, also executable via a web interface.

Process-integration-technology

Complex engineering problems often include the use of a myriad of in-house and third-party CAD, CAE and general use software, resulting in a disconnected, difficult-to-manage process.
Also, performing separately parametric modeling and simulation analysis may become a time-consuming practice, leading to delays in the product development.

With our powerful simulation workflow, you can automate any kind of simulation model. This means integrating with any parametric solvers and specify in one click which parameters, constraints and objectives are required to generate innovative design solutions faster.

Automate, integrate and drive multiple CAD/CAE tools

Integration-save-time

Save time

Automatically run repetitive simulations and avoid the painstaking process of manually combining the output from multiple applications. You can expect to improve the design performance by evaluating thousands of designs simultaneously.

Integration-increase-efficiency

Increase process efficiency

Seamlessly integrate the most popular third-party engineering solvers into a unique, automated simulation workflow. Explore our continuously up-to-date list of more than 40 interfaces.

Integration-flexibility

Benefit from maximum flexibility

Rely on our EasyDriver guidance to easily integrate any additional commercial or in-house solver by developing custom, easy reusable nodes.

Work in a standard-based and open environment

Using multiple tools is often necessary when dealing with complex engineering problems that could involve separate teams and disciplines.

In this context, the opportunity to rely on shareable processes and models is essential, and standards are key to make people and tools communicate.

Our software platform supports the Functional Mock-up Interface standard to exchange simulation models. You can export Response Surface Models as Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs) and also import FMUs exported from third-parties applications in the simulation workflow.

Functional Mock-up-Units-33

Connect with any parametric tools (and more)

Our technology offers a variety of interfaces to couple with the most popular engineering solvers. Direct interfaces seamlessly connect with your simulation models, extract relevant parameters and allow you to select your process input and output in few clicks.

Tailored for your company needs

Enterprise-card-icon

Enterprise

If you look at making simulation models accessible and actionable via web, VOLTA enterprise platform gives you the opportunity to scale up the usage of our automated simulation workflow across different teams. This means that domain experts (aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, structures - to name a few) can define parametric simulation models and make them available to others (such as simulation experts, method developers, CAE engineers, and so on). Such models are all integrated in a multidisciplinary workflow ready to be executed via VOLTA web interface. At a next step, other engineers can perform design exploration and optimization studies without dealing with the workflow configuration.

Teams-card-icon

Teams

When you need to focus on a single discipline simulation or MDO (Multidisciplinary Design Optimization) study to solve an engineering problem, you can rely on our modeFRONTIER desktop solution. Its process integration and automation capabilities enable you to describe processes involving different physics in the form of graphical workflows, integrate all the software tools required and run efficient workflows for design exploration and optimization campaigns.
