Software Delivers Capabilities for Improved Efficiency, Accuracy, Speed in Product Development

ANSYS has launched the newest release of its engineering simulation technology suite, ANSYS® 14.0. Designed to optimize product development processes, ANSYS solutions reduce the time and cost needed to foster product innovations.

The advanced technology behind ANSYS 14.0 includes hundreds of new, advanced features that make it easier, faster and less costly for organizations to bring new products to market. The framework for the industry’s broadest and deepest suite of advanced engineering simulation technology, ANSYS Workbench™, delivers unprecedented productivity. Tighter integration, for example, brings more physics applications together to power customers’ simulation efforts, enabling them to predict with confidence that their products will thrive in the real world.

As a whole, ANSYS 14.0 delivers new benefits in three major areas:

Amplifying engineering: Companies are looking for ways to leverage their existing engineering resources. Engineers are most effective when they concentrate on making engineering decisions rather than performing manual and tedious software operations. ANSYS 14.0 automates many user-intensive operations, which helps product developers minimize time spent setting up problems.

Simulating complex systems: Today’s products come with built-in complexity — such as state changes, nonlinear phenomena and multiphysics interactions. Designs often combine hardware, electronics and software to form a complex system. This requires new approaches to engineering. The latest ANSYS release allows engineers to simulate such complexity as it exists in the real world, from a single component to entire systems, with uncompromising accuracy.

Driving innovation with high-performance computing (HPC): Competitive pressures demand faster and more frequent product introductions; at the same time, products must be innovative, desirable and high quality. Organizations can resolve these conflicting requirements only by evaluating a large number of design alternatives — more rapidly than ever before. ANSYS 14.0 capitalizes on modern hardware advancements to deliver complex simulation calculations faster than other alternatives on the market today.

"Simulation-Driven Product Development™ has been a core theme of ours for some time. Using simulation, companies can analyze many design iterations early in the process, thus driving innovation. HPC is a key enabler to reduce design cycle times,” said Jim Cashman, president and CEO of ANSYS.
