Software with Optimization Algorithms and Distributed Analysis

Mon, 10/03/2005 - 9:16am

Ansoft Corporation has released Optimetrics™ v4. Optimetrics works with HFSS™, Ansoft Designer®, Q3D Extractor™ and Maxwell® products to perform parametric studies, statistical/sensitivity analysis and optimization. Version 4 introduces SNLP (Sequential Nonlinear Programming) and SMINLP (Sequential Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programming) optimization algorithms. Applying Response Surface Modeling (RSM) techniques, these complementary methods allow engineers to optimize over a continuous design space and/or to specify discrete steps between instances, respectively. The new discrete step optimization can be configured to ensure that the resulting optimized design is realizable for a given manufacturing process. Additionally, Optimetrics v4 supports a Distributed Analysis option that enables users to concurrently solve parametric variations on separate machines within a network and then automatically reassemble the variations. This methodology allows for greater throughput of previously intractable parametric evaluations.
