modeFRONTIER

The innovative integration platform for multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization

modeFRONTIER is an integration platform for multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization. It provides a seamless coupling with third party engineering tools, enables the automation of the design simulation process, and facilitates analytic decision making.

In today’s business world, multidisciplinary approach is key for a successful design process. Designers are required to simultaneously consider multiple perspectives to determine the global optimal solution, facing an ever increasing problem complexity. With modeFRONTIER, the process is streamlined combining objectives relating to variables of different disciplines.

The powerful workflow enable the execution of complex chains of design optimization, innovative algorithms determine the set of best possible solutions combining opposing objectives, and post-processing tools allows the user to perform sophisticated statistical analysis, data visualization and decision making.

The user profiles enable multidisciplinary engineering practices to consolidate specialized expertise and streamline teamwork by allocating software resources where needed. Depending on the step of the engineering problem at hand, it is possible to access different functionalities within the same installation through dedicated modules (modeSPACE and modePROCESS) or directly in modeFRONTIER, according to the profile of the user.
