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.

EnginSoft Newsletter: special issue on modeFRONTIER

A special edition highlights how modeFRONTIER has impacted many industries: indeed you will be amazed by how many familiar everyday products have benefitted from this approach.

For many industries today, engineering simulation is the most powerful tool used in product development. It is unparalleled in the speed in which designs can be understood and each design requirement met. This fact is no longer in doubt. Slow and high cost developmental testing has in the large part been replaced by simulation.
However, why stop there? Is there an even better method? What is the current ‘game changer’ in engineering?
These questions are answered by a tool that allows the engineer to standing back from the problem, explore the whole design space through appropriate data mining tools, while an automated process considers all the relationships between each design variable and drives the design towards its optimum. This tool is modeFRONTIER.
A special edition of the Newsletter, dedicated to modeFRONTIER, highlights how it has impacted many industries in the way they do their design and development; indeed you will be amazed by how many familiar everyday products have benefitted from this approach and are featured in this edition – please enjoy and become part of the growing community of business leaders that are reaping the rewards in an increasingly competitive world market.
You fill find in this issue applications of modeFRONTIER popular companies as: FIAT, VOLVO, IVECO, Honda, Ansaldo Breda, Cira, Indesit, Ariston, Sulzer Pumps, ABB…
