PITTSBURGH—Digital transformation is impacting every industry. Through groundbreaking digital technologies, hardware and software developers can work together in all phases of the product development cycle and shave years off their product timelines.
ANSYS (https://www.ansys.com/) has developed pervasive simulation engineering software that is said to enable digital transformation by speeding customers’ innovations and reducing their time to market. The company has released new functionalities in ANSYS 2019 R2 that are reported to accelerate, streamline, and simplify the product life cycle from ideation to design, manufacturing, and operations.
With the new functionalities, including new materials capabilities for structural analysis following the recent acquisition of Granta, ANSYS’s simulation software makes collaboration, validation, and verification faster while creating a reliable digital thread between all operations, the company said in a press release.
“Design, engineering and manufacturing practices are changing at lightning speed — organizations are leaning on simulation and digitizing their processes to bring cutting-edge products to customers faster than ever,” said Shane Emswiler, vice president and general manager for ANSYS electronics, fluids, and mechanical business units at ANSYS, in a statement. “This release empowers customers to do more with multi-physics simulation in less time. ANSYS 2019 R2 automates simulation while making it easier to use.”
New functionalities are also reported to include a fresh ANSYS® Mechanical™ user experience, simplified simulation of complex electronics, and an ANSYS® Fluent™ workflow that is said to significantly speed meshing of dirty geometries.
