Exa’s Optimization Solution Brings Automation to Vehicle Design Video

Automotive Industry Video 

Exa’s optimization solution is a statistical response surface-based approach. Through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) using PowerFLOW and then we create a response surface from those simulations and do a statistical analysis based on that response surface. It’s a fully automated process, explains Dr. Andrea Shestopalov, Exa’s Director of Optimization.

Exa’s optimization solution assists manufacturers in meeting design targets by finding their optimal design through automated, targeted simulation. It allows designers to innovate in a cost-effective, deadline-driven environment. The automated approach allows for competing design aspects (i.e. fuel efficiency vs. aesthetics) to be considered and optimized throughout the process. Trade-offs between design changes can be computed, visualized and easily comprehended in our solution.

Watch this video to learn key aspects of how Exa’s PowerFLOW integrates with other third-party software to automate optimization efforts. All Exa’s software tools in an automated way making it simple for the user. To help guide users, Exa provides a full set of training materials, best practices and experiences to benefit users of the optimization solution.

Integration with third-party tools is an essential component for many in the industry and Exa created plug-ins for two of the most widely used tools in the industry: modeFrontier and Isight. Users can leverage these tools to enhance and automate for optimization purposes.
