Innovative Design Can Make
Altair's technologies and
expertise change the way organizations design
develops and implements intelligent simulation
technologies that allow you to significantly reduce
the weight of your products, saving cost, fuel and CO2
emissions, but how do we do it?
Instead of taking a product that's
already been designed and just try to shave off
material, we take a different approach, which we call
"simulation-driven design" where CAD and CAE are
deployed in parallel.
Using our optimization technologies
our clients can define a design space, an area where
the component must fit in the structure, including
data of any holes or access points required. Loads are
applied to the design space along with manufacturing
constraints and other variables, allowing our
technology to suggest the best possible material
layout, which meets the predetermined performance
Over the last two decades, Altair
has pioneered simulation-driven design to generate
innovative design solutions for its clients. This has
resulted in products that exhibit minimum weight and
outstanding performance in industry leading
Altair's software solutions enable
users to design high performance, weight efficient
structures, starting in the concept design phase.
Designers and architects can use solidThinking Inspire
to generate and explore structurally efficient
concepts in a friendly and intuitive environment.
Moving to product engineers and
analysts, HyperWorks offers optimization solutions for
both concept studies and design fine-tuning stages.
OptiStruct, Altair's award-winning integrated analysis
and optimization tool, along with HyperStudy, Altair's
design exploration software, enable a
multi-disciplinary product design cycle even for the
most complex structures.
But we're not just another software
developer. Altair began life as a product design
services company and the knowledge of real world
product development and understanding of manufacturing
processes and constraints has never been lost. Our
team works across industries, allowing us to use
processes and techniques from one industry and apply
them to another.
A Culture of Innovation
Our vision is to radically change the
way organizations design products and make
decisions, developing and applying simulation
technology to synthesize and optimize designs,
processes and decisions for improved business
performance. Privately held, with offices in
20 countries, Altair provides Innovation
to thousands of customers worldwide.
