The scale and frequency with which simulation is performed today — usually in tens of thousands — have spawned a new class of software, targeting simulation process management. Dassault Systemes‘ Isight falls into this category.
“Isight provides designers, engineers, and researchers with an open system for integrating design and simulation models — created with various CAD, CAE and other software applications — to automate the execution of hundreds or thousands of simulations,” according to Dassault. “Isight allows users to save time and improve their products by optimizing them against performance or cost metrics through statistical methods such as Design of Experiments (DOE) or Design for Six Sigma.”
This week, Dassault is releasing Isight 5.6. One of the new features is a method for users to compute and sample around the most probable point of failure in a design, according to Dassault’s announcement. The software also includes updates to Abaqus component to run multiple Abaqus/CAE cases. It does so with the option to parse all detected input files and create output parameters for multiple analyses. An improved data-matching component is expected to let you define and match multiple data sets within multiple ranges.
