Altair, developer of the HyperWorks computer-aided engineering software, has partnered with Ontonix to offer OntoNet complexity management solutions in the HyperWorks Partner Alliance (HWPA). The partnership will enable Altair HyperWorks customers to further optimise the product design process and analysis.
OntoNet is a desktop tool that allows engineers to measure the complexity and robustness of components or systems. It processes the results of Monte Carlo Simulations, DOE, optimisation or sensitivity analyses to compute the values of system complexity and robustness. This enables engineers to exploit their expansive amounts of existing data to the fullest extent and achieve simpler, more robust designs. It works in conjunction with Mapview and produces a report containing the complexity profile of a system and the corresponding system map.
Altair HyperWorks customers can access OntoNet through the HWPA, a suite of third-party applications that can be accessed with the same units used to call on HyperWorks software. The company informs us that the flexibility of the HyperWorks Units allows users to deploy the largest and most complete suite of computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.
