Discover more innovative solutions with design space exploration

Modeling and simulation software provides an excellent way for designers and engineers to cost-effectively evaluate how their products will perform under expected operating conditions. Improving the performance of designs can be a tedious, manual, time-consuming process. With increasing product complexity, identifying what changes to make to improve performance relies more on trial and error than an efficient systematic approach. HEEDS™ provides an environment that assists in discovering better designs, faster. It tackles these challenges by automating your analysis process, leveraging your investment in computing hardware, efficiently searching for better performing solutions and providing intuitive ways to review the design performance. Even engineers with very little design optimization experience can use HEEDS to discover optimal designs — in a fraction of the time it would take to perform even a handful of manual iterations. Using HEEDS software changes the paradigm of improving product performance. You no longer start with a design and use simulation to only evaluate performance. You can now define desired performance and allow HEEDS and your simulation tools to help discover better designs, faster.
