Have a look to the ANSYS page Optimization & Robust Design describing the the recently-released white paper:  How Design Optimization Can Help Vault YourProduct Ahead of Competitors’ by Gilles Eggenspieler.


Simulation offers the potential to improve the performance of nearly any product or process by predicting its behavior prior to building a prototype, providing much more diagnostic information than physical testing.

But conventional simulation predicts the performance of only a single design point at a time.

In the real world, there are usually many design parameters whose potential combinations result in an often incalculable number of design points.

How do you quickly determine the design point that delivers the best combination of performance, cost, weight, size and other design parameters that make the difference between success and failure?
