Optimus Rev. 2018.1 Introduces Modeling Methods Boosted by Machine Learning
Many of the new updates that come with Optimus Rev. 2018.1 further enhance Design Space Exploration and Optimization capabilities while increasing compatibility with leading CAD/CAE solutions.
November 12, 2018
Noesis Solutions, developer of Optimus and id8, has released Optimus Rev. 2018.1. This release introduces new modeling methods boosted by Machine Learning, enabling engineering teams to create accurate models for low and high-dimensional optimization problems faster. Many of the new updates that come with Optimus Rev. 2018.1 further enhance Design Space Exploration and Optimization capabilities while increasing compatibility with leading CAD/CAE solutions. This new release confirms Optimus as the industry’s preferred platform for Design Space Exploration and Engineering Optimization.
Modeling Boosted by Machine Learning
This new Optimus release introduces modeling methods boosted by Machine Learning, enabling engineering teams to create accurate models for low and high-dimensional optimization problems even with a limited number of training data sets. The new Light Weight Neural Networks (LWNN), Random Forest Regression (RFR) and Relevance Vector Regression (RVR) algorithms assist the user in accurately modeling large data sets quickly. The new Best Model algorithm even assists non-expert users by automatically selecting the best-performing model for any given data set among the models available in Optimus.
Design Space Exploration and Optimization Capabilities
In addition, Optimus Rev. 2018.1 brings several improvements to Optimus’ unique Adaptive DOE algorithm that learns from available data points and iteratively adds extra data samples in design space regions that matter most. This new Optimus release further extends the capabilities of NAVIRUN, the Noesis Advanced adviser, which now also supports discrete optimization problems.
Further increasing compatibility with leading CAD/CAE solutions.
Optimus continues to reach out to a growing engineering community through its extensive set of engineering software interfaces. With a total of 40 interfaces to leading CAD/CAE solutions, Optimus frees design engineers from repetitive manual model changes and data processing during the execution of virtual experiments – tremendously saving time.
Optimus Rev. 2018.1 comes with a high number of updates that further increase the compatibility with the latest versions of SimulationX, Creo, Abaqus, CATIA, MS Excel, FloMASTER, HDF5, RomaxDESIGNER, JMAG, and MapleSim. Optimus Rev. 2018.01 also supports ANSYS Electronics Desktop on all operating systems that Optimus is compatible with.
