Noesis Solutions advances simulation-led design processes with the new Optimus 2023.1

Noesis Solutions, a trusted Digital Engineering Transformation partner,
today announced the availability of Optimus 2023.1. With the latest release
of Optimus 2023.1, Noesis Solutions focuses on improving the security,
usability, and stability of the tool.

Optimus, an Automation and Optimization tool by Noesis Solutions, enables
users to outsmart competition while considering all relevant design
constraints – effectively implementing an Objectives Driven Engineering
process, and saving time & resources. Optimus bundles a powerful range of
capabilities for Engineering Process Integration, Design Space Exploration &
Optimization, and Robustness & Reliability.

“Companies across the globe are embracing simulation-led design processes
and are leveraging data to spark innovation, streamline operations and boost
efficiencies,” said Christine Schwarz, Product Owner – Optimus, Noesis
Solutions. “With the ever-increasing dependence on software systems for the
engineering design cycles, their longevity has become a pressing need.
Stability of those tools is one of the primary properties to achieve this”
she added on why Noesis Solutions decided to focus on these features in
their latest release of Optimus 2023.1.

A vendor-neutral open platform

As an entirely vendor-neutral Optimization and Automation platform, Optimus
provides an open architecture to communicate with any engineering software,
including the capability to deal with any file syntax.

Optimus 2023.1 keeps up with the speed of the release cycles of the
supported engineering software to always be able to interface with their
latest versions. With Optimus 2023.1, users can interface to the SIMULIA
Abaqus version 2023, ANSYS version 2023 R1, ANSYS Electronic Desktop version
2023 R1, Cradle software versions 2023, and JMAG version Ver.22.0 in
addition to the existing software that can be integrated to the platform.

Postprocessing & Feasibility Highlighting

Optimus 2023.1 has also upgraded its feasibility highlighting of
experiments, letting users see the feasibility of each experiment directly
in the summary plot for all methods including Table methods and Design of
Experiment methods. With this extension the user has the possibility to
observe the feasibility status of each experiment directly in the summary

To enhance the postprocessing functionality of Optimus 2023.1 the
accessibility to the experiment number and iteration number has been
introduced. “With this new possibility the user can gain insight into the
progress of any method faster.

Framework Extensions

Optimus 2023.1 has focused on improvements in parallel behavior by
introducing the automatic deletion of files from previous experiments. The
approach was introduced to avoid misuse of files in case of failure for
subsequent experiments. This saves the engineers from any delay without
compromising the quality of the product.

OPS (Optimus Parallel Services) is a lightweight resource management system
specially designed to cooperate with Optimus. A new functionality has been
introduced in Optimus 2023.1 that enables users to define a maximum number
of jobs for a defined service. A new user flag has been introduced to
control the storage of all files in any Optimus workflow allowing the user
to set the default behavior individually.

Optimus now ships the latest and more secure frameworks and libraries to
keep our software up to date with the latest security patches and to avoid
vulnerabilities. This includes the update of Python to version 3.10.8 which
can be used directly by the user from the Optimus workflow.

Optimus 2023.1 is available on the market now.
