ANSYS DesignXplorer is an integrated ANSYS Workbench application that leverages the parametric and persistent power of Workbench for parametric analyses so you can efficiently explore, understand and optimize your design. DesignXplorer includes correlation, design of experiments, response surface creation and analysis, optimization and six sigma analysis.
With very little additional effort, you can parameterize any Workbench project so that DesignXplorer can begin to drive the design. Bi-directional CAD interfaces ensure that the geometry changes are done in the actual CAD tools. You can parameterize “dead” geometry in ANSYS SpaceClaim. You can activate parameters in ANSYS solvers and other tools with a single click so you can study the variations.
Exploring your design can start with correlation analysis or design of experiments (DOE) algorithms, such as Latin Hypercube Sampling, Central Composite Design or even Sparse Grid methods, to create a list of design points. DesignXplorer drives Workbench to investigate parametric variations and then stores and analyzes the results. Correlation analysis reveals which input parameters are most relevant for further study.
