ANSYS has announced that it is to acquire Dynardo, a provider of simulation process integration and design optimisation (PIDO) technology, which should allow users to identify optimal product designs faster and more economically.
The integration of Dynardo’s tools will sit with Ansys Minerva’s simulation data, processes and knowledge management solutions, and should form a package that lets users integrate and manage critical simulation and optimisation results.
An existing Ansys partner, Dynardo develops leading-edge algorithms for optimisation, uncertainty quantification, robustness, scenario variation, sensitivity analysis, simulation workflow building and data mining.
“Design space exploration and optimisation is key for organisations looking to reduce development time and accelerate the evaluation of optimal product design alternatives for cost and performance,” said Navin Budhiraja, VP & GM of cloud and platform at Ansys.
“This acquisition will accelerate Ansys’ pervasive simulation vision, advance our industry-leading platform and will enable our customers to leverage an open ecosystem approach to connect simulation and optimization throughout their product lifecycle processes.”
