Maplesoft and Noesis Solutions work together in engineering design optimization and process integration

Leuven, Belgium, and Waterloo, Canada, May 29 - 2012 – Noesis Solutions and Maplesoft™ today announced a partnership that brings together products from both companies to help engineers create superior products while reducing development costs. The companies have developed an interface between Optimus® from Noesis Solutions, and Maple™ and MapleSim™ from Maplesoft.

The connection, which is implemented as Direct Interface in Optimus, allows MapleSim and Maple users to easily apply design optimization technology from Optimus to find the best parameter values for their complex designs, while continuing to take advantage of the flexible design environments and tools of MapleSim and Maple. Optimus users can now add Maple and MapleSim as system simulation software tools in their design and development.

MapleSim is a high-performance multidomain physical modeling environment that uses a fully developed symbolic modeling engine to handle all of the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering models. The mathematical power for MapleSim is supplied by Maple, a software tool used by mathematicians, engineers, and scientist to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve mathematical problems. A combination of MapleSim, Maple and Optimus gives users sophisticated ways of doing parameter studies for efficient designs in complex engineering processes.

The Optimus platform automates the traditional ‘guess & correct’ simulation based design process, and with powerful optimization algorithms efficiently directs the simulation to identify the best designs. After evaluating the most promising design candidates, customers pick the most optimal and robust design option to verify in detail and take into production. Users report design time savings averaging over 30%, while simultaneously improving design performance by 10% or more.

“Balancing different design objectives is always a challenge, and it is even more difficult when different simulation tools are used to measure different aspects of the project,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “Now MapleSim and Maple users can incorporate their designs into the Optimus framework to leverage high-powered parameter optimization techniques across their entire project.”

“Optimus exists to help customers design better products while reducing development time and expenditure,” says Hans Wynendaele, Noesis Solutions President and COO. “Maplesoft can now offer a solution that links design optimization with its powerful multidomain physical modeling and symbolic computation technology. Optimus, combined with Maple and MapleSim, allow customers to design superior products that set new standards in product excellence.”
