ANSYS’ AIM: Empowering the Engineer

A software provider wants to enable common engineers to conduct simulations early and often in the development cycle so they can make better design decisions.

Sound familiar?

Well, it should. It’s been the goal of, well, just about every software provider serving the engineering community over the past twenty years. And what’s more, their approach has been pretty repetitive as well. It has most frequently consisted of taking advanced simulation capabilities from analysis tools, slimming and simplifying them, and putting them into CAD tools. I have some findings that I’ll be sharing soon that shed some light on how that solutions strategy has, or has not, been impactful. But I’ll give you a quick hint: today’s engineers are not running simulations consistently and frequently.

In the past few years, though, some software providers have offered a new approach to enabling engineers with simulation. One of those is ANSYS. So in this post, we’re going to be taking a closer look at their offering: AIM. Ready? Let’s get rolling.

In IoT Era, IT Becoming Fourth Key Role in Product Development

I remember back in 2006 when I first heard the term mechatronics. At that time, the term described a burgeoning concept that traditional products were undergoing a transformation. They were no longer just composed of mechanical hardware: electronic hardware and embedded software were increasingly part of products. That idea, of course, carried some serious implications for product


PTC’s Integrity Modeler

If you’ve been following some of the latest on new tools that help engineer’s design and develop products, then you’ve seen system engineering come up again and again. Processes and standards have been around for some time for system engineering. However, it has only been in the last few years that we’re seeing a growing


Workbench: ANSYS’ Simulation Platform

Concept design. Detailed design. Verification and validation. Prototype and test. Today, simulation can be used in each of these areas to great benefit. However, that doesn’t mean you can simply create one simulation solution to cover all of them. There are distinctly separate roles that would apply simulation in each of those phases of development.
