Product features

INTEGRATION & PROCESS AUTOMATION
modeFRONTIER integrates with any parametric CAE software and automates simulation processes - even those involving multiple solvers belonging to different disciplines. The intuitive user interface enables engineers to define all logical steps of the engineering design process in a graphical workflow.

OPTIMIZATION
Innovative optimization algorithms take trial-and-error out of the equation by identifying accurate and robust solutions for single and multi-objective problems. RSM-based optimization replaces heavy simulation processes with numerical system approximations, generating a large number of designs in very little time.

DESIGN SPACE EXPLORATION
modeFRONTIER offers a number of efficient DOE methods that help engineers fully understand the design problem by identifying the source of variation and create datasets suitable for optimization, response surface training and robustness evaluation.

ROBUST DESIGN & RELIABILITY
modeFRONTIER multi-objective robust design optimization (MORDO) increases the reliability and robustness of industrial design by minimizing variations and the probability of failure, and by consolidating product performance under different working conditions despite uncertainties.

ANALYTICS AND VISUALIZATION
A complete and comprehensive set of post-processing and analytics tools enable engineers to extract as much information as possible from multivariate datasets, visualize results in a meaningful way and effectively explore what-if scenarios based on different assumptions.

MULTI-CRITERIA DECISION MAKING
The Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) tool automatically ranks design alternatives according to designer preferences, resulting in informed and rational decisions when selecting optimal design candidates.
