Red Cedar Licenses CEI's EnSight Data ReadersHelps speed design optimization within HEEDS (June 28, 2004)
Red Cedar Technology has licensed CEI's EnSight data readers to further speed design optimization in its HEEDS software.
HEEDS (Hierarchical Evolutionary Engineering Design System) allows engineers to automatically and concurrently explore hundreds of design parameters and their relationships in product and process design scenarios. CEI's EnSight visualization software provides data readers for the world's leading CAE programs.
EnSight readers will allow HEEDS users to separate native output files from CAE codes and then extract the data needed to optimize a particular design.
"Our use of the EnSight readers within HEEDS will simplify and improve the process of defining and executing a design optimization or exploration study," says Ron Averill, president of Red Cedar Technology. "This will help our users quickly determine how good a particular design is whether, for example, it meets the desired targets or satisfies constraints."
According to Darin McKinnis, CEI's director of sales, HEEDS represents the next generation of mechanical simulation.
"HEEDS is an important tool for the FEA community," says McKinnis. "CEI is excited to be a part of the process that will help improve optimization studies for these engineers."
