Ansys Discovery improves product design processes

Reduces engineering labor costs by 26%, enables evaluation of 60% more design alternatives and slashes physical testing and safety costs by 19%.

Ansys is helping engineering teams deliver gains in productivity, spur innovation and speed time to market with Ansys Discovery. Significantly expanding on the breakthrough advancements delivered by Ansys Discovery Live, this next generation application delivers a comprehensive solution that combines interactive real-time simulation, high-fidelity Ansys solver technology and direct modeling in a single tool — powering cross-team collaboration to cost-effectively develop high-quality products.

Stefan Macho, head of R&D Simulation, HAWE Hydraulik, said:

“Discovery equips our team with a much better understanding of the physics behind our products very early in the design process, enabling them to meet customer requirements more precisely, avoid overengineering and eliminate uncertainties. This has resulted in improved product performance, increased design efficiency and shortened product development cycles.”

Discovery is the first simulation tool to combine instant physics simulation, accurate high-fidelity simulation and interactive geometry modeling into a single very easy-to-use interface. Conducting real-time, rapid iterative design explorations, more engineers can now explore larger design spaces and quickly answer critical design questions earlier in the product design process.

Mauricio Toro, CEO, TechFit Digital Surgery, said:

“Discovery has made a profound impact on how we engineer new products. By shifting to the left — adopting simulation during the concept and design phases —our team understands the impact of design decisions early, prior to selecting a potentially suboptimal or ultimately more expensive solution.”

Driving widespread adoption of simulation, Ansys Discovery offers an intuitive user experience built for the design engineer, delivers industry-leading fidelity in the analysis stage with embedded Ansys flagship solvers and provides tremendous speed to support design engineering workflows. Teams will be able to innovate more designs in less time, provide rapid design exploration and deliver detailed insight into product performance.

Mark Hindsbo, general manager, design business unit, Ansys, said:

“Discovery delivers a next-generation user experience, enables a very quick and intuitive learning curve for every engineer, and represents as big a step forward in 3D design as the initial release of Ansys Discovery Live. Coupled with our unique real-time simulation technology and gold standard solvers, it has never before been so easy to interactively explore a large design space and perform refinement with peak accuracy. This enables engineers to bring simulation upfront in the ideation and design phase of product development, uncovering risks early before the costs to correct them become high or difficult to change.”

Ansys Discovery executes interactive design exploration with real-time simulation of fluid flow behavior within a flow control valve.
