ATI utilizes the HEEDS optimization package to set up and conduct complex analyses that employ multiple FEA and CAD software packages. The search algorithm specific to HEEDS enables ATI’s engineers to intelligently conduct broad, efficient searches for optimized designs.
These designs are based on variables and responses generated by the team at ATI. ATI arrives at an optimized solution by exploring design combinations comprised of the design geometry, attributes, and characteristics.
By utilizing engineering tools, the design combinations tie together with HEEDS to search the design space. HEEDS automates the evaluation process and executes the analysis numerous times, each time adjusting design variables until an optimum solution is obtained.
