CD-adapco and Red Cedar Technology Break New Ground with Strategic Partnership

Optimate animationEast Lansing, MI (June 21, 2012) - Red Cedar Technology announced today that CD-adapco has agreed to embed HEEDS design optimization technology into the upcoming release (V7.04) of its market-leading STAR-CCM+ CFD software. The new process automation and optimization capabilities will be packaged as modules named Optimate and Optimate+.
 
Optimate allows engineering designers to easily set up, execute, and post-process design exploration studies such as parameter sweeps and/or DOEs. Optimate+ adds the capability to perform automated design optimization studies using the SHERPA algorithm from Red Cedar, providing the required efficiency for optimization with complex CFD simulations.  In addition to DOE methods and the SHERPA algorithm, the Optimate add-ons also tap in to Red Cedar’s post-processing methods, which allow users to easily analyze and explore results of design studies.

“The Optimate solution sets a new standard for CFD design exploration,” said Bob Ryan, CEO of Red Cedar Technology.  “CFD optimization is now simple, efficient, and cost-effective.”
Following their pattern of innovative CAE software licensing, CD-adapco announced a new Power Token licensing scheme along with the Optimate solution. Power Tokens give the ultimate flexibility to engineers allowing them to maximize their hardware and software configurations for any given situation in the most cost-effective manner. These Power Tokens can be used to “mix and match” the number of simultaneous simulations AND the number of parallel processes within each simulation.
 
“Software licensing costs have historically been the most prohibitive bottleneck in implementing simulation driven design in many engineering organizations,” said CD-adapco Senior VP Bill Clark. “CD-adapco prides itself on our history of working together with our customers to define innovation not only in engineering simulation technology, but also CAE licensing models. We believe the Optimate solution with Power Tokens provides unprecedented access to cost-effective simulation driven design using advanced CFD methods.”
The Optimate solution along with Power Token licensing will be available with the release of STAR-CCM+ v7.04 in June 2012.  A recorded product introduction webinar, which includes a demonstration of Optimate, is available from the CD-adapco website.

HEEDS MDO Optimization with VI-Motorsport Simulation Produces Early Success for Triple Eight Racing Team

Triple 8 carEast Lansing, MI (April 24, 2012) – Red Cedar Technology and its UK distributor, Zouch Dynamics Ltd., announced today that their technology partnership has helped Triple Eight Race Engineering and the MG KX Momentum Racing team achieve a first place race finish during the inaugural weekend of the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.

“Our priorities were reliability and finishing races; however the performance we were able to extract from the car, on what was essentially day two of testing, was beyond all expectations and is due in no small part to the effort and direction that Zouch Dynamics and Red Cedar Technology have provided. The first validations we received on Saturday allowed us to make some changes overnight that we had confidence in, and they proved right from the start we were in the game.” - Carl Faux, Chief Designer at Triple Eight Race Engineering

Red Cedar Technology Forms Strategic Partnership with TotalCAE

HEEDS MDO software and TotalCAE IT solutions integrate for a complete innovation platform{C}

TotalCAE logoEast Lansing, MI (February 29, 2012) – Red Cedar Technology announced today the formation of a strategic partnership with the Ann Arbor-based IT company, TotalCAE. Red Cedar Technology recently contracted TotalCAE's services to install a High Performance Computing cluster and batch system at the East Lansing Headquarters location. TotalCAE was chosen based on their extensive experience with both with the queuing codes and the CAE software tools that Red Cedar Technology uses regularly. TotalCAE also had prior experience installing HEEDS MDO design optimization software on compute clusters owned by Red Cedar Technology customers.
