East Lansing, MI (July 29, 2013) – Red Cedar Technology, Inc. announced today that it has released a new full-featured portal linking HEEDS to the MSC Adams product line, including Adams/View, Adams/Car, and Adams/Chassis.
“This new portal brings the power of HEEDS optimization to multibody dynamics in a very simple and straightforward way. It has dramatically improved our design process,” states Jesper Slattengren of Pratt & Miller, a vehicle dynamics specialist and an advisor to Red Cedar Technology on the new capabilities. “HEEDS combined with Adams allows us to find feasible vehicle designs within highly constrained performance requirements in less time than we ever thought possible. We have used this capability to win significant new vehicle design business for our organization.”
A previously released portal to Adams/View allowed users to identify and tag any of the responses from the request file for use in design exploration studies. The new portal adds streamlined access to all of the design variables and objectives in Adams/View, Adams/Car, and Adams/Chassis so as to simplify the selection of variables to consider in optimization or design of experiment studies.
The new HEEDS portal to Adams will be released with HEEDS MDO version 7.1, available on August 15, 2013.
