HEEDS 2019.1 Available Now

HEEDS 2019.1 offers more options for implementation of complex variable relationships that allow you to simplify the definition of your study. To help you get more information from the study data, HEEDS|POST now provides the Boruta method to evaluate sensitivities. Users can leverage Rescale cloud computing in new and improved ways to discover design insights quicker and earlier in the design process saving you time and money.
 
HEEDS 2019.1 is packed with enhancements that continue to streamline design space exploration through improved automated analysis tools, processes and results. We hope these updates will help you to continue to drive innovation and discover better designs, faster!

NEW PORTAL MESSAGING DEBUGGING 
A new debugging feature was added to HEEDS portals in this release to better support the user through improved messages when something unexpected happens with the simulation tool driven by a HEEDS portal. 
 
MORE OPTIONS FOR STUDY RELATIONSHIPS 
The new Study Relationships feature introduced in HEEDS 2018.10 has been extended and further improved with the introduction of inequality relationships. This significantly expands the application field and allows for easier implementation of complex variable relationships.
 
NEW BORUTA DESIGN SENSITIVITIES 
The Response Influence Plot now has a new option to choose between the default DOE option or the new Boruta calculation option. Boruta provides insights into variable sensitivities for better understanding of the design and the design space. This helps determine how much each design variable affects responses, which allows the response influence plot to be available for any study type, not just DOE studies. The DOE studies will have both options available, while the other study types will only allow the influence plot to be based on the Boruta calculations. Once the Boruta option is selected, HEEDS|POST will compute and display important values for each design and dependent variable.
CUSTOMIZATION OF CONDITION AND COMMAND FOLDERS
Customers already have been using HEEDS processes with a high degree of flexibility in many different applications. We’re now extending this flexibility by giving the user full control of the execution location for the pre/run/post analysis commands and their condition.
 
NEW CUSTOM PLOT COLOR OPTIONS
Based on several requests to allow customization of contour color options, we’ve now introduced two major usability enhancements: Alternative color mappings for color plots/contours, and customization on the values associated to min and max colors.
NEW SUPPORT FOR RESCALE LICENSE TYPES
Access to the cloud resources provided by Rescale has never been easier. We’ve further enhanced the Rescale cluster UI to support on-demand licensing for analysis software.
