Design Optimisation Using CATIA Knowledgeware Module

Design optimisation is the process of finding the best design parameters that satisfy project requirements. Optimisation consists of “maximise”, “minimise”, or “approach a target value”, using a variety of parameters. Performing a conventional optimisation using manual iterations can be a long and tedious task.

Performing a conventional optimisation using manual iterations can be a long and tedious task.

CATIA allows the user to perform design optimisation in a short time using “product engineering optimiser” inside the “knowledgeware” module. The following video shows how to use the optimiser module with a simple example. This particular example focuses on the design optimisation.
