Altair, developer of the popular HyperWorks computer-aided engineering software, today announced it has partnered with Ontonix to offer OntoNet™ complexity management solutions in the HyperWorks Partner Alliance (HWPA). The partnership will enable Altair HyperWorks customers to further optimize the product design process and analysis.
Altair HyperWorks customers can access OntoNet™ through the HWPA, a suite of third-party applications that can be accessed with the same units used to invoke HyperWorks software. The flexibility of these HyperWorks Units empowers users to deploy the largest and most complete suite of computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.
“If CAE is to cope with the inevitable increase of product complexity, then complexity must enter the CAE loop. High complexity is a prelude to inefficiency and vulnerability; therefore it becomes necessary to use a measure of product complexity as a design attribute,” said Dr. Jacek Marczyk, founder and CTO of Ontonix. Dr. Marczyk has nearly three decades of experience in CAE, has actively pioneered innovative methodologies for uncertainty and complexity management, and has published seven books on stochastic, nonlinear mechanics and complexity management. “Technology developed by Ontonix allows engineers to conceive new solutions and designs while effectively quantifying and managing the risks associated with overly complex systems”.
