TROY, Mich., March 5, — Altair today announced the release of HyperWorks 12.0, the most comprehensive computer-aided engineering platform in the PLM market. HyperWorks 12.0 offers new functionalities and end-user productivity advancements in product optimization, finite element modeling, multiphysics analysis, powertrain durability analysis, lightweight design and many others.
"HyperWorks 12.0 provides automated and easy-to-use features that save time, ensure accuracy and improve products by making them lighter and by offering the opportunity for much more design exploration," said James Brancheau, Altair's Chief Technical Officer. "The very tight integration and interoperability of the open-platform HyperWorks suite allow engineers, designers and analysts to create and evaluate every aspect of their products with assurance that they have found the best design for their objectives."
The advanced capabilities within HyperWorks 12.0 emphasize performance improvements and enhancements in:
The advancements in HyperWorks 12.0 received positive reviews from customer beta users. For example, Jonathan Gabrys, Technical Fellow of The Boeing Company, said, "The new 3D capability creates a fully-immersive environment that improves our ability to support conceptual design and analysis efforts. Specifically, being able to interrogate complex analysis results, such as stress fields or deflections, using 3D visualization provides an enhanced level of understanding."
In addition to the HyperWorks suite, Altair provides virtually limitless value and access to third party technology through the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). Directly accessed using HyperWorks Units (HWUs), today HyperWorks clients have access to wide variety of specialized software applications developed by nearly 30 different strategic partners.
With the launch of HyperWorks 12.0, Altair continues to increase the value, flexibility and portability of the HyperWorks licenses. The suite remains available "in the cloud" via HyperWorks On-Demand (HWOD), a platform that uses Altair's PBS Works suite for high performance computing (HPC) for workload management, job submission, monitoring and workload analytics. This allows easy access to cloud computing and subsequent accounting – all using HWUs, requiring minimal additional investment.
Altair empowers client innovation and decision-making through technology that optimizes the analysis, management and visualization of business and engineering information. Privately held, with over 1,800 employees, Altair has offices throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia/Pacific. With a 27-year track record for high-end software for engineering and computing, enterprise analytics solutions, and innovative product design and development, Altair consistently delivers a competitive advantage to customers in a broad range of industries.
