Videos: Democratization of Complex or Proprietary Processes
Enabling simulation to be safely conducted by users who are not subject-matter-experts can greatly increase the impact and ROI of many simulation and analysis tools. Explore case studies where EASA has been used to deploy models created with a wide range of software, such as:
- MATLAB, Mathcad, and other mathematical modeling tools
- ANSYS, Nastran, and other CAE Modeling tools
- In-House and legacy software
EASA enables you to “appify” your simulation models and workflows to easily-deployed, web-based applications that embed design rules, constraint checks and error trapping, which can then be deployed to any controlled group of users. Users could be existing subject-matter-experts needing to streamline their current workflows, and/or occasional users who don’t have the time to refamiliarize themselves, or even those new to modeling.
Embedding engineering design rules into a custom configuration-to-order web app
By integrating with databases as well as design software, then wrapping the process with an intelligent GUI, this app enables non experts to select from existing components or safely conduct a design calculation. The underlying workflow involves Excel, CAD, FEA and MS Access.
Rapid codeless creation of a secure enterprise web app from an Excel spreadsheet
Spreadsheet appification eliminates version control chaos, accidental IP exposure, accidental formulae overwrites, and a host of other common spreadsheet pitfalls while providing users with an interface that is much easier to understand. See how straightforward app building (“authoring”) is, and without any programming required.
Automating a legacy process by transforming it into an intelligent web app
Despite being well validated and having very high value (often unique) methodologies and algorithms, legacy software is often under utilized due to clumsy user interfaces (text based input files, confusing command line input, etc.) and scarcity of compute hardware capable of running these codes. Watch how EASA enables you to breathe new life into old software.
Simplifying a CAD and analysis workflow with a custom configurator for non-experts
By matching a design to existing CAD drawings or automatically generating a new design by creating a new CAD file and then running a simulation via a structural analysis program, non subject matter experts such sales and marketing staff or even customers can quickly determine a feasible configuration.
Deployment of standardized Mathcad and Excel calculations as collaborative web apps
Math software tools such as MATLAB, Mathcad and Excel comprise the most common platforms for custom calculations and models, but can be difficult to use and also suffer from the typical problems of desktop based software (installation required for end-users, version control, IP security, audit trail, etc.). See how EASA facilitates automation and collaboration by deploying standardized analyses as intuitive web apps.
Encapsulating a CAD and structural analysis workflow into a simplified web app
Significant efficiency gains can be realized by appifying a repeated process used to simulate mild derivative designs. Integration and automation coupled with strict adherence to a design rule based methodology ensures fast and reliable new designs. Not only does this offer efficiency gains to existing users, but enables new and inexperienced users to utilize the modeling technology.
