May 22, 2013 - Leuven (Belgium) – Noesis Solutions, renowned for Optimus process integration and design optimization software, today announced that Maplesoft has embedded Optimus technology as the engine in the latest release of the Maple Global Optimization Toolbox. By integrating Optimus technology, simulation software vendors can offer their users market-leading design optimization capabilities that efficiently identify product designs offering benchmark performance.
Noesis Solutions’ flagship product Optimus, developed since 1997, offers validated and robust design exploration and optimization technologies that are fully OEM ready. Optimus’ OEM-ready libraries contain powerful Design of Experiments (DOE), Response Surface Modeling (RSM) and Design Optimization algorithms. Recently, Maplesoft embedded these Optimus libraries to power the latest release of the Maple Global Optimization Toolbox. Maple is a technical computing and documentation environment with acclaimed symbolic modeling technology that handles all of the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering models.
Without requiring optimization expertise and extra development resources, leading software vendors like Maplesoft can further extend the power of their simulation offering using Optimus’ OEM-ready libraries. Both the robustness and openness of the Optimus technology are crucial to enable an easy and flexible integration of its powerful design exploration and optimization capabilities in any third-party simulation environment. With Optimus technology driving the Maple Global Optimization Toolbox, engineers, mathematicians and scientists can efficiently conduct global optimization immediately. Global optimization identifies the best possible solution, outperforming sub-optimal local solutions that insufficiently exploit the available engineering potential. Using the embedded Optimus methods and options, Maple users can reach optimum solutions faster and solve more problems than ever before.
“In today’s competitive environment, companies can no longer settle for second-best when it comes to solving their design problems,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “They need the best possible solution to deliver the best, most cost-effective products to their customers. With the new Maple Global Optimization Toolbox powered by Optimus technology, customers will be able to determine the best solutions to their most challenging problems.”
“We are pleased that Maplesoft has chosen our industry-proven Optimus technology to develop their new Global Optimization Toolbox,” says Naji El Masri, Noesis Solutions Chief Technology Officer. “Thanks to its robustness, Optimus technology is increasingly being adopted by software development companies like Maplesoft to extend the power of their solutions. With Optimus technology embedded inside Maple’s rich technical document environment, users can be confident to find the optimal design configuration quickly and effectively. They can develop full solutions that include computations, documentation, visualizations, interactive applications, and more.”
