Engineer using HEEDS to enable automated workflows for the ease of driving product development processes.


Process automation

HEEDS software enables automated workflows for the ease of driving product development processes. With an extensive list of developed interfaces to commercial CAD and CAE tools, HEEDS quickly and easily integrates many technologies without custom scripting or manual manipulation.

Enable process automation

HEEDS streamlines the virtual prototyping process by eliminating the need for manual data transfer between different simulation tools. It also makes it possible to evaluate tradeoffs and design robustness, which helps users focus on design selection and verification.

HEEDS also has a large number of pre-developed interfaces (portals) to various computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools. This allows HEEDS to integrate with these technologies quickly and easily, without the need for custom scripting or manual data manipulation. Drag-and-drop tool icons to define the process flow to build your virtual prototype. You can include internal tools or commercial 1D, 2D and 3D simulation software. The process can be sequential or can include branching and loops. You decide.

The data generated by these different tools is automatically shared between them, allowing the user to evaluate performance trade-offs and assess the robustness of the design. This integration of different technologies allows for a more comprehensive evaluation of the design, leading to a better optimized solution.

HEEDS helps you automate and simplify virtual prototyping initiatives by allowing you to:

  • Create process flows combining internal, commercial 1D, 2D and 3D simulation and cost-estimating tools
  • Modify any native geometry
  • Robustly re-mesh or update any simulation physics models
  • Support co-simulation or sequential workflows
  • Automate model rebuilding to explore a broad design space

Easily connect and interact with many commercial and internal software solutions
By using HEEDS, you can easily define the design workflow and automatically share data between different modeling and simulation products. This leaves you to focus on gaining a deeper understanding of your design and choosing the best option for production.

The process automation capabilities of HEEDS allow users to push a single button and evaluate any design variant. With the workflow fully automated, it allows for downstream design space exploration to take place more easily and efficiently.

Intuitive to use
Even though the technology driving HEEDS is complex, the software is user-friendly. The unique interface leads you clearly through the five-step process of project setup, execution and data mining.
