HEEDS enables automated workflows to make it easier to drive product development processes. With an extensive list of interfaces designed for commercial CAD and CAE tools, HEEDS quickly and easily integrates many technologies without the need for custom scripts . Data is automatically shared across different modeling and simulation products to assess performance tradeoffs and design robustness.

HEEDS leverages existing hardware investments by making efficient use of all available hardware resources . Utilize Windows and Linux-based workstations or clusters , on-premises or offsite, as well as cloud computing resources to accelerate the development of innovative products. For example, geometry modifications can be automated on a Windows® operating system laptop , a structural deformation simulation can be performed on a Linux workstation, and a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation can be performed on multiple computer cores. a Linux cluster , or in the cloud.

Unlike most traditional optimization tools, which require highly specialized technical knowledge and model simplification to enable efficient search, all designers and engineers can use HEEDS to achieve innovation. HEEDS includes proprietary Design Space Exploration functionality to efficiently find design concepts that meet or exceed performance requirements. HEEDS automatically adapts its search strategy as it learns more about the design space to find the best possible solution within the allotted time frame. It's easy to use, designed to meet deadlines, and capable of delivering significant value!

HEEDS provides the ability to easily compare performance across a broad spectrum of designs that exhibit desirable characteristics and robustness. The software helps users visualize project performance trade-offs between competing objectives and constraints with a variety of charts, tables and images to gain insights and discover innovative solutions. This facilitates the development of production-ready designs; enabling a truly digital twin!
