modeFRONTIER provides an innovative optimization environment with modular, profiled-based access. ESTECO's integration platform for multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization offers a seamless coupling with third party engineering tools, enables the automation of the design simulation process and facilitates analytic decision making.

​Discover how the philosophy behind modeFRONTIER 2016 benefits your entire organization by reducing complexity, improving efficiency and cutting development time.​

modeFRONTIER streamlines the design process with powerful workflows, innovative algorithms and sophisticated post-processing tools allowing the user to perform statistical analysis, data visualization and decision making. Its multidisciplinary design enabling technology, critical to successful new product development today, keeps it at the forefront of engineering technology.

MODULES

modeSPACE

The design space environment is now also available as a standalone application - modeSPACE - that enables efficient license and role management within teams. This module includes the sophisticated set of modeFRONTIER tools for data analysis and investigation of problem characteristics both in the post-processing and in the pre-optimization phase.

modePROCESS

modePROCESS is an independent desktop application intended for describing processes in the form of graphical workflows, that specify which parameters and simulations are required to solve an engineering design problem.

New User Profiles enable multidisciplinary engineering practices to consolidate specialized expertise and streamline teamwork by allocating software resources where needed. Depending on the step of the engineering problem at hand, it is now possible to access different functionalities within the same installation through dedicated modules (modeSPACE and modePROCESS) or directly in modeFRONTIER, according to the profile of the user.​

Sometimes data needs more focus. Analysts can now create and edit post-processing charts, train RSMs (Response Surface Methods), and exploit advanced MVA (Multi-Variate Analysis) tools, directly from the standalone module. The improved RSM wizard, now including the automatic training feature, assists the user in the creation of highly accurate response models to be exploited for interactive what-if analysis and response prediction. Also, the new RSM Evaluation Chart helps compare metamodels based on the approximation quality.

DOE (Design of Experiments) experts can now set up and execute a Design Exploration Workflow in modeFRONTIER and also enjoy the full set of tools dedicated to data analysis in the modeSPACE module. The new Sensitivity Analysis Tool, the RSM Evaluation Chart and the improved RSM wizard offer an environment tailored to effective design space exploration. This reliable support base assists analysts in understanding multidisciplinary attribute roles, finding correlations, performing impact analysis by executing the automatically-trained metamodels or carrying out advanced MVA.

SINGLE DISCIPLINE DESIGN
Enhanced design solutions for domain experts

When focusing on a single analysis domain, users can create, edit and run single discipline optimization projects exploiting the whole range of modeFRONTIER algorithms together with up to three direct integration nodes. By including domain-specific tools in the workflow, created directly through modeFRONTIER or through modePROCESS, engineering teams can exploit the prediction capability of simulations further. Advanced analytics tools guide designers and let them concentrate exclusively on relevant design parameters. Product performance targets are reached sooner, reducing manual iterations and respecting critical design constraints.
