Isight: Process Automation and Optimization
Available from Optimal Device
Isight is a process automation tool that can talk to many of your favorite design softwares such as CAD, simulation and even Excel. At its core Isight can automate most tasks you could teach a high functioning monkey. The most traditional use is updating a CAD model based on the results of a simulation. However, the workflow can be as crazy as needed with nested loops and many engineering tools.
Once the workflow is setup then Design Of Experiments (DOE) or optimization methods start. At a company named Optimal Device, optimization is near and dear to our heart. Latin Hyper Cubes, Genetic Algorithms, Golden Rule Ratio: best dinner conversation fodder ever.
