Our customer is a leading manufacturer of civil and defence aerospace vehicles. The customer is in process of design and development of new generation platforms to maintain the competitive edge in the market. Many of the simulation tools are require manual intervention and the customer wished that the engineers be trained in their own premises with simulation techniques offering multi-disciplinary design optimization (MDO) approach.
Zeus Numerix divided the workshop in two parts i.e. Theory and Practical. Theory sessions started with the introduction to MDO techniques and various modeling and simulations that can be coupled with them. These sessions included mathematics of optimization techniques with faculty from IIT Bombay and Zeus. The methods included Gradient based, Genetic and Particle Swarm optimization techniques. Besides theory, practical sessions by ZN engineers covered various computer languages and case studies. CDAC, Bangalore presented utilization of HPC.
More than 15 engineers benefited from the course with 80% rating to the course content and teaching. Workshop has encouraged the customer engineers to generate their own MDO framework.
