ANSYS, Inc. (ANSYS), incorporated on January 12, 1994, develops and markets engineering simulation software and services used by engineers, designers, researchers and students across a spectrum of industries and academia, including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, biomedical, energy and defense. The Company distributes its ANSYS suite of simulation technologies through a global network of independent resellers and distributors, channel partners and direct sales offices across the world. The Company's product portfolio consists of ANSYS Workbench, Structures, Fluids, Electronics, Systems and Academic.

ANSYS Workbench

ANSYS Workbench is the framework upon which the Company's suite of advanced engineering simulation technologies is built. The ANSYS Workbench platform delivers productivity, enabling Simulation Driven Product Development. The project schematic view ties together the entire simulation process, guiding the user through multiphysics analyses with drag-and-drop feature. With bi-directional computer-aided design (CAD) connectivity, meshing, a project-level update mechanism, pervasive parameter management and integrated optimization tools, the ANSYS Workbench platform delivers productivity, enabling Simulation-Driven Product Development. ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (ANSYS EKM) is a solution for simulation-based process and data management challenges. ANSYS EKM provides solutions and benefits to all levels of an organization, enabling it to address the issues associated with simulation data, including backup and archival, traceability and audit trail, process automation, collaboration and capture of engineering expertise, and intellectual property protection.

The Company's high-performance computing (HPC) product suite enables enhanced insight into product performance and improves the productivity of the design process. The HPC product suite delivers cross-physics parallel processing capabilities for the full spectrum of the Company's simulation software by supporting structures, fluids, thermal and electronics simulations. HPC product suite allows users to consider multiple design ideas and make decisions early in the design cycle. The Company, through Geometry Interfaces, offers geometry handling solutions for engineering simulation in an integrated environment with direct interfaces to all major CAD systems, support of additional readers and translators, and an integrated geometry modeler focused on analysis. Meshing includes creating a mesh that transforms a physical model into a mathematical model which is a foundational step in every engineering simulation study. The Company's meshing technology provides a means to balance the requirements, to obtain the right mesh for each simulation in the most automated way possible.


The Company's structures product suite offers simulation tools for product design and optimization that increase productivity, minimize physical prototyping and help to deliver products in less time. These tools tackle real-world analysis problems by making product development less costly and more reliable. In addition, these tools have capabilities that cover a range of analysis types, elements, contacts, materials, equation solvers and coupled physics capabilities all targeted toward understanding and solving complex design problems. Structures include Explicit Dynamics and Composites. The Company's explicit dynamics product suite simulates events involving short-duration, large-strain, large-deformation, fracture, complete material failure or structural problems with complex interactions. This suite is used for simulating physical events that occur in a short period of time and may result in material damage or failure. Composites blend two or more materials that possess very different properties. The Company's Evolutionary Engineering AG (EVEN) composite analysis and optimization technology is offered through ANSYS Composite PrepPost. It defines materials, plies and stacking sequences, and offers a choice of failure criteria.


The Company's fluids product suite enables modeling of fluid flow and other related physical phenomena. Fluid flow analysis capabilities provide all the tools needed to design and optimize new fluids equipment and to troubleshoot already existing installations. The suite contains general-purpose computational fluid dynamics software and specialized products to address specific industry applications.


The Company's electronics product suite provides field simulation software for designing electronic and electromechanical products. The software streamlines the design process and predicts performance, all prior to building a prototype, of mobile communication and internet-access devices, broadband networking components and systems, integrated circuits (ICs) and printed circuit boards (PCBs), as well as electromechanical systems such as automotive components and power electronics equipment. The Company's software suite from Apache Design, Inc. (Apache) delivers power analysis and optimization platforms along with methodologies that manage the power budget, power delivery integrity and power-induced noise in an electronic design, from initial prototyping to system sign-off. These solutions deliver accuracy with correlation to silicon measurement; the capacity to handle an entire electronic system including IC, package, and PCB; efficiency for ease-of-debug and fast turnaround time; and comprehensiveness to facilitate cross-domain communications and electronic ecosystem enablement.


The Company delivers system simulation capability that is used for the design of automated products. This collaborative environment leverages the Company's multiphysics, multibody dynamics, circuit and embedded software simulation capabilities, enabling users to simulate the interactions between components, circuits and control software within a single environment. Systems include Multiphysics and Embedded Software. The Company's multiphysics product suite allows engineers and designers to create virtual prototypes of their designs operating under real-world multiphysics conditions. ANSYS multiphysics software enables engineers and scientists to simulate the interactions between structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow and electromagnetics all within a single, unified engineering simulation environment. The Company's SCADE product suite from Esterel Technologies, S.A. (Esterel) is a solution for embedded software simulation and code production. It has been developed for use in critical systems with high dependability requirements, including aerospace, rail transportation, nuclear and industrial applications. SCADE software supports the entire development workflow, from requirements analysis and design, through verification, implementation and deployment.


The Company's academic product suite provides portfolio of academic products based on several usage tiers such as associate, research and teaching. Each tier includes various noncommercial products that bundle a range of physics and advanced coupled field solver capabilities. The academic product suite provides entry-level tools intended for class demonstrations and hands-on instruction. It includes flexible terms of use and more complex analysis suitable for doctoral and post-doctoral research projects. The Company also provides a low-cost product for student use, away from the classroom.
