Exa Corp. has launched an upgrade to its results generation, analysis, and reporting program, PowerINSIGHT, which allows users to optimize product performance early in the development process by automating the analysis and sharing of simulation results—fostering improved collaboration between engineering and design teams. PowerINSIGHT 2.0 enables real-time, side-by-side comparison of results from multiple runs, and efficiently packages content. It processes terabytes of big data and automatically generates reports and PowerPoint presentations that include renderings and animations of the simulation results. Simulation data can be shared immediately, enhancing early-stage communication and collaboration. Exa’s software, which simulates fluid flow, aeroacoustics, and heat transfer, enables what the company calls “simulation-driven design,” providing a highly accurate analysis of performance in real-world conditions and allowing for actionable feedback and insight on how to improve the design.
