The ANSYS 12.0 software suite from ANSYS supports simulation-driven product development. It offers fast product design and validation in a complete, highly usable virtual environment that captures complex and coupled physical phenomena. ANSYS 12.0 allows engineers to access a depth and breadth of technology to compress their design processes and to create innovative products both rapidly and cost-effectively while reducing the time and money invested in physical prototype development and testing. Smart Engineering Simulation from ANSYS 12.0 compresses design and analysis cycles, enabling parametric studies and design optimization across multiple physics, increasing the accuracy and completeness of virtual prototypes, and capturing and reusing simulation processes and data. ANSYS 12.0 can be configured for advanced or professional users, deployed to a single user or enterprise, and executed on laptops or massively parallel computer clusters.
