• PowerINSIGHT 2.0 provides real-time collaboration to reduce the risk of product compromise and costly late-stage design changes
  • Derives compelling presentations from terabytes of simulation data rapidly and accurately
  • Powerful, automated visualization tools facilitate communication between teams

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exa Corporation, the leading innovator of simulation software for product design and engineering, today launched an upgrade to its results generation, analysis and reporting program, PowerINSIGHT®. This completely revised software 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.
Exa PowerINSIGHT 2.0
Exa PowerINSIGHT allows users to fully leverage their data and share results with their engineering teams immediately - enhancing engineering communication and early stage design evaluation.

PowerINSIGHT 2.0 enables rapid, real-time, side-by-side comparison of results from multiple runs, and efficiently packages content, empowering engineers and designers to take insightful simulation-based decisions — quickly and efficiently. It processes terabytes of big data and automatically generates reports and PowerPoint® presentations that include compelling renderings and animations of the simulation results.

Simulation data can be shared immediately, enhancing early-stage communication and collaboration. The ability to understand the full implications of design and engineering choices at the beginning of product development can eradicate costly and time-consuming late-stage changes, which ultimately compromises final product performance.

"Simulation runs produce powerful insights for our customers, but they do result in massive amounts of data that can be time consuming to process using traditional software – leaving significant value on the table," remarked Stephen Remondi, President and CEO for Exa. "Engineering teams and designers need a common visual environment that allows them to demonstrate the true impact of their design alternatives. PowerINSIGHT 2.0 allows engineering and design teams to work together in real-time and focus on developing products without compromise."

Exa's software, which simulates fluid flow, aeroacoustics and heat transfer, enables the deployment of simulation as a strategic tool by encouraging collaboration early in the development process. The strategic use of this technology, known as 'simulation-driven design,' provides for a highly accurate analysis of performance in real-world conditions, and allows for actionable feedback and insight on how to improve the design — something not possible when simply employing traditional testing methods.
