optiSLang - Robust Design Optimization Software

optiSLang together with VirtualLab Fusion offers efficient methods of Robust Design Optimization for solving your tasks in computer aided optical engineering

optiSLang is a software for

  • sensitivity analysis
  • multiobjective and multidisciplinary optimization
  • robustness evaluation
  • reliability analysis and
  • Robust Design Optimization.

It has been well established in many fields of engineering during the last decade, see the homepage of optiSLang for more detailed information. VirtualLab Fusion provides an interface to optiSLang which allows to use VirtualLab Fusion and optiSLang together for challenging design tasks in optics. Contact us to start a pilot project or to evaluate the software package. LightTrans is the official distributor for both, VirtualLab Fusion and optiSLang.  

Workflow of Robust Design Optimization with optiSLang.

Robust Design Optimization (RDO) in Virtual Product Development

What would be your benefit if you knew to what extent your product development comes close to a reliable economic optimum? How robust is your design in reality?

Conducting a sensitivity analysis, multidisciplinary optimization, robustness evaluation and reliability analysis with optiSLang enables you to:

  • quantify risks
  • identify optimization potential
  • improve product performance
  • secure resource-efficiency
  • save time to market

optiSLang automatically identifies the relevant input and output parameters and quantifies the forecast quality with the help of  the Coefficient of Prognosis ( CoP) and the Metamodel of Optimal Prognosis (MOP). A predictable prognosis quality is the key to an efficient optimization. Thus, a "no run too much" philosophy can be implemented to minimize solver calls. As a consequence, even optimization tasks involving a large number of variables, scattering parameter as well as non-linear system behavior can be solved. optiSLang’s Best-Practice-Management automatically selects the appropriate algorithms, such as gradient methods, genetic algorithms, evolutionary strategies or Adaptive Response Surface Methods. Furthermore, all methods of optimization and stochastic analysis can be combined in regard to the particular task. optiSLang makes you ready to meet the full range of parametric studies to innovate and accelerate your virtual product development.

Sensitivity Analysis

By means of a global sensitivity analysis and the automatic generation of the Metamodel of Optimal Prognosis (MOP), optimization potential and the corresponding important variables are identified. With this previous knowledge, task-related objective functions and constraints can be defined as well as suitable algorithms can be selected. [more...]

Multi-objective Optimization

Multi-objective optimization is applied if multiple conflicting objectives occur. Considering these objectives simultaneously leads to a set of Pareto optimal solutions for choosing the best production design. [more...]

Robustness Evaluation

optiSLang quantifies the robustness of designs by generating a set of possible design realizations on the basis of scattering input variables. Optimized Latin Hypercube Sampling and the quantification of the prognosis quality of the result variation by the Coefficient of Prognosis (CoP) ensure the reliability of the variation and correlation values with a minimum of design calculations.

Robust Design Optimization (RDO)

The Robust Design Optimization (RDO) combines CAE-based optimization with robustness evaluation and allows a product optimization with a synchronized assurance of robustness. optiSLang provides iterative as well as simultaneous methods for variance-based and reliability-based RDO including tasks conforming to Design for Six Sigma (DFSS). [more...]
