Simcenter CAE Simulation

Simcenter lets you predict the performance of your 3D geometry-based designs. In our Simcenter 3D CAE products, you can import geometry from any CAD source and prepare analysis models in a unified environment for a wide range of CAE methods including finite element, boundary element, computational fluid dynamics, and multi-body dynamics.

Simcenter’s integrated high-end, multidiscipline solutions are scalable for use by general CAE analysts and discipline experts. Additionally, by linking 3D simulation to Simcenter’s 1D and testing solutions, you can achieve unmatched accuracy.


HEEDS is a powerful design space exploration and optimization software package that interfaces with all commercial computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools to drive product innovation. HEEDS accelerates the product development process by automating analysis workflows (Process Automation), maximizing the available computational hardware and software resources (Distributed Execution), and efficiently exploring the design space for innovative solutions (Efficient Search), while assessing the new concepts to ensure performance requirements are met (Insight & Discovery).

Simcenter System Simulation

Address the complexity of smart, automated, and electrified products that bring together mechanics, electrics, electronics, and controls. Optimize system performance earlier in the design process, improve product quality and reduce development time and costs.

Using Simcenter system simulation solutions, you can evaluate and balance potentially conflicting performance attributes (such as thermal management, operability, drivability or fuel efficiency) from the early development stages until the final performance validation and controls calibration. To deal with an increased number of requirements, use cases, and architectural variants, you can rapidly create heterogeneous system simulation architectures and share your models with the global engineering team.
