Functions

Generalize frequently used workflows or assemblies into shareable functions

The Challenge

Most engineering workflows are frequently built and are not reusable if input specifications such as modifications in the geometry, material, or loading scenarios are changed.

  • Workflows are not built in a generalized way such that they can be adaptive to changes
  • Development processes are not just repetitive but also time-consuming with a lot of manual work and iterations
  • Workflows cannot be easily transferred to other projects or teams

Our Approach

Automate workflows and generalize them with the help of functions that are adaptive to different inputs.

1

INITIAL WORKFLOW

Create the initial workflow for the project, such as determining the support structure of a component

2

CONTAINERS

Define the data containers for the components that change from project to project, at the beginning and end of the workflows

3

FUNCTION

Register the containers at the beginning as inputs and those at the end as outputs of a function

4

CONSUME

Consume the defined function in other projects using the include function component

Your Value

Functions allow multiple users to create different workflows and consolidate them in an easily shareable form.

  • Organize workflows in a structured way and easily transfer them to different projects or teams
  • Enhance the readability of a workflow by condensing parts of the overall workflow into functions
  • Reduce errors by simplifying the debugging process and testing the functions individually
