Siemens PLM Generative Design
Generative design is an engineering process in which a human designer collaborates with artificial intelligence algorithms to generate and evaluate hundreds of potential designs for a product idea.
The generative design process starts with defining the goals and constraints of the project. These include, but are not limited to, design parameters such as:
• product size or geometric dimensions
• permissible loads and operating conditions
• target weight
• manufacturing methods
• cost per unit
These parameters are fed into an artificial intelligence algorithm, which then generates all the feasible designs and runs a performance analysis for each. Human engineers evaluate the AI's suggested designs and use the best ones to fabricate prototypes.
By using generative design, engineers can create and simulate thousands of designs (many of which they may not have envisioned on their own) in a fraction of the time it would normally take. As additional benefit, the generative design process can yield highly customized complex shapes as the best solutions – which can be cast or processed through high-resolution additive manufacturing.
