By Jenni Barsotti - Siemens PLM

The Release of HEEDS 2310 brings upgraded and new technology designed to streamline and expedite your optimization and design space exploration journey. With a significant focus on accelerating speed without compromising accuracy, this release marks a significant leap forward in achieving optimal design outcomes. Additionally, the integration of advanced AI capabilities and seamless data management functionalities ensures a progressive and intuitive experience for users across various industries and applications.

Go Faster: HEEDS AI Simulation Predictor

HEEDS AI Simulation Predictor is a revolutionary feature in HEEDS 2310 – a performance booster for SHERPA. HEEDS AI Simulation Predictor is an add-on module for HEEDS, boosting SHERPA with AI to enhance its state-of-the-art search technology, such as to operate at even greater speeds. This accelerator is intended for HEEDS users seeking to expedite their search processes for time-consuming CAE analyses or when lengthy optimisations need to be performed.

HEEDS AI Simulation Predictor empowers users by enabling accuracy-aware AI as part of the hybrid-adaptive search framework, to actively learn and enhance the current search as well as learning for future design processes. It offers a significant reduction in design optimization time while maintaining the same design budget, when applicable. Comparable results to SHERPA are achievable, with the added potential for even faster performance. The best just got better! Save up to 40% on computational time for lengthy optimizations!  Additionally, this new technology allows the re-utilization of prior data, providing valuable insights for designing new products and systems, ultimately saving time and costs.

You don’t need AI expertise – this cutting-edge technology seamlessly integrates into your existing workflows, accelerating computationally intensive CAE simulations around the SHERPA search framework. HEEDS AI Simulation Predictor allows you to either finish tasks faster or tackle more simulations within the same timeframe. In either case, leveraging HEEDS you are now able to discover better designs, even faster!

Explore the possibilities: Enhancements to HEEDS POST

HEEDS POST External Data Import in HEEDS 2310 streamlines design decisions by seamlessly integrating external data into the post-processor. This versatile feature allows immediate data import or appending, harnessing HEEDS POST’s post-processing techniques without the necessity of a HEEDS project.

With this release, HEEDS POST becomes a standalone data analytics and post-processing tool to work with data coming from anywhere. Facilitate data mining, gain insight and discovery, generate reports of your findings, export your learnings, and generate reduced order models for HEEDS MDO or external use. This expansion to easy incorporation of data from non-HEEDS project sources, broadens data applicability support, empowering informed engineering decisions and uncovering valuable insights for robust designs.

Stay integrated: HEEDS portal versions

In HEEDS 2310, process automation takes a leap forward with the introduction of portal versions. HEEDS is renowned for its process automation capabilities, anchored by portal technology, which automates parameterization, execution, and results extraction from simulation tool models.

Configuring portals in HEEDS is a straightforward task, as you simply specify your tool’s location and the key options for your workflow. However, what if you’re dealing with multiple versions of the same tool, or you have different versions on various compute resources?

HEEDS 2310 addresses these questions, with a streamlined solution via support for portal versioning. Effortlessly configure any tool version for both local and remote execution, define versions specific to chosen compute resources, and quickly deploy the required version. Now with specification of specific versions for portals on various resources, it is easier than ever before to incorporate your tools into simple and complex workflows.

This feature grants you the flexibility to select the appropriate portal version for your workflow and compute resource, streamlining your workflow with compute resources.


HEEDS 2310 is set to revolutionize your engineering design journey in a way that’s not just an enhancement, but a true game-changer! Go faster by harnessing the power of SHERPA and acceleration of AI. Explore the possibilities by unlocking expanded data capabilities to uncover valuable insights. Stay integrated by simplifying portal management to streamline your workflow with your compute resources.

Discover better designs, even faster, with HEEDS 2310!
