The tactical application of optimization provides local efficiencies throughout a product development program to improve a design through topology, down gauging, or size and shape studies. A strategic implementation of optimization allows organizations to design lightweight in early instead of engineering mass out late.

A key characteristic of broad optimization initiatives is investment in the generation of accurate loads early in the design process. MotionSolve enables concept structural optimization to be based on simulated loads of new mechanisms instead of carry over data. Improved concepts reduce business risks of potential downstream product development issues at a high cost.
