It's hard to iterate quickly when your design is siloed across hundreds of models. A small change in a single model can cause downstream chaos, with teams not knowing that they're failing requirements until it's too late.
Flow takes your siloed data and models and integrates them into a single cohesive project. When an input or model is updated, changes propagate automatically through the entire system. This enables teams to track changes, share data, and iterate and optimise faster and with far more visibility and alignment than before.
Teams using Flow iterate in days not weeks, discover and resolve missed requirements 10x faster, and make better optimised products.
Flow enables engineering teams to learn and iterate in hours, not weeks by integrating different models and tools into one project seamlessly. Link together your engineering models and data to understand whether you are meeting your requirements and what each system is contributing to the whole. As new models become available, engineers can update their basic models with more sophisticated ones. Flow integrates with MATLAB, Python, Excel and a number of CAD packages. Custom integrations are available on demand.
Every time a model is updated, the new data will propagate though the system and immediately make you aware of any downstream failures. Use your dashboard to get a top-level view of the key values from the entire team: - core performance parameters, - mass and cost roll ups, - and key requirements. Set up notifications so you find out the moment you fail key requirements or standards.
Eliminate the sharing of data by email and focus your design reviews on actually reviewing your engineering together with the latest information. With Flow, each project has a connected repository of models, requirements, and data which means as soon as any model is updated, the new results automatically propagate to other systems. Downstream team members can choose to accept, test or reject the the latest values, saving hours and enabling much faster information propagation within a team.
Identify, understand and solve the root cause problems in your design rather than just patching the symptoms. Flow enables true agile engineering. Learn and iterate faster as a team - go from one iteration a week, to many smaller iterations a day. Enable your engineers to work much more efficiently in parallel.
Test ideas, new configurations or design changes in a way you never could before. Identify significant interactions and quantify sensitivity between parameters across teams to make well-informed decisions. Discover non-obvious optimums, tolerance stack-ups and competitive edges that only exist at the team level. Replace an input value (a motor) with multiple inputs (a list of motors) and see your design point turn into a design space in seconds.
Designing a series of optimised systems is easy - finding the right system-wide compromises to design a true global optimum is incredibly difficult. Flow gives your team the information they need to come together and move from many local optimums to one global optimum. Use Evolutionary Optimisation, Runge Kutta, or any other optimisation approach you want to automatically search a multi-dimensional design space, and give you several ideal options to select from.
