As it is difficult to predict with the ongoing COVID pandemic when in-person events will return, we have decided to
announce the 2021 WOST conference as a virtual event. We look forward to the day where we can put the pandemic
behind us and offer you a hybrid conference event, combining both virtual and live meeting benefits.
Since launching in 2003, Ansys optiSLang has established itself as one of the leading process integration and design
optimization (PIDO) software tools. During the WOST conference’s initial years, we focused on methods of optimization
and stochastic analysis and its impact on product optimization. Later, topics such as metamodeling, model calibration,
CAE process integration, automation and orchestration were added. Today, those PIDO technologies increasingly span
the entire product lifecycle, ranging from development to production to deployment.
Since 2019, we‘ve continued to develop the optiSLang product line within Ansys‘ platform strategy. This platform
combines leading-edge CAE solvers across all relevant physical domains. It features PIDO and simulation process data
management (SPDM) capabilities, services for connectivity and mapping between the different physics, services for
distribution, support for high-performance computing (HPC) and cloud computing.
Additionally, interoperability with third-party CAD, CAE and PLM solutions remains a pillar of Ansys‘ platform strategy.
Combining leading-edge, physics-based simulation environments with scalable platform components supports our
customer on their exciting path to digitalization, virtual product democratization, process optimization and digital
twins for predictive maintenance and enhancing asset operation. Lastly, the conference will spotlight real-world
success stories that discuss how customers scale parametric design studies for product and process optimization in
Following the positive attendee feedback we received from earlier WOST events, we will once again offer industry
workshops, in cooperation with industry partners.
This conference is for all engineering and decision makers who are involved in CAE-based product development
processes that leverage any kind of variation analysis.
We look forward to seeing you at our 2021 conference and receiving your contributions.
