CAD/CAE Design Technology for Reliability and Quality

Training  "Probabilistic Simulation"

The basics and methods will be communicated for probabilistic simulation with the software OptiY®. Concurrently, the course contains also practical exercises for challenges  of CAD/CAE-engineers in the industry.
