Uncertainty Quantification

MSCOneXT is an extension to MSCOne, providing access to an ever-evolving suite of software tools that have been developed by MSC Software’s technology partners to complement the solution portfolio within the MSCOne token system. One such software is SmartUQ which has tools useful for uncertainty quantification (UQ) which allows the user to interpret the variability in the design lifecycle. 



Predictive Analytics Software for Working in the Uncertain World 

SmartUQ is a powerful predictive analytics and uncertainty quantification (UQ) software tool that incorporates real world variability and probabilistic behaviour into engineering and systems analyses. It was built from the ground up to solve some of the most challenging analytics problems faced by manufacturing companies, in industries like Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Turbomachinery, Heavy Equipment, Medical Device, Semiconductors, Energy, Oil & Gas, Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and Consumer Products.

  • Applications
    - Acceleration of simulation efforts

    - Testing and evaluation planning

    - Optimize decision making under uncertainty

    - Real system applications

    - Model calibration and validation

    - Digital Twins/Thread

    - Additive manufacturing

    - Root cause analysis
  • Easy to use software
    - User-Friendly GUI - Powerful, yet intuitive, SmartUQ is designed for Engineers and Data Scientists alike. SmartUQ’s clean, straightforward user interface, including software wizards, makes performing complex analyses easier than ever before.

    - Integration - Analytics software is only as powerful as it is compatible with other systems. SmartUQ has built-in integrations with MSC Software products like Adams, Digimat, and Nastran. Additionally, with SmartUQ’s application programming interface (API), you can seamlessly integrate SmartUQ tools into your workflow. SmartUQ’s API significantly reduces time spent on performing analyses while still providing the full benefits of its GUI.

    - Automated Predictive Modelling - With an existing data set or a connected simulation model, SmartUQ runs, builds, and compares predictive models until it meets your accuracy requirements.
  • Benefits
    Save Time

    - Reduce duration of simulation and testing
    - Catch problems early, reducing development time
    - Prevent unnecessary design iterations

    Decrease Costs

    - Increased utility of simulations
    - Fewer tests & prototypes
    - Reduce cost associated with unexpected failures

    Improve Quality and Reduce Risk

    - Validate that the simulation agrees with reality
    - Maximize Product Reliability and Durability
    - Meet oversight requirements (FAA, FDA, DoD)

UQ Goes Beyond Uncertainty Propagation

In addition to propagating input uncertainties, Uncertainty Quantification provides a more comprehensive framework, including several key analytics techniques:

  • Modern Design of Experiment tools designed to efficiently collect data from simulation, physical testing, or digital twins.
  • Unique Data Sampling tools for subsampling or dividing large data sets into evenly distributed batches to build large-scale machine learning models.
  • Flexible Predictive Modelling and Machine Learning  tools to cover a wide range of scenarios including high dimensional problems, large sample sizes, spatial data, and functional/transient responses.
  • Statistical Calibration tools to determine model calibration parameters even with limited simulation and test data and provide model discrepancy to improve simulation and perform model validation.
  • Inverse Analysis tool to calculate the probability distribution of inputs based on a set of outputs from a system, helping verify hard-to-measure system properties.
  • Sensitivity Analysis library to rapidly determine which factors have a relatively low or high impact on the outputs, allowing engineers to focus efforts appropriately.
  • Optimization library handles multiple objectives and accommodates very large numbers of inputs.
