Partner Spotlight: Altair and Ontonix Offer Complexity Management Solution

OntoNet™, the world’s first complexity quantification and management system, is now accessible through Altair’s HyperWorks Partner Alliance.


OntoNet™ is a desktop tool that allows engineers to measure the complexity and robustness of components or systems. It processes the results of Monte Carlo Simulations, DOE, optimization or sensitivity analyses to compute the values of system complexity and robustness, enabling engineers to exploit their expansive amounts of existing data to the fullest extent and achieve simpler, more robust designs. It works in conjunction with MAPVIEW™ and produces a report, containing the Complexity Profile of a system and the corresponding System Map.


“If CAE is to cope with the inevitable increase of product complexity, then complexity must enter the CAE loop. High complexity is a prelude to inefficiency and vulnerability; therefore it becomes necessary to use a measure of product complexity as a design attribute, said Dr. Jacek Marczyk, founder and CTO of Ontonix. “Technology developed by Ontonix allows engineers to conceive new solutions and designs while effectively quantifying and managing the risks associated with overly complex systems.”
