Optimization Option

Optimus® - Optimus Process Integration and Design Optimization Software

Optimus has a direct interface with scSTREAM, scFLOW and SC/Tetra, and the optimization can be performed without any additional customization. It also supports a creation of an original GUI using API and an optimization using Quality Engineering (Taguchi Method).




Executes the processes automatically just by constructing a simulation workflow with icons.

Data Mining

Visualizes data immediately. Relationships between the parameters can be grasped easily from sensitivity and correlation analyses.


Optimization algorithm automatically searches the parameters yielding the best performance.

Robustness, Reliability

Predicts the variations in performance from the variations of parts. This enables the design with consideration on the variations in advance.

Optimus® for Cradle

Optimus® for Cradle is an optional tool which allows for the uses of optimization functions of Optimus directly on Software Cradle products. Optimization can be performed with ease, by inputting design variables and other parameters from the dedicated GUI*.

* Optimus for Cradle direct interface for scFLOW will be available in V2020
