Summary:
Iowa State University researchers have developed a tool for simplification of designing and assessing complex parts, termed Advanced Systems Design Suite (ASDS). 

Development Stage:
ASDS is ready for commercialization, and ISU is seeking licensees for this technology.

Description:
Current  interfaces used for conceptual design complex products suffer from difficult to use interfaces, unnecessary inputs, and inability to handle the large amount of uncertainty present at this early stage of product design; moreover, these interfaces allow engineers to only investigate a small number of designs before moving onto more detailed phases of design.  To overcome these limitations, ISU researchers have developed ASDS, which can be used for initial product conceptualization with user-friendly interface that allows concepts to be created and assessed in minutes with a set of tools to compute center of gravity, tipping angle, wheel loading, and measurements.  In addition, full CAD models can be decimated and imported into ASDS for conceptual manipulation.  ASDS also includes a virtual reality component in which engineers and designers can view concepts in full immersive, stereoscopic 3D.

Advantage:
• Easy to use interface
• Pre-processed CAD files can be imported to evaluation and conceptualization
• Enables design concepts to be viewed in immersive VR environment
• Minimal expertise needed for use
Application:
Manufacturing; product lifecycle management
