SIA, Chinese Academy of Sciences select Nexus for research

Shenyang Institute of Automation (SIA), Chinese Academy of Sciences have selected Nexus from iChrome to assist in their research and also to use in their classrooms. iChrome, a leading provider of engineering services and optimization solutions, announced today that SIA have selected Nexus, as their design optimization and process integration solution of choice. Nexus, provides the latest standard in advanced numerical optimization, through a flexible and reliable framework to integrate design processes, as well as organizing, managing and solving complex design tasks.

Asim Majid, Director at iChrome explains “optimization and process integration has become a crucial part of computer aided engineering. It not only increases the benefits achieved from using established simulation applications (CFD, FEA, CAD etc…) but also helps to fully utilise the hardware that organisations invest heavily in. iChrome is developing an academic programme with universities to help students learn more about design optimization and become familiar with software tools that are related to the area.

iChrome’s Nexus is increasingly being chosen by different industries to provide process integration and optimization solutions without the high costs associated with other established commercial products.For more information on Nexus and iChrome, please do not hesitate to contact us.
