Altair TECH BREW session: Streamlining Hypermesh & OptiStruct workflows through Low Code Engineering

Efficiency in product development is crucial for staying ahead in today's fast-paced technological landscape. One of the persistent challenges engineering teams face is the seamless integration of various processes such as requirements, CAD, simulation, optimization, and cost estimation. Often, the lack of smooth transitions between these processes leads to delays in design iterations and hampers the timely launch of products. However, a transformative solution is on the horizon — the concept of Low Code Engineering.

In this blog post, we will delve into the world of Low Code Engineering, particularly exploring the capabilities offered by Synera to automate and streamline workflows within HyperMesh and OptiStruct, as demonstrated in Altair's Tech Brew Session with Akhil Mora, Customer Success Engineer @Synera. By adopting a low code approach, engineering teams can reduce development time, enhance collaboration, improve agility, and boost innovation in product design.

The challenge: Disjointed workflows and design iteration delays

Traditional product development workflows often suffer from disjointed processes, causing bottlenecks in design iterations. Integrating CAD, simulation, and optimization tools can be time-consuming and error-prone, leading to inefficiencies and increased time-to-market. Addressing this challenge requires a paradigm shift in how engineering teams approach their workflows.

The solution: Low Code engineering with Synera

Synera's low code engineering platform offers a revolutionary solution to streamline complex workflows within HyperMesh and OptiStruct. Synera enables engineers to create, modify, and automate workflows with minimal coding effort by providing a visual development environment and pre-built components. This approach empowers teams to focus on innovation rather than getting bogged down by manual, repetitive tasks.

Key Benefits of Low Code Automation:

  1. Time Efficiency: Reduce development time significantly by automating repetitive tasks and eliminating manual errors. Low Code platforms like Synera facilitate the swift creation of automated workflows, enabling engineers to allocate more time to critical design and optimization tasks.
  2. Enhanced Collaboration: Break down silos between different engineering disciplines by fostering collaboration through a unified low code platform. Synera enables seamless integration between HyperMesh and OptiStruct, promoting better communication and understanding among team members.
  3. Agility and Adaptability: Respond to changing project requirements swiftly by quickly modifying or extending existing workflows. The low code approach allows for quick adjustments, ensuring the development process remains agile and adaptable to evolving project needs.
  4. Innovation Acceleration: Shift the focus from routine tasks to creative problem-solving and innovation. With low code automation handling repetitive processes, engineers can channel their expertise towards pushing the boundaries of design and optimization.

Reusing workflows for new projects

One of the remarkable features of Synera's low code platform is the ability to reuse existing workflows for new projects. This saves time and ensures consistency and reliability across different projects. Engineers can leverage proven workflows, making modifications as needed, and accelerate the development of new products without starting from scratch.


Integrating low code engineering into HyperMesh and OptiStruct workflows presents a transformative solution to the challenges faced in product development. Synera's platform empowers engineering teams to streamline processes, reduce development time, and foster innovation. By adopting a low code approach, organizations can position themselves at the forefront of technological advancement, delivering high-quality products to the market faster than ever before. Embrace the future of engineering with low code automation and witness the acceleration of your innovation journey.
