Sentient Science Adds Product Life Prediction Tool to Altair Partner Alliance

DigitalClone will help APA users predict life and performance of bearings, gears, and drivetrains using new prognostics technology

TROY, Mich., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) today announced the expansion of its offering with the addition of material failure prediction software DigitalClone, by Sentient Science. The first of its kind to be offered within the program, DigitalClone™ will allow HyperWorks users to better control product lifecycles by predicting failure probability throughout the design process.  

The web-based software, DigitalClone Component™, determines the future life and performance of rotating components including bearings, gears, and splines. Design and testing teams can interrogate DigitalClone material microstructure models to test the variance of a product's reliability under trade studies such as different duty cycles, materials, lubricants, and surface treatments.  This capability enables much more testing of product performance and reliability within program budget and time.

"Sentient provides Altair customers with failure prediction and life extension for their mechanical components and systems within product development, within test, and in fielded assets in real operating conditions," said Ward Thomas, President of Sentient Science. "For the first time, we can help both OEMs & Operators understand the behavior of their rotating assets and how to control them for maximum efficiencies, delivered over the Industrial Internet. The APA will not only allow Sentient's current customers the ability to access DigitalClone software on Altair's HyperWorks license manager, but also provide Sentient with the addition of many new customers, through Altair's global sales team."

DigitalClone Component will be released in two Phases with the APA.  Today, the Phase I of the DigitalClone Component simulator will allow users to manipulate public fixed geometry DigitalClone models selecting from an existing library including bearings, gears and drivetrain components.  In addition, users may also be able to purchase consulting services from Sentient Science and Altair to develop their custom DigitalClone models. To learn more about this opportunity, email the APA and Sentient Science teams.  At the Phase II launch, DigitalClone Component users in HyperWorks will have the option to independently build their own custom DigitalClone models within the APA offering.

"Altair's new partnership with Sentient Science is an exciting and promising opportunity that we are looking forward to growing," said Brett Chouinard, Chief Operating Officer at Altair. "Altair demands the highest quality and accuracy from our solvers and solutions.  The addition of DigitalClone's product life-cycle prediction capabilities to the Altair Partner Alliance provides yet another dimension to this client commitment."

Sentient Science has built DigitalClone models in industries from energy to aerospace to automotive and has both validation data and test cases to share with Altair customers worldwide. Stay tuned as Sentient plans to increase its presence in the Altair Partner Alliance later this year.

Available for the last 13 years, Altair's innovative unit-based licensing system allows HyperWorks users customizable access to a growing portfolio of applications, optimizing their return on investment (ROI) by making more than 20 in-house developed applications available by use of a single pool of recyclable HyperWorks units (HWUs).

After experiencing this original licensing model's success, Altair has offered the opportunity for third-party companies to run their own applications under this unit-based system, a collaboration now known as the Altair Partner Alliance. The overall flexibility of these HWUs empowers users via access to the largest, most complete suite of CAE applications available. The ROI increases for users each time a new application is added to the offering, since any of the partner programs can be accessed using the same leased HWUs they are already using to run HyperWorks. This makes more than 60 additional applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.

For more information about Sentient Science and DigitalClone, attend the introductory webinar being held on March 26, 2014 at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm EST. HyperWorks users can download DigitalClone at www.altairalliance.com/digitalclone.

About Sentient Science

Sentient Science, founded in 2001, is an independent company based both in New York and Idaho. It uses its proprietary software and sensor technology to deploy patent pending algorithms that can predict, with a high degree if accuracy, the future life of a component based on its composition material. Additionally and uniquely the company allows a true what-if capability as its users can "test" the implication of various compositions and lubricants before the component exists and while it is in a virtual state.  The Sentient team, composed by a majority of PhDs, is committed to developing technology that cost effectively improves machinery design, testing, manufacturing, and maintenance.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

As popularity of the smart home is growing and continues to go mainstream, technological factors play a greater role. The IoT protocol houses the interoperability battery consumption, security, and configuration of a smart home device, and it can be difficult for companies to choose the right kind for their product. For both DIY and professionally installed smart homes, developers need to consider each of these elements for their product to be successful in the market and current smart homes.
In the fast-paced advances and popularity in cloud technology, one of the most critical factors revolves around concerns for security of your critical data. How to assure both your company and your customers they can confidently trust and utilize your cloud environment is most often top on the list. There is a method to evaluating and providing security that exceeds conventional modes of protecting data both within the cloud as well externally on mobile and other devices.
