CORTIME to Unveil SOLIDWORKS-Embedded Robust Design Analysis

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Jan 30, 2019 – CORTIME will unveil their SOLIDWORKS-embedded robust design analysis at SOLIDWORKS World 2019, being held February 10-13, 2019 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Robust design is used to determine the impact of controllable and uncontrollable factors on your design. Optimal designs can be “fragile” in terms of variation of material properties and operating conditions, however, robust design accounts for the variation to avoid cliffs of optimal performance. This means that you will be able to quantify the risk of design failure and avoid nasty surprises later in process.

On a practical level, this means that the R&D Engineer can use the probability of failures as objectives, when optimizing their designs. On the bottom line, this means fewer design failures and a shortened development cycle.

“CORTIME has completed the circle in creating the full package of design exploration tools. Essential questions: “How can I simplify my design? Have I found the best design? Will the design fail once it hits production?” CORTIME answers these questions for R&D Engineers,” says CORTIME CEO, Rasmus Høtoft.

VELUX is a world leading manufacturer of roof windows and skylights and is currently using CORTIME to improve the performance of their window designs. So, while VELUX is already reaping the benefits of design optimization in CORTIME, they are excited for the prospect of adding robust design to their design process.

“At VELUX, we are constantly striving to raise the bar in terms of product performance and usability. CORTIME’s robust design analysis can potentially reduce our development time and costs by assessing the risk of design failure early in our design process,” says Michael Galsgård Holm, R&D engineer at VELUX.

Come by booth 228 at SOLIDWORKS World 2019 and see how CORTIME provides you the whole, integrated design exploration suite including sensitivity analysis, design optimization and robust design.


CORTIME is a design exploration and data analysis tool for SOLIDWORKS. Founded in 2013, the purpose of the company is to help product developers make data-based design decisions, early in the process. Currently, CORTIME is exclusively integrated into SOLIDWORKS (including SOLIDWORKS Simulation) but welcomes partners interested in integrating their software with CORTIME. Anyone with a SOLIDWORKS license can experience CORTIME themselves by downloading the software at
