Product Engineering Optimizer (PEO)

Accelerates design alternative exploration and optimization for better design in less time

Product designs that continue to use physical prototypes are more prone to errors, delays, and increased costs. However, choosing a solution with built-in knowledge ensures your product conforms to various standards, helping you to work faster and design right.

CATIA Product Engineering Optimizer provides an interactive environment for modeling and solving complex engineering problems. Early in the conceptual design stage, it is often necessary to find solutions to an engineering problem by trying to satisfy a set of engineering constraints, while fulfilling the requirements for the product definition and behaviors. CATIA Product Engineering Optimizer allows users to model those constraints as a set of equations and inequations, as well as to interact with the model in order to discover solutions to a given problem.



  • Perform geometry-based optimizations.
  • Run finite element-based optimizations.
  • Execute “Design of Experiment” techniques to provide useful information about the product's behavior to help solve compromises.
  • Capture optimizations within the model’s feature tree to launch the optimization again after any design changes.
  • Solve problems with constraints satisfaction.
