Altair HyperWorks

Engineering firms and companies with needs for multiple disciplines of analysis capabilities on a regular basis will benefit from HyperWorks. Companies with short term engineering needs (less than 6 months) or who only need a particular analysis/simulation discipline may be better off using a consultant (who likely uses HyperWorks).

Breakout

Breakout is great for streamlining processes keeping track of key things and also helps in setting accountability with the assign and collaborate feature.

Cons

Altair HyperWorks

  • User interface is improving, but not always intuitive; varies across tools
  • Steep learning curve
  • Cost may be out of reach for some, but relatively inexpensive if you need all the tools it includes (vs. paying for each tool individually)

Breakout

  • Would be great they could come up with iOS and android versions as well

Alternatives Considered

Altair HyperWorks

HyperWorks is far more capable than SOLIDWORKS Simulation offering more simulation solutions for more accurate analysis. The solvers are also more efficient so you get results faster and reduce time to market.

Breakout

Our organization had evaluated it for sometime, but it was on the higher side for the budget we had. Many of our departments used it for a while, even after the initial demo session many users from different departments had raised IT assistance requests. Keeping in mind these factors at hand we started exploring alternatives.

Return on Investment

Altair HyperWorks

  • An all in one solution keeps costs down if you need multiple analysis capabilities (FEA, CFD, MBD, etc.)
  • Analysis work supports our other engineering/design work we wouldn't otherwise receive
  • Fast and efficient solvers leads to higher throughput
Billy Wight | TrustRadius Reviewer

Breakout

  • Breakout is pretty affordable, the ROI has been great for us
