AIDE™ - Advanced Integrated Design of Experiments


When developing ship design plans, having quick access to multiple design options is essential for evaluating the requirements and costs involved, benefits and projected return on investment (ROI). Better yet, Alion’s Advanced Integrated Design of Experiments (AIDE™) technology allows the comparison to be performed sooner, helping the design team target optimized solutions early on in the process.

Using a Design of Experiments approach, AIDE allows users to quickly maneuver through a selection of ship designs to analyze the value of each and also the impact of the change requirements to meet the design. Additionally, the decision aid provides cost and ROI feedback on design changes to present a clear view of the alternatives and further assist in the decision-making process.
