Opera is a general-purpose multiphysics simulation suite for the design of electromagnetic and electromechanical devices. Its accuracy and versatility allows for its use in a wide variety of applications. Users can record a sequence of operations to automate their particular design process. Or users can make use of the Opera Application Environments – a suite of application-specific design automation modules. The Environments have been created by the Opera Applications Team, capturing the application knowledge and best-practices of some of the foremost users of Opera. The Environments allow users to become productive in minimum time, and concentrate on what’s important – design improvement – rather than on learning and driving a general-purpose FEA system.
