ANSYS develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software used to foresee how product designs will behave and how manufacturing processes will operate in real-world environments. We continually advance simulation solutions by, first, developing or acquiring the very best technology; then integrating it into a unified and customizable simulation platform that allows engineers to efficiently perform complex simulations involving the interaction of multiple physics; and, finally, providing system services to manage simulation processes and data — all so engineers and product developers can spend more time designing and improving products and less time using software and searching for data.

Engineering simulation is our sole focus. For more than 40 years, we have consistently advanced this technology to meet evolving customer needs.


Since its founding decades ago, ANSYS has evolved from a single office that housed a small group of engineers to an international corporation with offices on three continents. 

ANSYS is headquartered in the United States, south of Pittsburgh in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. We have more than 60 strategic sales locations throughout the world. In addition, ANSYS enlists a network of channel partners in more than 40 countries. Together the company fosters close partnerships with customers and provides local value-added service and support.


The ANSYS suite spans the entire range of physics, so customers can confidently assess how their designs will behave in a real-world environment — helping to ensure product success at the same time. Our software not only delivers efficiency, it drives innovation. The technology reduces or eliminates physical constraints, enabling simulated tests that might otherwise not be possible. It fosters what-if thinking so engineers can readily explore design alternatives for an optimal solution. We call this process Simulation-Driven Product Development.

Why are so many innovative companies choosing to partner with ANSYS? The answer is the ANSYS Advantages, which set our engineering simulation software apart from other CAE tools. Together, these principles help ensure that our portfolio adds value to the engineering design process, rather than a solution that only partially solves problems.

We extend functionality by partnering with independent software vendors, including computer-aided design (CAD) and product lifecycle management (PLM) developers as well as niche organizations that range from physics (such as acoustics) to optimization to materials data.

Finally, we partner with key hardware vendors to ensure you can get the most accurate solution in the fastest amount of time. The collaboration helps customers in all industries navigate the rapidly changing high-performance computing (HPC) landscape.
