After completing a stress analysis, you can perform optimization analysis
to find the optimal value for one model dimension while satisfying a specified criterion. For example, you can find the optimal length of a part such that the von Mises stresses do not exceed a specified value. Optimization analysis is part of the Design Study in SolidWorks Simulation.
You must run the simulation, plot any results, and view or skip reports before you can perform optimization.
