optiSLang E-learning courses

Dynardo's E-learning program offers you a quick and efficient way to getting started with optiSLang.

Individual courses will show you how to set up your solver chain and how to perform a sensitivity analysis, optimization, robustness evaluation or model calibration with the help of optiSLang's software package. The training units will explain to you the technical usage of the user interface by setting up several training examples and will give you an overview of the theoretical background and best practices of the methodology.

Individual E-learning units can be chosen separately or as a package offer.
