How Altair’s Display Manager Saves Workflow Time at Ping Golf

“Display Manager is our most significant functionality update since the move to HPC itself,” said Eric Morales, Engineer and Design Analyst at Ping Golf. “In most cases we are saving a full day of time or more. We get instant feedback, make the change and have enough time to view the results of those changes the same day. Before the upgrade we wouldn’t get those results until mid to late morning the next day, and wouldn’t get the updated structure until end of the next day. Display Manager has greatly improved the speed and efficiency of our process.”
