Adams/Controls help control system developers eliminate the need to write complex equations of motion for mechanical plants. The software enables users to graphically model mechanical systems, containing a variety of constraints and force types as well as parts of arbitrary shape, then directly integrate their Simulink - developed control system models within these mechanical system designs. Users can then simulate their systems' full-motion behavior from within the Simulink environment and visualize the results using animations and plotting.
The Adams suite of tools allows virtual prototyping and virtual testing -- the ability to build and test your complex products in the computer before committing to expensive and time-consuming physical prototyping and testing. Employing an interactive graphical environment and libraries of components, joints, and forces, Adams enables engineers to parametrically model 3-D mechanical systems and study alternative designs as "virtual prototypes" by simulating and comparing realistic motion behavior.
