ATHENS, February 1st, 2017 – ACE-Hellas® today introduced ACE OCP™, the first commercial Optimization Computing Platform in the world for cost reduction in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) market. This innovative tool, representing the future of Value Engineering, goes far beyond what was possible with traditional optimization techniques and encompasses state-of-the-art algorithms to automatically optimize any structure in order to reduce construction and/or material cost, by at least 10%, consistent with the required performance, reliability, quality and safety. ACE OCP is available as a plugin to SAP2000® / ETABS® 64-bit versions only.

ACE OCP features a seamless ribbon based interface that allows one click optimization, with automatic creation of all design variables and their respective bounds. Using intuitive menus, users can easily parameterize constraints to address even the most demanding engineering structures. ACE OCP delivers optimized results in an easy to read, evaluate, and compare report, following, numerous, independent iterations of analysis based on state-of-the-art solvers designed for that purpose.

This innovative platform provides professional engineers with the power and skill that was, previously, only available to large consulting enterprises and the world’s top universities. It harnesses technology to drive efficiency, increase performance and reduce cost while preserving safety excellence and lifecycle performance.

“Our company is the leader in structural optimization, pioneering the creation and use of this innovative platform,” said Dr. Dennis Ioakim, ACE-Hellas founder and chairman. “We intent to ignite a new era for value engineering by combining less cost with better safety, less waste with better quality and less energy with better performance.”


ACE OCP is available for download with a 7-day free trial through
