Driven Parameter

Use Driven Parameter to tie a measure to a Creo Parametric parameter. The parameters you use for Creo Simulate measures must be dependent parameters. Defining parameter-based measures enables you to use Creo Parametric parameters as goals or limits for optimization studies and to obtain study results for a parameter.

You can use parameter-based measures to:

• Obtain analysis and study results specific to a Creo Parametric parameter—You can use parameter-based measures to obtain analysis and study results specific to a given parameter.

• Obtain analysis and study results for a specialized Creo Parametric quantity—Creo Parametric computes certain values that fall outside the realm of Creo Simulate.

• Set up optimization limits—You can use a parameter-based measure as the limit for an optimization study. You use this functionality when you want to run an optimization based on a regeneration analysis or want to define a limit not normally available through Creo Simulate, such as a dimensional limit.

• Set up parameters for use with regeneration analyses—A regeneration analysis is a predefined analysis that regenerates your Creo Parametric part. Regeneration analyses do not utilize several of Creo Simulate's more resource-intensive functions. This type of analysis, therefore provides very rapid results.
