Vanderplaats Research & Development, Inc., the choice of leading automotive design optimization teams, renames itself OmniQuest to fulfil the mission of making design optimization commonplace.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. – Vanderplaats Research & Development, Inc., the global leader in automotive engineering design optimization, is now OmniQuest ™ with the slogan On A Quest For the Best ™. The move to the OmniQuest ™ brand acknowledges the maturing of design optimization, a field pioneered and perfected over the previous half-century through the leadership of OmniQuest ™ Chairman & Founder Dr. Garret N. Vanderplaats.

“Preparing to make Optimization commonplace, we had to accomplish research and client-focused development in parallel with advancement of computing technology,” Dr. Vanderplaats said. “The OmniQuest ™ name reflects our vision of optimization being applied by anyone for any journey,” said Vanderplaats.

OmniQuest empowers the design engineer to automatically determine design variable values that deliver products optimized for performance, quality, and the best use of available resources. There are no other commercial offerings available for the engineer to enlist computing power exploring so many aspects of design.

OmniQuest achieved this differentiation through decades of narrow focus on engineering structural design optimization within the automotive industry; no other software provider has focused exclusively on this single
category for this amount of time.

OmniQuest is a team of design engineers delivering the most powerful optimization tools for engineering designers. The OmniQuest brand focuses on the company’s relentless drive to deliver the highest quality software that is the most powerful, most easy, and most affordable to use.

“As a close partner to Vanderplaats Research & Development, Inc. for nearly 20 years, the OmniQuest rebranding represents an exciting milestone in the company’s relentless ambition to be global leaders in optimization technology,” said Martin Gambling, Managing Director GRM Consulting Ltd. “For GRM’s customers, the renaming to OmniQuest represents a broader drive to deliver optimization products in a format that is easier to integrate and use.” Gambling said.

“Faithfully responding to client needs fueled our turning Dr. Vanderplaats’ theory to reality,” adds OmniQuest President Juan Pablo Leiva. “GENESIS® Structural Analysis & Optimization Software and ILIADTM Design Exploration Automation Studio, developed and perfected over decades, while fully appreciated by our longtime clients, sometimes appear to new clients as magical automation,” said Leiva.

The OmniQuest name signals the beginning of extending optimization capabilities across industries. OmniQuest ™ enables anyone to be On A Quest For The BestTM. For more information visit, email, or call (248) 596-1611
