Shape optimisation takes the exterior of a car, for example, and shows whether you should push or pull on the surface to improve a given parameter, or set of parameters (drag, downforce, efficiency, balance, etc.). This delivers in a single run what would take many hundreds, or thousands, of CFD runs to deliver using traditional parametric techniques.
