Simulation doesn't replace experience

Published: 01/20

It is a misconception that simulation can replace experience in making design solutions. No company should use simulation results to overrule an engineer’s experience in making a design decision. At the end of the day, engineers make design decisions. Simulation is no replacement for engineering ...

Can you replace prototyping with simulation?

Published: 01/20

No. To be perfectly clear, companies should not have any expectation that prototyping can be completely replaced with simulation. Every product should be physically tested to verify and validate the satisfaction of requirements, conformance to constraints, and performance against the engineer’s ...
