Companies whose engineers use simulation software as they design products seem to get better results than their more traditional competitors. They find problems earlier (while they’re still cheap to fix), improve product quality, and cut product development time. Based on the data in this infographic, you would think there’s nothing to lose by adopting simulation.
But the truth is, many people remain unconvinced. That’s due largely to the perception that simulation and analysis are for specialists who have devoted their career to determining how a digital model will perform under stress.
