[Editor’s note. Traditionally, a company that wanted an analysis of a product design left it to the simulation experts—people who specialized in FEA and CFD. But with the introduction of in-CAD simulation technology (like Creo Simulate), design engineers can run their own studies on their models. The question is, should they?
We asked our simulation expert to weigh in on when to engage an expert, when to do it yourself, and how to make the most of any consultant you hire.]
