Simulation-driven design can be defined as the use of simulation early in a product design process. This free report from Aberdeen examines best practices for earlier simulation that will accelerate product innovation, reduce costs, and improve the time-to-market and quality of products.

New challenges prove need for product design simulation
Manufacturers are constantly pressured to better understand product behavior during the design phase amidst increasing product complexity, tighter development budgets, and a competitive business environment. The need for greater innovation is critical, and it is a catalyst to create new market opportunities. On top of the need to innovate, there is immense pressure to differentiate products with better quality/reliability / richer functionality. Due to shortened development schedules and the need for quicker time-to-market, there is less time to develop innovative products. Siemens Accelerated Engineering initiative can help solve these issues as a whole.
Simulation-driven design boosts productivity
Aberdeen defines simulation-driven design as the use of simulation early in the design process, and the principle of simulation-driven design is simple. Because design engineers outnumber simulation experts by 5:1 or 10:1, workflows that isolate a simulation specialist group can lead to bottlenecks in the design process. Best-in-Class firms, defined by Aberdeen as the top 20% of companies based on their performance in self-reported metrics, have thus responded by introducing simulation directly into the design environment so they can eliminate bottlenecks in specialist teams. Tables to support this claim are included in the full PDF download of the report.
