Simulation for Everyone: Techniques to Help Democratize Simulation - White Paper

"While simulation provides huge advantages, it also has limitations. One is the complexity of tools that are required to run simulations. We want to empower every engineer with simulation tools that are easy to use and adopt, but also ensure that those tools provide accurate results that can be adopted by engineers at all levels.

In this presentation, we are proposing a UCD methodology as a means to improve engineering simulation software design. The UCD method, when followed, is proven to improve the user experience for legacy users while also making simulation easy for engineers new to the field."
