Aberdeen Group's Simulation Strategy Guide: Making Sense of Engineering Analysis and Today's Solution Provider Offerings - White Paper
The use of simulation early to direct product development decisions and get performance "right the first time" initially emerged more than a decade ago. The concept behind this strategy is that assessing product performance earlier, before designs have been finalized means that issues can be resolved while there are more options available to resolve them. Fast forward to the present, and early simulation is not only the most popular strategy for executives steering Best-in-Class engineering organizations, it's also the most differentiated strategy. And while Laggard engineering organizations are planning on making changes, fast, the dynamic landscape of solution providers can make for dizzying simulation software decisions.
