Prototyping and simulation enable engineers to test their designs before creating a physical product. This typically results in cost savings, safer testing and early detection of design flaws. Design testing via simulation and/or physical testing are considered best practice; however, reality and theory often conflict.
We wanted to understand the use of simulation and its place in the whole design cycle, from concept to manufacturing. In this engineering.com research report, we asked 329 engineers, designers, product managers and other readers to report on simulation and physical testing.
In this report, you will learn:
- The top barriers to simulation facing engineers today
- The top concerns with testing options
- How a company’s size impacts their simulation methods
- And much more
