Deploying simulations earlier in the design process rather than later results in more innovative, high-quality products while also reducing production costs. The findings presented suggest that simulation-driven design allows Best-In-Class designers and firms to more effectively deliver the product to the consumer.
Key highlights of their research include:
In 2016, 87% of Best-in-Class organizations used simulation, up from 75% in 2014.
Best-in-Class senior management are 2.5 times more likely to support and monitor a corporate initiative for deployment of simulation to non-experts.
Best-in-Class design engineers built 27% fewer prototypes since deploying simulation-driven design.
Best-in-Class designers that have adopted simulation-driven design improved (shortened) the length of their development time by 29%.
