ELIMINATING THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE
Designing products can be relatively straightforward when they are simple, contain just a few parts and perform a single function — and when operating conditions can be perfectly controlled. But as every engineer knows, this is not the world in which we live, 2014.
Today’s products are more complex, and deliver more sophisticated functionality, than ever before. Consider the simple design and few moving parts of a rotary telephone versus the advanced engineering that goes into every smartphone.
While not all products have been transformed so dramatically, engineers in every industry recognize that their designs are growing in complexity. The integration of smart electronics in our everyday appliances and the increasingly digital nature of our cars represent just two very visible examples of a quiet revolution that has occurred in engineering over the past decade
Just as engineering has evolved from relying on paper calculations and physical experiments to leveraging computer simulation, our tools and methods must continue to evolve to reflect the incredible complexity of today’s products. Engineers can no longer be guided by even the most general assumptions about how their designs will perform — or focus on the one physical force that seems most important. Instead, they require a new toolset that brings together a full range of physical phenomena, accurately replicating the physical environment in which their designs will operate.
