WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
There have been many simulation advancements over the last decade, and one of the most promising is systems-level engineering. As products become more complex — such as cars with safety features, hybrid engines and smart electronics — ensuring product integrity, across every component, has never posed a greater challenge. Every assumption in a system, whether it relates to existing componentry, prematurely detailed CAD geometry or status-quo tenets, imposes constraints on innovation. These demands are increasingly difficult to tackle incrementally.
Thirty, 20 or even 10 years ago, the engineering community was often bound by pragmatism. Simulation wasn’t yet robust enough, so it took months or years of testing physical prototypes, because you had to be sure your design would work in the field. In areas of insufficient experience, designing conservatively was the best way to preserve brand quality.
Three decades ago, we couldn’t fully comprehend how computers would revolutionize the way we work, live and communicate. A similar revolution is afoot that will eliminate pragmatic bounds — much the way that desktop publishing and the Internet revolutionized information dissemination. We’ll be constrained only by our imagination. Think about how enabling it will be to make virtual changes in minutes, compared to not even considering it because it takes too long to evaluate in the real world.
