Why Do Design Engineers Need a Simulation Solution?

How do you know if you should be using simulation? Consider for a moment:

  • If you could save 7% of your material costs, would it help?
  • How would getting to market 14% faster improve your business?
  • What would you do with the extra time?
  • Would higher quality without adding cost or time make your products more competitive?

These are some of the many things simulation can help with. Even better, advancements to simulation tools have made it much easier for design engineers to adopt. In fact, Tech-Clarity’s latest simulation survey reveals that at 90% of Top Performing companies, design engineers use simulation software.

The key is selecting the right solution. This Buyers Guide reveals what to look for in a simulation solution for design engineers.


  • Understand your needs for a simulation solution
  • Justify the investment with a focus on how it will empower design engineers to make better decisions that will make products more competitive, lower-cost, and faster to market
  • Select a simulation solution that will be easy for design engineers to adopt that will integrate with your existing CAD tool and support existing workflows
  • Consider a solution that makes it easy to set up an analysis and includes features such as automated mashing
  • Ensure the solution supports design optimization
  • Select a solution and vendor that can offer the right training resources to reduce the learning curve
