This public resource center contains information related to a movement gaining momentum throughout the simulation world – the Democratization of Simulation. Why is the Automation of Simulation Processes important to achieving democratization? Here are some benefits that the automation can bring:
It is the ability for non-experts to safely run complex simulations that will achieve the Democratization of Simulation. Simulation Templates and the Vertical Applications (Simulation Apps or SimApps) that drive them, if well-designed and safely usable by the broader product development team, have been shown to democratize the use of simulation, and could result in a 5- to 10-fold increase in the number of users of this complex technology over the next 5 years.
Engineers have attempted to automate their simulations for decades. So why is this technique not used more often, especially given the potentially huge benefits? There are many reasons for this – you can learn more about various approaches to simulation automation and their pros and cons, by exploring this Topic Area.
Simulation Automation using templates has been used by many organizations to significantly improve the accuracy, consistency, repeatability, and efficiency of performing complex simulations. For example, the use of SimApps – simple-to-use Apps that drive underlying Simulation Automation Templates – has put the power of simulation in the hands of non-experts in many product development organizations. Web-Deploying these SimApps provides ubiquitous access to them, often across global organizations, ensuring that best practices are not just documented, but enforced via executable templates.
