The arrival of the Functional-Mockup-Interface (FMI) has been a game changer by simplifying the combination of models from different tools.View Summary
Most of us know by now that there is not one single software tool that will solve all our simulation needs. Even if we narrow it down to system simulation, we will not find that One tool.
Not so long ago, handling different aspects of product design with separate tools was not a major problem. But as competitive pressure builds to get products to market faster, the game is changing.
A major key to success is being able to integrate subsystems into system simulations early in the design process. This enables organizations to understand and assess system behavior, as opposed to component or subsystem behavior, to avoid flaws that become costly to correct in later stages.View Article
