How to Meet the Top 5 Simulation Process and Data Management Challenges

A typical day in the life of a simulation engineer involves data gathering data, referencing historical data, pre-processing the models, solving the simulation problem either locally or via high-performance computing (HPC), post-processing the results, generating reports and archiving data. The process and the level of interaction quickly get complex as more tools, physics and multiple teams are involved.
