Interesting discussion among members of the NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Working Group on the pros and cons of Template-Based Design Analysis.

A recent PhD thesis titled, “Template Based Design Analysis – An Alternative Approach for the Engineering Designer to Perform Computer-Based Design Analysis”, by Håkan Petersson of Lund University was shared with members of the NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Working Group and generated a lively (email) discussion. The discussion was documented in this article in the NAFEMS Benchmark magazine.

The participants discuss the pros and cons, and the dangers and potential ROI of simulation templates, borrowing from their extensive experience implementing and deploying them over the last couple of decades.
