  9. 9. Early Findings
  10. 10. Measuring the Value of Simulation Study • About the research study – Survey-based study – Statistics will be used to publish an info- graphic research report, made available to participants • Includes questions on how simulation is valued as well as organizational characteristics • Early findings will be shown today 10
  11. 11. Question #3: Which of the following simulation advantages are realized by your organization? 11 Have metrics been formally defined and tracked as a way to measure the value of simulation? 38% YES
  12. 12. Question #2: Simulation is used in which of the following activities in your organization? 12 48% 63% 66%
  13. 13. Question #3: Which of the following simulation advantages are realized by your organization? 13
  14. 14. Question #1: In which of the following aspects of product development does your organization use simulation? 14 Larger orgs concentrated on front end with simulation Smallest orgs aren’t using simulation as much
  15. 15. Question #5: Which of the following best describes the attitude of your organization’s leadership towards simulation. 15
  16. 16. Question #2: Simulations are used to validate designs before next steps such as prototyping, testing or design release 16
  17. 17. Question #2: Simulation results affect and influence design decisions 17
  18. 18. Question #2: Simulation generates design alternatives or improvements through optimizations or design of experiments 18
  19. 19. Takeaways from Early Findings • Biggest cited advantage @ product performance. BE CAREFUL. Quantify it. • Understand how sim affects your company’s business model (contract or prospective). • Bigger orgs should consider using sim more broadly. Smaller orgs should use sim more consistently. • Orgs that see sim as essential use them more frequently in testing / prototyping and apply them EVERY TIME. 19
