And there are people who follow the instructions of others, without too much regard to what’s actually going on. No problem there. In many ways it’s the only way we can roll out the benefits of simulation across an engineering enterprise effectively. But the point of this blog is that the skill sets and approaches of one workflow don’t work well in the other. And that mismatch is at its most obvious when we look at validation and people’s views on it.
