Modeling and Simulation

Using models to simulate processes and gather data. Then use that data to improve the product or process at a lower cost than actually performing the process.

Testing new air bags through real-life crash tests could be time-consuming, expensive—even dangerous. Modeling and simulation finds that same information virtually, in very little time, with no smashed cars to make the physical world efficient, cost-effective, and safer.
