A Simulation Expert Shares His Secrets

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000ways that don’t work.”

Thomas Edison

Bob Johnson is an analyst with over 40 years of experience with design analysis and is an expert on all things related to simulation. In my interview, Bob shares his vast knowledge on testing products; what works, what doesn’t work, and how to not overthink your simulation results. Bob is not only a consultant for many companies, but also teaches others on how to properly set up and run proper simulations.  Bob is also a key member of the SIMULIA community.

Bob also runs marathons, and not just like most marathon runners, as he creates costumes himself to run in.

If you have ever used simulation to test your designs, or are thinking about trying it, I’m sure you will pick up a few tips in this interview.
