Simulation Software

Simulation software is used by engineers to imitate a real-world phenomenon before manufacturing the engineered product. This type of software can be used for research, testing, or training. This type of software yields critical data on nearly any kind of project before the prototyping phase. Simulation software is related to Engineering CAD.
