A good analyst should have the following characteristics:

  • Degreed Engineer - professionals with this type of background have a knowledge base in finite element methods, along with a background in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and materials.  They are also schooled in scientific methods, where it is critical to understand cause/effect as it applies to controlling variables


  • Molding Background - Knowledge in how the world of simulation relates to the production environment is critical to providing real-world processing & tooling recommendations


  • Certified - Engineers using simulation tools should be certified at the highest level,  ensuring best practices are utilized


  • Experienced - Analyst should have 3-5 years of experience running the software so that they can understand its strengths and limitations.


  • Excellent Communicator - It’s one thing to come up with a solution, it’s another to communicate those results to others. Communication between the analyst and client should be clear and consise.
