Simulation for Design: New whitepaper

Simulation is integrated into the design process in many ways, but there are three typical scenarios.  You apply simulation when you want to:

  1. Model a future space that does not yet exist.
  2. Select the best of several alternative designs/layouts.
  3. Modify the current state of your process or space.

Spatial design cannot take place without knowing how the space will be used. By using simulation to think about how people move through the space, and how equipment is used in the area, you can test alternatives and find the best possible layout for your situation.
