Who's doing analysis-led design?

Autodesk isn't the only vendor pushing new simulation capabilities so engineers and designers can tap them earlier in the process. My question is, though, beyond simply having CFD, FEA, and other analysis tools available from within the CAD environment, what are some other ways vendors can make analysis more accessible?

Beth - You pose a very good question.

Having worked in the field for a while, I find that there are numerous tools that do different aspect of the simulation.

But having the tool is only part of the problem. The other part is getting the data that would go into these tools to do the analysis. And if you don't have a design yet, you have very little data to put into the analysis tools. A classic chicken and the egg scenario. 

There is good discussion that is coming up on Sept 13th (webinar discussion) where folks from the industry would kick-off this conversation and discuss what industry is doing today to address this. Might be good for you to attend.
