In addition to Simulation responsibilities, their roles often have them designing the part, managing the testing process, updating the parts database, documenting the product, etc. Simulation is just one of the things they do. Of course, Simulation ensures they get the parts designed right the first time and minimize the number of prototypes that often slow down getting a project completed on-time and under budget making it a key capability crucial to projects success.
