Quite a long time ago, I remember the first time I visited a hard-core simulation analyst’s group. It was at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and I, fresh out of college, was showing them some new simulation technology. There were lots of questions and conversations that day. But first and foremost in my memory, I remember the… well… reverence some of the other engineers had for these simulation analysts. They were the unequivocal experts. Their authority was unquestionable. They were on a pedestal.

Fast forward to today, and I believe that the standing of simulation analysts is changing in the engineering community. No, there’s been no terrible fall from grace. The change has been subtle, but noticeable. Let me explain.
