A Roadmap for Creating and Using Virtual Prototyping Software

October 2022 Podcast
Douglass Post, Richard Kendall

Douglass Post and Richard Kendall discuss their experiences applying virtual prototyping in Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments (CREATE).

“What we proposed was replacing that big bottleneck in the middle with virtual prototyping, where we replaced these physical prototypes with software and supercomputers and virtual prototypes to do the design and testing. It had the advantage of being dramatically faster and dramatically more comprehensive”


Software Engineering Institute





In this podcast from the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute, Douglass Post and Richard Kendall, authors of Creating and Using Virtual Prototyping Software: Principles and Practices discuss with principal researcher Suzanne Miller experiences and insights that they gleaned from applying virtual prototyping in CREATE (Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tools and Environments), a multiyear DoD program to develop and deploy software for systems such as ships, air vehicles, ground vehicles, and radio-frequency antennas. CREATE enabled engineers and scientists to design these complex systems and to accurately predict their performance.
