Engineering modeling is an art, not a science. Models should be “designed” to answer certain questions of the product development team. • Under-modeling may cause the team to miss certain critical behaviors. • Over-modeling may obscure insight into causes of behavior. • Over-modeling leads to excessive costs during optimization and sensitivity testing.
