The survey comprised of an online questionnaire and was completed by 1094
respondents from 50 different countries. A large majority of respondents thought a system to define analyst skills and provide links to appropriate training resources would be useful. There was also strong support for a form of
professional qualification in engineering analysis. The advantages to industry
that these project deliverables would bring include incentives for staff development, marketing power and enhanced subcontractor qualification and
internal resource management.
The survey also provided a valuable insight into the current state of the engineering analysis and simulation industry. The most significant barriers to the effective use of engineering analysis were identified as recruitment of suitably qualified and experienced staff and a lack of analysis skills. “Pressure of work” was also identified as the most significant reason why organisations fail to get the most out of engineering analysis software.
The findings of this survey are now being used in the development of the project deliverables to ensure that they meet the needs of industry as much as
