In the automobile industry, BMW uses simulations to improve car crashworthiness. It ran 91 simulations and conducted just two real crashes. The results were a 30% improvement in design effectiveness and simulated crash tests that took 2.5 days versus 3.8 months (for simple tests)—and the 91 simulations cost less than the two real crashes (Thomke 2003).
