Yes and no. If you have a deep knowledge of simulation engineering, then the Software Solutions Studio can be viewed as having the following benefits and drawbacks.
Software Solutions Studio Benefits:
- Reduced (massively) time and money required to build the simulation
- Verified and tested simulation constructions
- We handle the verification, you handle the validation
- More intuitive knowledge capture and improved communication of results, via the graphical user interface
- Easier reuse of templates and patterns for modeling software delivery
- High simulation environment portability (web browser vs. a local IDE)
- Baked-in best practices around simulation construction
Software Solutions Studio Drawbacks:
- Reduced (massively) flexibility of simulations
- Limited ability to work on, or run, simulations offline
- Limitations to customization and extensibility
- Inability to use CLI utilities to wrap, control, and orchestrate simulation work
- Less performant simulation execution (in some cases)
- Lack of low-level explainability title: Is this better than writing a simulation from scratch?
