Reviewing files from old work years ago at IBM.  Came across this email in which a colleague and I discussed the issue of simulation and modeling.  Until there is enough processing capability and storage simulations and models will always be an approximation of reality…something to consider when you think what the computer displays an answer.  Kelly Johnson had it right when he said he needed more engineers that could use slide rules…it wasn’t a slight against computers just a forecast that dependency upon the device to do your thinking and understanding is dangerous.
