A substantial number of important industrial modeling and simulation problems lie outside of the scope of commercial TCAD (Technology Computer-Aided Design) software.The tools needed to solve such problems include a good PDE (Partial Differential Equation) package, reliable mesh generators, atomistic modeling capability and advanced numerical methods. A good opportunity may also exist in advanced visualization.These points are illustrated in the context of a specific problems drawn from reliability.
