Shouldn't We Do? Up  

When Flow Analysis is Least Effective

Don't wait until the rest of the assembly is done

Don't wait until after the first debug run.

bullet

Try to avoid using it as the last resort (i.e. 'we tried everything else, so now we figured we'd have a flow done on it!')

bullet

Don't restrict your applications to your toughest tool. There may be something inherently flawed with your design that even flow analysis can't help you with while some of you bread and butter tools nay be improved dramatically

bullet

don't wait until they're cutting steel

bullet

avoid using flow analysis as an 'absolute' tool, accuracy of models material data and other factors make this a risky approach. Use it to compare various options and the relative differences.

bullet

Don't put the analysis into a black box and expect a magical one sentence solution to come out. Share with the person performing the analysis every piece of information available about a particular project. The more background data, the better the results.
