This isn't Boeing to end well: Plane maker to scrap some physical cert tests, use computer simulations instead

Yes. I have no problem with modelling and running pre-production testing through a simulator. That makes some sense, but once the physical stuff starts being produced, it still needs to be double checked to make sure it is up to spec.

I would think the Software modelling would be useful to eliminate the models that simply won't work at all (the ones designed by the recent engineering graduates of Bonehead University). Find out before you even start building hardware test models, save some time and money that way. That would mean you would *now* have more budget to do the HARDWARE testing on models you have some expectation of success for.
