In the SISU-project over 10 case studies are carried out in many different fields and applications. Results and experience of developing simulation applications have started to accumulate. One of the most important results this far is that there are many common features in both good and bad between our test cases. Simulation is a fast and reliable, and often a low risk method to study different systems and processes. On the other hand many applications need very expensive licences, plenty of parametric data and highly specialised knowledge in order to produce really valuable results. Industrial partners are acting like real customers in the case studies. We hope that this methodology will help us to answer our main question: How to create value chain from model development via model application to end users? The best thing to happen will be if partners learn to apply simulation productively. Other scientists and companies will follow, and new value chains will be mushrooming. Most case studies have just started and many really new results are not yet available, but the preliminary results are very promising.
