ME Software Flow Chart

Engineers solve problems every day. I have been practicing the Mechanical Engineering profession for over 10 years and every day I solve problems. Every big problem can be broken down in small bits, which become a problem to solve on their own. Like in any profession, one very important step to solve a problem is to find the right tool to get the job done in the most effective and efficient way. In the digital age, most of these tool that I am talking about end up being some type of computer software. I often find myself mentally evaluating different software packages against the details of the problem at hand.  For this reason, I have tried here to provide a decision tree style flow chart to illustrate the typical thinking process used by many mechanical engineers to choose the right software for the job.
