Well, I will have to disagree on this. I don't think that there is any
correlation between cost and the quality of the simulator system at all.

You seem to be discussing two issues here. The bit about simulators
don't design, and putting up a window for guidance seems to be referring
to real, practical design help, which is independent of any simulation
method. The bit about convergence is related to the simulator itself.
