With System Assembly and Modeling (SAM), CST Studio Suite® provides an environment that simplifies the management of simulation projects, enabling the intuitive construction of electromagnetic (EM) systems and straightforward management of complex simulation flows using schematic modeling.

The SAM framework can be used for analyzing and optimizing an entire device that consists of multiple individual components.  These are described by relevant physical quantities such as currents, fields or S-parameters. SAM enables the use of the most efficient solver technology for each component.

SAM helps users to compare the results of different solvers or model configurations within one simulation project and perform post-processing automatically. SAM facilities the set-up of a linked sequence of solver runs for hybrid and multiphysics simulations. For example using the results of EM simulation to calculate thermal effects, then structural deformation, and then another EM simulation to analyze detuning.

This combination of different levels of simulation helps to reduce the computational effort required to analyze a complex model accurately.
