The Sandia Analysis Workbench (SAW) is a family of software applications that boost productivity and quality by making modeling and simulation easier while enforcing best practices and supporting ubiquitous V&V. Capabilities include model building, job submission, requirements tracking, and data management, and the Workbench provides a user-friendly graphical interface to Sierra, DAKOTA, and other important Sandia codes.

SAW strives to be a generally useful environment for computational simulation. The core SAW architecture is vendor-neutral with respect to analysis codes. Most components are designed as a generic capability with Sandia-specific configuration. The core SAW model building environment is being prepared for an open-source release slated for November 2016.
