System simulator choices

I've used <Math> and <EDA> to avoid a debate on specific tools. That can be the subject of a poll in its own right.

Just wondering, for the front end up to but not including the ADC, how necessary is a system simulator? What are you trying to find?

thanks,
Aaron

Thank you for the lone reply to my question!

I wanted to know how many analog designers perform the fabled/mythical 'top level simulation' in order to determine circuit level specs. To ask the same question in a different way: plot a graph with Y axis as manufacturing yield and X axis as a composite figure-of-merit, consisting of design complexity, power diss, die size, ...  How many design managers have some sense of such a graph before making design choices?
