Finite Element Methods are a popular method for solving Partial Differential Equations. Unlike Ordinary Differential Equations, there has not been a complete solution to automating any simulation. Here we provide a discussion on the trends in automation of FEM methods, some challenges to automation, and a novel computational study of different methods solving Stokes Equations made possible through automation.
