Factor of Safety Questions

Hey everyone this is my first post. I'm taking a class in SW and we're working on factor of safety simulations and I have a couple questions.  I've done quite a bit of googling that didn't clarify much for me. My questions are....


  1. Is there a way to import simulation information like factor of safety into a drawing and an e-drawing? (other than just making a text box?) I did figure out how to make an e-drawing that contains the factor of safety simulation of the part, but what if I wanted to display this on a drawing file?
  2. Is factor of safety a clear and concrete number value like an average? Or is is variable along the entire part? I'm having trouble understanding how to read the info once a study is done.


Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
