Sytem analysis (define system)

On a recent visit by a EagleWare sales/applications team I asked whether
Genesys had, or would have capability to simulate at a system level
defined as follows: silicon solution, this packaged, this mounted on PCB, this interfaced to instrumentation through connectors. Their answers were
vague, at best. It could have been my fault; perhpas the question was not
clear. What is clear, however, is the need for this type of simulation analysis.

Many times there is little, or no information about packaging, about the PCB, or even connectors such as SMAs. Would it not be desirable to be able to co-simulate an interface between packaging (about which only physical information in the form of Gerber files is available, thus calling for an EM simulation environment) and an IC (whose front-end could be an LNA with s-param info available thanks to a linear simulator). Can an environment gather an EM modeling tool and a linear simulator and provide a bridge so that the two worlds communicate?

Is this available? Is this possible? Am I confuesd, once more?
