In this paper, we provide a historical overview of the observation of quantum effects in both experimental and theoretical nanoscale devices. This overview puts into perspective the need for developing and using the Schred tool when modeling nanoscale devices. At the end of the document, we briefly describe the theoretical model used in the Schred tool.
