Optimize clamping of a part

We design & build machining fixtures for turbine blade manufactures. Most all of the fixtures utilize a 6 point nest to locate the part with 3 primary locators, 2 secondary locators & a single tertiary locator. The one issue that we always seem to have is the best place on the part to put the clamping without moving it off of those 6 locators. Would the simulation add on be something that could show this or is that based more on a motion that you apply within the program. Or would there be a better option available. What we’re doing now is poke & hope that it’s not going to move which is not the best way to do some of them. Thanks.
