In this paper we briefly review the approach and capabilities of the BPM method, and its applications to photonic devices and largescale PICs such as arrayed-waveguide-grating WDMs. Many numerical and analytical techniques have been developed for optical waveguide modeling. After briefly surveying these techniques, the talk will focus on the finite-difference BPM and the problems to which it can be applied. The method allows efficient simulation in 2D or 3D, can incorporate polarization via both semi- and full-vectorial approaches, can handle anisotropic media, nonlinear effects, and wide-angle circuits, and can perform mode solving as well as propagation calculations. As a specific example of the difficulties in treating large scale circuits, We give two approaches to the design of the arrayed-waveguide-grating based routers used in WDM sytems
