We describe the advantages and disadvantages of numerical methods when Bohmian trajectory grids are used for numerical simulations of quantum dynamics. We focus on the crucial noncrossing property of Bohmian trajectories, which, numerically, must be given careful attention. Failure to do so causes instabilities or leads to false simulations.
