Leveraging high-performance computing to turbocharge engineering productivity.

popularity

Over the past 10 years, computer-aided engineering (CAE), and more generally virtual prototyping, has been increasingly recognized in product design. Simulation-driven prototyping fuels innovation in the manufacturing industry and helps users explore real-world behaviors of products. CAE helps enterprises innovate to:

• Compete
• Cope with increasingly demanding regulations
• Improve product capabilities and quality
• Reduce costs an ddevelopment times

Time is business critical. Time is the driving factor behind how we target business goals, measure profits, and track expenses. Time-to-market impacts product success and market acceptance. Productivity improvements boost results. Technology has only made us more intolerant of delays. Your staff doesn’t tolerate delays and downtime in its personal use of mobile devices, or in accessing office applications for work—an attitude enabled by the pervasive use of networking, centralized servers, and storage.

However, for many businesses, engineers accept slow performance of key engineering applications thanks to out-of-date workstations. Model response times and the scale of analysis are constrained by the performance, memory, and storage limits of a single system. A shared, multi-system high-performance computing (HPC) resource provides much faster response times for simulations, supports larger model sizes, and supports engineering collaboration across the organization. HPC users report faster time-to-market, improved productivity, and deeper insight into product designs. Tapping HPC fosters success beating the competition, meeting the demands of increased regulation, and tightening staffing levels.
