“HPC is here, tools are not: how long do we have to wait”

Mohamad S El-Zein, PhD – John Deere Fellow, Materials

Moline, IL, USA



In Corporate culture time is money. The faster the product is driven into the market, the more cost opportunities become available. Tools available to engineers in the areas of Structural analysis, CFD, acoustics, Discrete Element Methods, manufacturing process simulations, data analytics, and many other domains are used heavily during the product design, manufacturing, and operations. However, many of these tools were written before MPP, GPUs, and huge supercomputers available around the world. But incorporations have to balance speed versus cost, here where things get interesting and the act of balancing dollars versus tools versus cores. A run through what is there and their capabilities versus what is delivered to enterprises will be presented.
