Manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence with the help of high performance computing. In this insideHPC webinar, you’ll learn how the power of CAE and simulation is transforming the industry with faster time to solution, better quality, and reduced costs.

  • Despite manufacturing’s comeback, the industry is still facing some daunting challenges that include:
    Increasing regulation. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, “Federal regulation is estimated to cost more than $1 trillion annually, according to a report by the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy. The study found that United States manufacturing comprised $162 billion of the $648 billion burden of environmental, economic, workplace and tax-compliance regulation.” NAM points out that dollars spent by manufacturers on regulatory compliance with cumbersome or duplicate regulations are dollars not spent on capital equipment or hiring new employees.
  • Rising costs. Another major consideration for today’s manufacturers is to respond to the pressure to reduce costs. This, in turn, is driving the need to reduce expensive physical prototyping through the use of modeling and simulation earlier in the design process.
  • Global competition. Intense competition on a global basis requires manufacturers to speed their time-to-market, which can only be accomplished by a more efficient IT infrastructure and a major boost in end user productivity.

Meeting the Challenge
In an ideal world, a CAE system that can address these challenges would not be a box of components and wires dropped off by the vendor that turns into a six month science project. Instead, the ideal system in an ideal world would be:

  • Flexibly architected
  • Resilient
  • High performance
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy to deploy
  • Easy to administer

With these goals in mind, Altair Engineering has partnered with SGI on Hyperworks Unlimited Physical Appliance, a turnkey solution that simplifies high performance computing for CAE. With this easy-to-deploy, unified platform, users can tackle a broad spectrum
of CAE applications and workloads. Built with the latest Intel® Xeon® processors, the system optimizes your productivity by providing faster data access to do real work and increases the value of archived data.Case Studies Bring it all Together.

In this webinar, insideHPC will take you through a manufacturing case study with Black & Decker, a global manufacturing company that has successfully deployed high performance computing solutions for their competitive advantage. Register today.
