Article over at Innovation about the potential of HPC to transform US industry from the bottom up:

A few years ago, a maker of exhaust systems, for example, would have provided a Big Three manufacturer with a box of prototype parts ready for testing and fine tuning. Now these suppliers are increasingly delivering prototypes in the form of software code, to be simulated and tested on powerful supercomputers before the first piece of metal is cast.

The article has a definite IBM bias since it’s written by IBM’s VP of Deep Computing, but is nonetheless worth quick read if you too march to the Competitiveness drum.
