    us Why Blue Collar Computing American manufacturers are under continuous pressure to deliver goods at lower price points and with improved quality A key technology for achieving these goals is the use of advanced computational models and simulations at both the engineering design level as well as the manufacturing level Modeling in design processes allow engineers to explore a greater area of the possible design space for a product and deliver better designs in shorter times Manufacturers can use simulations to analyze the behavior of materials during the manufacturing process and based on that knowledge improve efficiency by adjusting processes to improve yield and reduce waste Large companies have found a competitive advantage from such simulations by leveraging high performance computing HPC systems and High Performance Technical Computing HPTC software For example General Motors is using parallel computing to simulate the crash testing of automobiles General Motors claims that the digital computer crash simulations made possible due to HPC hardware and HPTC software can reduce the number of full size crash vehicle tests by more than 85 at a cost of 500 000 per test 1 Unfortunately only the largest firms have realized the advantages of advanced modeling and simulation These firms had to make substantial investments to 1 Develop in house computational modeling and simulation expertise 2 Purchase the required HPTC software 3 Purchase an HPC system or HPC machine time from a shared center These barriers to entry place an undue burden on small and medium sized firms This in turn leads to underutilization of computational simulations that can lower costs and improve efficiency Blue Collar Computing BCC is an approach to supplying advanced modeling simulation and analysis solutions to companies without requiring large up front investments The BCC model is service oriented relying on amortizing the cost

    benefit from parallel execution They ran several of the customers models in parallel and provided a performance analysis report The automotive industry is increasingly simulation driven and component suppliers are required to provide models of parts to their customers for approval Engineers were very interested in the use of HPC for reduction of their component design cycle time including detailed computational models of seemingly simple components such as grommets and gaskets Industrial Consortia An engineering applications software developer wanted to obtain benchmark data for one of their main metal forming simulation products This product currently has two parallel solvers but they are testing a new parallel implementation They currently have a five processor development cluster that uses the Infiniband high performance interconnect but they would like to examine the performance of several large models using their new implementation beyond 5 processors OSC consultants installed and provided benchmark information using the Infiniband connected nodes of the Intel P4 cluster at OSC at higher processor counts This product is currently used by the aerospace automotive off road general transportation fastener and oil field engineering sectors In a recent study the product was used to simulate the production of Mk 84 bomb cases It allowed the engineers to isolate the root cause of each defect The resulting modifications to process control lead to an 85 reduction in the number of defective parts produced Research and Development Organizations A plastics research and development company was interested in testing the utility of HPC machines for finite element analysis OSC consultants ran several of their models in parallel and provided a performance analysis report As a small manufacturer they were extremely interested in rapid time to market for customer designs They feel HPC would be a tremendous advantage in this market North Central State College OSC

    with an OSC system OSC consulting staff will work with users to resolve problems port and optimize codes Priority access to resources Code analysis and scaling Software development Proposal development Project management OSC has created special packages of service to address several common use scenarios that are available upon request Portals OSC s Blue Collar Computing BCC program provides high performance computing capabilities and applications to businesses of all sizes through the development of portals and other information sharing mechanisms BCC s approach to novice and some experienced users is to develop industry specific portals in collaboration with industry trade groups and industry focused consulting firms Through the BCC program OSC can assist companies on a per project basis by creating a portal application An example is the E Weld Predictor portal an easy to use web based interface that allows welding engineers to simulate virtual welds thus reducing the time and material wasted with physical prototypes Currently experimental welding procedure trials can be cost prohibitive due to the myriad of geometrical process and material combinations By using E Weld Predictor engineers can explore a wide range of what if combinations and simulations The over 115 companies who have signed on to the service can see a decrease in prototype costs and quicker production because E Weld Predictor manages the heavy lifting associated with analytics The number of trials will also be reduced since only the most promising welding procedures are sent to the mock up stage Another industry specific application the Polymer Portal will be available to more than 2 800 polymer related facilities across the state OSC staff is working with PolymerOhio to develop web based applications targeted toward helping polymer companies including companies from the plastics rubber and advanced materials segments increase productivity The applications will transparently
