WHAT IS EXCELLERAT? The EXCELLERAT project is a single point of access for expertise on how data management, data analytics, visualisation, simulation-driven design and Co-design with high-performance computing (HPC) can benefit engineering, especially in the aeronautics, automotive, energy and manufacturing sectors.
WHAT IS THE GOAL? EXCELLERAT aims to tackle the ever-rising complexity of scientific and development endeavours. Thus, Exascale computing is our focus, which will solve highly complex and costly engineering problems, and create enhanced technological solutions even at the development stage.
The goal of EXCELLERAT is to enable the European engineering industry to advance towards Exascale technologies and to create a single entry point to services and knowledge for all stakeholders (industrial end users, ISVs, technology providers, HPC providers, academics, code developers, engineering experts) of HPC for engineering. In order to achieve this goal, EXCELLERAT brings together key players from industry, research and HPC to provide all necessary services.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN I EXPECT FOR MY COMPANY AND MY PRODUCT? The biggest benefit of HPC is to increase the processing speed, which enables businesses to deliver faster results and save more money. Some examples of the work that HPC can handle include:
Enhanced Design and Manufacturing Process: With HPC it is possible to simulate your products’ characteristics and behaviour, analyse, and optimise the core physics, which helps to avoid time-consuming feedback loops and improvement phases. Enhanced Streamline Processes: With advanced modelling and data analytics, HPC can go beyond the capabilities and customise processes so that it can effectively cut the cost of your business workflow. Enhanced Supply and Demand Processes: High-performance data analytics can guide you through the data points and provide you with the answers you need to improve your product or production cycle, leading to shortened production times and quicker readiness for the market. With this work, HPC gives your competitive business a head up over the competition.
EXCELLERAT exploits the fastest high-performance computers in the world, including the fastest general-purpose machines for industrial production in Europe, to ensure infrastructure running smoothly so your organisation can focus on pushing the business forward.
HOW CAN I USE EXASCALE SOLUTIONS WITHOUT BEING AN EXASCALE EXPERT MYSELF? EXCELLERAT’s Service Portal offers a range of services such as training and individual consultations that will help you incorporate Exascale solutions (data analytics, data management, HPC, co-design, visualisation, codes for simulations) into your research or product development. You will be provided with the exact type of support you will most benefit from, based on your own current needs.
