Modeling and simulation (M&S) is a key tool for the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry in order to create better products and processes. However, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are not using it with the same intensity as big companies, having some wellknown barriers: lack of trained people, expensive hardware and software, etc. CloudPYME is a project funded by POCTEP European project to promote the usage of M&S among SMEs of the metalmechanic sector on the Euroregion Galicia-North of Protugal where a Cloud service based
on open software solutions and high-level technical support. The objectives, computing architecture and the results with test companies are presented, with a description of the
leassons learned.

CloudPYME: A Full Value-chain Ecosystem for the provision of modelling and simulations services for SMEs

  1. 1. CloudPYME: A Full Value-chain Ecosystem for the Provision of Modeling and Simulation Services on Cloud for SMEs
  2. 2. To provide high performance computing and advanced communications resources and services to the scientific community of Galicia and to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), as well as, to institutions and enterprises with R&D&I activity. To promote high quality research in Computational Science in close collaboration with the research community from Galicia as well as from other regions or countries all over the world; contributing in this way to the advancement of science, to transfer technology to industry and administrations, and as consequence, to the welfare of society as a whole. Mission Statement

  14. 14. Cloud Portal
  15. 15. Tested with companies • Carpintaria Domingos Fernandes Ralha e Herdeiros • Weproductise
  16. 16. What have we learnt? • Open Source CAD is not welcome. • CAE Open software is not easy to use, not friendly. But IT is powerful. • Bandwidth is a barrier. Another solution for shared storage. • Windows (SMEs) vs Linux world. • New functionalities (as robust studies) are more suitable for Cloud.
  17. 17. Conclusions • Simulation is a must for SMEs • Still important barriers to adopt it • Supercomputing centres have the computing knowledge • But need collaboration with Tech Centers • Open Software and Cloud could help adoption, but need improvements • And…
