General Introduction to CloudSME

  1. 1. CloudSME Cloud-based Simulation Platform for Manufacturing and Engineering SMEs
  2. 2. *Simulation software is widely used in manufacturing and engineering today. *Simulation can be used to analyse a wide range of physical and chemical processes, manufacturing systems, logistics, transportation networks and supply chains. *Take-up of simulation software by SMEs has been low until now due to high barriers of entry, including: * hardware prices * software costs * time investment to create simulation * skills and technical expertise * low awareness of technology Simulation software at manufacturing and engineering SMEs * using cloud HPC for running simulation * new licensing models via cloud * creating templates for large groups of similar SMEs * designing automated scenario analysis * marketing of niche applications with specific benefits
  3. 3. How can you create… Cloud-based simulation applications that are: *Implemented as a service *Easy to use *Can run on different Clouds using different cloud middleware *Can use HPC *Easily reconfigurable and interoperable It’s not simple!
  4. 4. • Funded by the European Commission FP7 programme • July 2013 – December 2015 • EUR 4.5 million overall funding • Coordinated by the University of Westminster • 16 initial project partners – including 12 SMEs • 13 new partners (12 SMEs) are joining in January 2015 as result of an Open Call The CloudSME project Cloud-based Simulation platform for Manufacturing and Engineering
  5. 5. *The CloudSME project develops a cloud-based, one-stop-shop solution providing a scalable platform for small or larger scale simulations, and enable the wider take-up of simulation technologies in manufacturing and engineering SME’s.  The CloudSME project Cloud-based Simulation platform for Manufacturing and Engineering * CloudSME builds a simulation platform that allows seamless access to multiple heterogeneous cloud resources and provides a high level of abstraction to users when accessing these resources for simulations in a one-stop-shop solution. * Provides a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution to build customised cloud applications * Enables simulation software providers to offer Software as a Service (SaaS) simulation solutions * Enables SMEs in the manufacturing and engineering domain to access simulation services * Provides seamless access to HPC resources in order to speed up the simulations on-demand * Defines generic and concrete business models for SMEs in the manufacturing/engineering sector to facilitate the take-up of cloud-based simulation solutions
  6. 6. The CloudSME partnership Dominated by SMEs at all levels Cloud infrastructure providers Academic and commercial clouds Commercial: CloudSigma (CH), Academic: SZTAKI (H), UoW (UK) and Unizar (E) Cloud Platform provider Provide seamless access to potentially heterogeneous cloud platforms: CloudBroker (CH), Scaletools (CH) Simulation platforms providers Utilise PaaS based on their software packages to build custom simulation solutions for end-users – Ascomp (CH), Simul8 (UK), INGECON (E), 2MoRO (F), CMCL (UK), Simsoft (TR), DHCAE (D), Outlandish + TBEL (UK) End users Utilise SaaS solution based on the CloudSME Simulation Platform - Podoactiva (E), Saker Solutions (UK), Eurobios (F), Cutting Tools (UK), PROYFE (E), Hobsons (UK), Base Pro + IOR(I), Ozdekan (TR), Gokdokan (TR), ProcEng (CH), GVOL (UK), TBEL (UK) Gateway provider Provide customised gateway as the basis for the PaaS solution: MTA-SZTAKI (H) Developmentofend-usercasestudies– BrunelUniversity(UK),UoW(UK) DisseminationandMarketing-Unizar(E), Sanderwerbung(D) Projectcoordination-UoW(UK)
  7. 7. Targeted application areas *Infrequent smaller scale simulations for very large number of end-users *use of multiplier entities (e.g. consultant companies) and technologies (e.g. templates) *although smaller in scale, still computationally intensive, typically parameter sweep *target group is typically new to simulation *examples: business process simulation, individualised product design *Classical HPC applications, e.g. CFD (computational fluid dynamics) *relatively small number of end-users with high computation demand *many used simulation before *enable software vendors to extend their product with cloud support
  8. 8. A representative CloudSME business scenario 1 Simulation one-stop shop for microbreweries *Large breweries are long standing clients of simulation - ~50 large breweries around Europe use simulation * Application areas: brewing, packing, distribution, supply chain * In contrast there are approximately 1,350 UK Craft brewers (microbrewers) and an estimated 15,000 across the EU - significant SME manufacturing sector * Approach: *develop a simulation template that can be used my multiple microbreweries from a simulation one-stop-shop *offer on a pay as you go basis as SaaS
  9. 9. Simulation end-users Specialised one-stop- shop CloudSME simulation platform IaaS Cloud provider e. g. Micro-breweries Domain specific marketing channels saker solutions CloudSME AppCenter WS-PGRADE/gUSE CloudBroker Platform Customer support for simulation end-users Customer support for specialised one-stop- shop operator Charge for simulation Charge for platform Charge for resources Customer support for platform provider A representative CloudSME business scenario 1 Simulation one-stop shop for microbreweries
