  1. 1. The Role of the GRID in Engineering Simulation Where is the need? Where is the value? IBBT-Symposium on GRIDS in Science and Business Nick Tzannnetakis CTO & Product Director NOESIS & LMS International 12 June 2007 Gent, Belgium
  2. 2. The Future is in Intelligent System Simulation and Testing Agenda Key business challenges 1 in the manufacturing industries 2 LMS Profile 3 GRID in Engineering – Why? 4 Remaining Challenges 2 copyright LMS International - 2007
  3. 3. Addressing the key business challenges of the discrete manufacturing industries The industry’s focus remains on getting the “right” products out in the market, on the “right” time Win market share Compete with Differentiate through innovative designs appealing brand values Shorten time The Product Optimize to market Innovation Race price/performance Constantly renew and Reduce expand the portfolio costs and risks Manage the value chain 3 copyright LMS International - 2007
  4. 4. LMS, more than 25 years of engineering innovation The industry’s single provider that truly combines virtual simulation with physical testing Uniquely combining Engineering Services, Testing Systems, CAE software, Process Integration and Software Deployment Services Talented people, +800 professionals, +30 locations, committed to customers’ success The industry largest commitment to technology development and innovation – 30 % of budget in R&D Strong financial track record of double digit profitable growth for +25 years (Europe: 39%, Asia: 39%, Americas: 22%) 4 copyright LMS International - 2007
  5. 5. LMS, serving more than 3000 leading manufacturers in the auto, aerospace, fabrication and assembly industries Partnering with automotive manufacturers Partnering with automotive suppliers Partnering with aerospace companies Partnering with manufacturing companies 5 copyright LMS International - 2007
  6. 6.

  7. 7. Simulation Effectiveness - The Requirements: Process Integration including Data & Process Execution Management Capture, Organize and Federate Engineering Processes and the Organize the Process Execution Associated Data on HPC Environments NVH CRASH Process Integration Smart Experimentation and Data Mining Mr. Michael Kaufmann of Audi AG comments, “… has allowed us to complete a weight optimization project on a To provide Design Insight full vehicle with 100 design variables and 7 crash and NVH load cases under 30 constraints. We were able to demonstrate that it now becomes feasible and practical to perform large-scale multi-disciplinary optimization problems with OPTIMUS on Platform LSF-enabled networks. This implementation of OPTIMUS has enabled AUDI to complete MDO analyses that were until now impossible to run with typically several orders of magnitude shorter turn-around times.” 7 copyright LMS International - 2007

  11. 11. Key Enablers – Key Speed-bumps “something to build on, something to focus in” A business framework to work on: New Business Models – Disruptive Transformation • Licensing strategies • Application transformation Legal infrastructure Infrastructure to operate in: Middleware – 1 Level up from the OS (?) STANDARDS – introducing simplicity and easiness in developing “GRIDified” applications An environment to deploy to: Service providers (internal or external) Managing it (IT versus Divisions) 11 copyright LMS International - 2007
  12. 12. LMS and SIMDAT – Clearly demonstrating the GRID Premium Value Two “critical path” developments Aerospace Activity • GRID/SOA based Workflow and Meta- Model Creation Web-Services • VALUE: Extended Organization - Collaboration Automotive and Aerospace Activity: • GRID/SOA based Test Data Search, Query and Delivery Web-Services • VALUE: Enterprise Collaboration – Test Data Integration Registry- Bus “Grid Middleware” Service Semantic Layer Ontology Service OGSA-DAI-Connector OGSA-DAI-Connector OGSA-DAI-Connector Transport Layer Data-Service Data-Service Data-Service Ready to deploy results (OGSA-DAI) (OGSA-DAI) (OGSA-DAI) SIMDAT Bus- Bus- Bus- Connector Connector Connector (OGSA-DAI) (OGSA-DAI) (OGSA-DAI) MSC.SimManager LMS Tec.Manager PDM-System 12 copyright LMS International - 2007
  13. 13. Are we there? Is it enough to address the speed-bumps? Too Application-Centric Is GRID Scalability going to unlock its value? GRID Success can only come if the Innovation PREMIUM is moved from the “Application” itself to the USE of the Application 13 copyright LMS International - 2007
