About Excellerat

What has HPC done for its industrial users so far?

With the help of HPC, an airplane manufacturer managed to save $2 million on inventory and shortened production flow times by 25%, inventory levels assembly by 30% and overtime expenses by 40%. 

 HPC has also made it possible to decrease development time for new vehicle platforms from 60 months to 24. Furthermore, HPC helps autonomous vehicles to predict driving functions and increase passenger safety by avoiding road hazards. 

Similarly, faults can be predicted in advance through intelligent analysis of real-time data produced by airplanes. A concrete example from aviation is the Airbus A380, which was designed with the help of HPC simulation. It carries twice as many passengers at the same noise level, uses less than 3 liters of fuel per person per 100 km and produces less than 75g of CO2 per person per km – an achievement enabled with HPC. You can find EXCELLERAT’s success stories.

EXCELLERAT offers cross-cutting support for various engineering sectors, like manufacturing, automotive, energy, aerospace, chemistry, biology and climate. Enabling generic application support is a non-trivial task. Within the engineering sector, we see specialisation on expertise, applications development, targeted training and offered hardware.

Our Highlight

The setup of EXCELLERAT is complementarity to the current setup of each HPC provider/centre. EXCELLERAT will enable enhanced engineering applications and support the community in a way which could not be provided by one single provider.
