What is EXCELLERAT?
The EXCELLERAT project bundles knowledge on HPC in engineering and offers service solutions for industry and research. One focus of EXCELLERAT lies on engineering solutions for aeronautics and the automotive sector. It caters for the need to provide the necessary knowledge, computational power and infrastructure to tackle the ever rising complexity of scientific and development endeavors alike.
What is the goal?
EXCELLERAT wants to bring together key players from industry, research and HPC and provide services to advance the European engineering market towards Exascale computing. Exascale is able to address computationally highly complex and costly problems and allows to gain insight into the potential of technological solutions already at the development stage.
What benefits can I as an industrial user expect for my company and my product?
Using HPC can enhance the design process for your product, for example by simulating your products’ characteristics and behavior, thus avoiding time consuming feedback loops and improvement phases. The answers to your design and manufacturing questions are oftentimes well hidden in the complex data you already have at your disposal. High Performance Data Analytics can guide you through the myriad of data points and provide you with the answers you need to improve your product or production cycle. This leads to shortened production times, allowing to reach market readiness much faster. Advanced modelling and data analytics can effectively cut costs for your business workflow.
But how can I make use of HPC technologies without being an HPC expert myself?
EXCELLERAT offers a multitude of services for our users through the Service Portal. There you can find exactly what you need to incorporate HPC into your research or product development. Depending on your current needs, you can either request individual consultations to get started or tackle an existing problem, or, for instance, take part in trainings. You will be provided with the exact type of support you will most benefit from.
