AweSim provides manufacturers with competitive solutions for simulation-driven design. We are helping to automate the manual prototyping process and provide affordable, accessible and scalable M&S on HPC via:
It is a public/private partnership including the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and M&S industry experts, who are pioneering the field of M&S as a service.
AweSim represents the next phase of the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Blue Collar Computing initiative, which will offer a new stage of commercialization. AweSim is a partnership between OSC, simulation and engineering experts, and industry to provide small to mid-sized manufacturers with simulation-driven design to enhance innovation and strengthen economic competitiveness.
"Simulation-driven design replaces physical product prototyping with less expensive computer simulations, reducing the time to take products to market, while improving quality and cutting costs. Smaller manufacturers largely are missing out on this advantage, because they cannot afford to leverage such solutions. We aim to level the playing field, giving the smaller companies equal access."
- Alan Chalker, Director of AweSim, Ohio Supercomputer Center
We chose to name our effort “AweSim,” because a sense of awe is one of the elements that often accompanies the “Aha! moment,” a specific point in time when a student, professor, researcher, inventor or engineer unlocks the key to a challenging question or situation. Sim, short for simulation, is the means by which OSC helps clients achieve those inspirational moments of awe.
Companies choose AweSim for a variety of reasons:
