AweSim: HPC solutions for small, medium-size businesses

Wed, 24 May 2017 8:15 EDT - Chase Eyster

While many from the academic community are already doing amazing research through the Ohio Supercomputer Center, we also serve many commercial clients through the AweSim Program. But there are still those who could benefit from the program who haven't even been introduced to it yet. Chase Eyster's mission is to make that introduction. Find out how he does it and the reactions he receives. 



Ohio Supercomputer Center, OARnet give Ohio companies a leg up on the competition

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 8:45 EDT - Ted Griffith

When I talk to innovative companies seeking a competitive advantage, I tell them there are a number of reasons for setting up shop in Ohio. I talk about access to a predictable business environment, our skilled workforce, and the scale-up opportunities that JobsOhio and our partners can facilitate for them.


A cost-effective alternative to in-house modeling and simulation

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 8:21 EST - Chase Eyster

By opening an account through the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) AweSim Modeling & Simulation industrial engagement program, designers and engineers could have access to one of the most powerful HPC platforms in the world. They would be able to sign in to their account, establish a secure connection with one of our three HPC systems, and use OSC resources to maximize their M&S efforts.


Imitation proves the importance of OSC's AweSim program

Looking for and embracing new technologies, methodologies and innovative process is not something many small and mid-sized manufacturers (SMMs) have time to explore. However, the OSC-AweSim team embraces every obstacle as a challenge and has worked hard to help manufacturers embrace obstacles as challenges. And it turns out, people are noticing and trying to jump on board. 



Clippard, Kinetic Vision team up to eliminate flow inconsistencies

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 7:15 EST - Jeremy Jarrett

When Doug Robertson,  director of engineering at Clippard Inc. — a community-oriented company near Cincinnati — and his team initially approached AweSim, they were simply looking for help to segue their company into the world of high performance computing (HPC) modeling and simulation. What Robertson and the Clippard team wanted was simply to predict the performance of a spring in one of their electromagnetic proportional valves. After all, when your business is manufacturing valves, predictable and controlled fluid flow is essential. 



Three reasons to look forward to SC16

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 9:39 EST - Dave Hudak, Ph.D.


Members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center have been attending the SC Conference since its inception in 1988. Quite simply, it's the premier event for the high performance computing community. And it provides incredible benefits to attendees, three of which stand out among the rest. 



Manufacturing modeling and data analytics collaboration: What does the future hold?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 8:30 EDT - Robert Graybill

For small- to medium-sized companies to keep pace with both their customers and their competition, they need a technological advantage. That advantage might just be modeling, simulation and data analysis, and that's where AweSim comes in. But where exactly are we going? How can we get there? And how can we engage? 


How ‘democratization’ relates to modeling and simulation

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 1:30 EDT - Jeffrey S. Crompton

The democratization of Computer Aided Engineering was a hot topic at the recent 2016 NAFEMS meeting in Seattle. And while many approaches to wider access to modeling and simulation are emerging, a clear path hasn't quite been decided upon yet. One thing that is clear is AweSim plans to be part of the solution, here's how: 



A chance to discuss affordable HPC and its impact

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 11:00 EDT - Alan Chalker

Recently, AweSim Director Alan Chalker had the opportunity to sit in on Desktop Engineering's roundtable discussion, "Supercomputing for the Rest of Us." The goal of the roundtable was to discuss the democratization of high performance computing modeling and simulation. It turned out to be an excellent platform to continue to spread the word about how the AweSim program is working to lower the perception and reality of exclusivity to this powerful tool, from which all manufacturers can benefit. 


My favorite question: Why aren’t we using this program already?

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 3:15 EDT - Chase Eyster

Recently, we visited the LRITA Tech Conference in Lima, Ohio to share what high performance computing modeling and simulation can offer manufacturers and engineers. As usual, the response was, "why aren't we using this program already?" Introducing people to our M&S and opening eyes is a pretty cool experience. Check out more about our trip to LRITA and what we were able to share with IT professionals from northwest Ohio.
