Cray Solutions for Manufacturing
Getting new products to market today increasingly requires a range of supercomputing solutions.
For advanced manufacturing concerns, bringing a new product to market increasingly requires sophisticated computer-aided engineering (CAE) using complex simulation. At the same time, the exponential increase of data sources and data types — across research, production, service, customer support, supply chain management and marketing — is driving the need for advanced analytics. Cray supplies the computational power and analytics response that today’s intensive manufacturing environments require.
Cray has provided high performance computing systems to manufacturing customers for over 30 years. Throughout this time, Cray has also worked closely with independent software vendors and the CAE community to advance the technology, jointly pioneering efforts in areas such as crash simulation, noise, vibration and harshness simulation and computational fluid dynamics.
Via application scalability and overall system performance Cray meets the demand for better fidelity in engineering simulation, enabling CAE to deliver increased insight and still meet the accelerated product development schedule.
Cray® XC™ series systems have highly scalable networks and unmatched compute density to handle the most challenging simulation needs. The capacity-oriented Cray® CS™ series cluster supercomputers offer high performance and maximum configuration flexibility. Cray storage and data management
systems provide integrated, reliable and modular scale-out Lustre® storage
solutions that maximize file system performance and scalability at any
size. And the Urika-XA™ extreme analytics appliance transforms big data problems into meaningful information — from the factory floor to the supply chain.
Whether it’s a large research center routinely running CAE simulations over 10,000 cores or a commercial enterprise running thousands of simulations to support the design of multiple products, manufacturing customers such as the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart, General Electric and KTH Royal Institute of Technology choose Cray to enhance the value of simulation.
