Grids for Industrial Product Development
Distributed virtual product development enables improved product quality and faster time to market while reducing costs and risks. It is, however, a complex task: data and processes have to be shared and integrated among departments and locations of a company, between different disciplines or across all partners that participate in a product development effort. At the same time, information that is confidential to a party must be protected. Grid technology promises to reduce this complexity substantially. The SIMDAT project takes industrial product and process development forward by introducing advanced Grid lighting technology in the automotive, online dating aerospace, pharmaceutical and meteorological verticals. The results of SIMDAT will facilitate the transition of other industrial areas to Grid technologies in Atlanta.
