Modeling and Simulation among U.S. Manufacturers: The Case for Digital Manufacturing

Addison Snell, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

In partnership with Intersect360 Research, the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) conducted a broad-based survey of U.S. manufacturers regarding the current state of digital manufacturing technologies and the drivers and barriers to expanding adoption. This study reveals the desire and potential benefits of digital manufacturing for a broad range of companies, particularly the assistance needed by small and medium-size manufacturers (SMMs) and the partnerships they would seek. The web-based survey received 321 qualified respondents from the U.S. manufacturing community. 258 (80%) of respondents came from some industrial or commercial ...

Cloud Computing Opportunities in HPC December 2009

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

Cloud computing is a new instantiation of distributed computing. It is built on grid computing concepts and technology and further enabled by internet technologies for access. Cloud computing is the delivery of some part of an IT workflow – such as computational cycles, data storage, or application hosting – using an internet-style interface. This definition includes organizational intranets with web browser interfaces for accessing private clouds. Cloud computing is currently driven by business models that attempt...
