Cloud based Simulation platform for Manufacturing and Engineering

Summary
CloudSME is an European project (FP7) with the main goal of bringing SMEs closer to cloud computing. CloudSME project will establish a Cloud Simulation Platform, which enables particularly small and medium-sized manufacturing and engineering companies (SMEs), to use state of the art simulation technology as a Service (SaaS, one-stop-shop, pay-per-use) in the cloud. Thus, they don’t have to make high investments in software licenses, required hardware or maintenance and can solely use the benefits of simulation to enhance their productivity. Why Simulation? Developing a new business idea or investing in new technologies and methods poses a huge challenge to companies. To simulate a process or a system, or to design a model with simulation software means to pretest its behavior, so that it matches the real system. Simulation thus will avoid bad investments, enabling you to detect weaknesses and failures in your workflows or in your products in advance.
