Grid computing supports a host of research areas, but it still lacks successful case studies concerning real-world industrial problems. This lack of work relates to difficulties faced by scientists and engineers, mostly due to two Achilles’ heels of Grid computing: incompleteness of resource information and high execution failure rates. This paper shows an… (More)
Grid computing supports a host of research areas, but it still lacks successful case studies concerning industrial problems. This paper shows an application developed to profit from grid computing resources to support the product-mix decision making in a plastic company.
