Large manufacturers increasingly leverage modeling and simulation to improve quality and reduce cost. Small manufacturers have not adopted these techniques due to sizable upfront costs for expertise, software and hardware. The Software as a Service (SaaS) model provides access to applications hosted in a cloud environment, allowing users to try services at low cost and scale as needed. We have extended SaaS to include highperformance computing-hosted applications, thus creating Simulation as a… CONTINUE READING
