A-WARE: An easy way to access grid resources

Project ID: 034545
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The main use case for the project comes from an aircraft company. Its engineers need to orchestrate different software applications, running in a heterogeneous environment, in order to perform an analysis of the noise inside the pilot cabin of the aircraft. This is achieved through a simulation involving multiple acoustic and geometrical parameters simultaneously. The existing solution implied manual "orchestration" through executing shell scripts, checking files and transferring data from one machine to another. The project has developed a system which allows engineers to design and execute the workflow representing the simulation. They can execute the whole process automatically, designing it once and running multiple times, even changing the computing resources underneath without the need to redesign the workflow
