Open system for collaborative design

Objective



The project is concerned with multi-partner collaborative design optimisation. This is a key area for future European industrial competitiveness, requiring leading-edge capabilities to improve designs whilst significantly reducing costs and time-to-market. The project will develop a system for product optimisation based on multiple objectives. The most important feature will be flexibility and the ability to accommodate the many diverse techniques currently in use across European industry. Design problems from five major industrial sectors will define the requirements of the system and will validate its effectiveness for diverse industrial applications. The optimisation of a design is highly computationally intensive. The project will use existing HPCN technology and parallel solvers. The system will be developed in three distinct phases, synchronised with user trials in the aerospace, shipbuilding, domestic appliance, heating and diesel engine sectors.
