High Performance Computing for Manufacturing
On March 2-3, 2017, HPC4Mfg hosted the first Industry Engagement Day at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in San Diego. Approximately 100 participants convened for the two-day meeting to identify ways to build on the program’s two-year success and broaden the base of industry partners. Representatives from over 30 different industries, universities, eight national labs, and DOE headquarters discussed ways to overcome barriers and refine collaboration between industry and the national laboratories.
The HPC for Manufacturing Program (HPC4Mfg) Program unites the world-class computing resources and expertise of Department of Energy national laboratories with the U.S. manufacturers to deliver solutions that could revolutionize manufacturing.
Led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and joined by its partners, Lawrence Berkeley and Oak Ridge national laboratories, HPC4Mfg offers a low-risk path for U.S. manufacturing companies interested in adopting high-performance computing (HPC) technology to advance clean energy technologies and increase energy efficiency while reducing risk of HPC adoption.
The HPC4Mfg Program aims to:
- Infuse advanced computing expertise and technology into the manufacturing industry.
- Advance innovative clean energy technologies.
- Reduce energy and resource consumption.
- Strengthen your company’s competitiveness.
The Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) within the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Office, sponsors this Program. Non-partner national laboratories may participate on projects with compliance to the governance document.
HPC4Mfg Brings Value to Industry
Through HPC4Mfg, industrial partners collaborate with national laboratory experts in advanced modeling, simulation, and data analysis on project teams to address:
- Process optimization and design.
- Quality improvement.
- Performance and failure prediction.
- Accelerating or eliminating testing.
- Shortening time-to-adoption.
HPC4Mfg issues a solicitation two times a year, in the spring and fall. The process begins with a short concept paper.
