Abstract:

The goal of this effort was to stimulate and facilitate wider usage of high performance computing HPC across the private sector to propel productivity, innovation, and competitiveness. The council on Competitiveness Council confirmed 14 industrial 1 Museum executives to give presentations at SC07, the annual international supercomputing conference to be held November 12-16, 2007. Presentations focused on how their organizations are using high performance computing to drive competitive advantage. The Council targeted four Masterworks speakers representing Ping Golf, Whirlpool, Goodyear, and Pioneer Hi-Bred to conduct case studies on the business and competitiveness value they have received from using HPC. Case studies explain in laymens terms the problems these firms solved and the returns they achieved are necessary and important tools for building the business case for HPC and expanding its use across the U.S. industrial base, particularly among small and mid-sized companies that are in DoDs supply chain but have not yet embraced this technology.
