High Performance Computing is particularly helpful for project development, contributing immensely to the different stages and aspects of a project. The concept of HPC has become increasingly popular in businesses and institutions of different sizes and nature, making the processes and stages involved in project development easy, smooth, and convenient.
Some of the contributions of High Performance Computing to project development are highlighted as follows:
Hardware and Networking
In the area of hardware and networking, HPC allows for the incorporation of newer, high-end commercial computers for assisting designers in understanding many of the bottlenecks involved in the project and the development process.
HPC also utilizes network simulation and formal modeling tools to verify the completeness of protocols, while evaluating the performance of the protocols.
HPC is also helpful in the software aspect of project development, with such tools as Sensitivity Analysis Tool for Tuning Parallel Code, Parallel Applications Development Environment, Portable and Adaptable High Performance Sparse Matrix Computations Software, and a Guide to Available Mathematical Software.
In the area of digital libraries, project development at HPCC allows for the development of a prototype system that makes it possible to search for bibliographic details in library systems. Other features under this category include Modular Client/Server for Information Retrieval and Segmentation of Scanned Complex Scientific Documents.
In the area of manufacturing in project
development at HPCC, the contributions include a system designed for the
development and demonstration of integration methods, the performance of remote
testing with industry collaborators, and dissemination of research information.
