Simulation and virtual prototyping play an increasingly important role in engineering and design processes in the manufacturing industry. More often, to reproduce the complexity of a system, engineering software is avid of computational resources. For this reason, CINECA decided on 2003 to establish a new company, SCS Super Computing Solutions, whose mission is to facilitate the use of High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructures and allow the access to advanced applications of numerical simulation in an industrial context: an absolutely necessary tool for modern R&D activity. SCS aims at facilitating and strengthening R&D processes in the manufacturing industry by providing its customers an integrated package of HPC services.
