Meet Phoenix Integration at the AIAA SciTech Forum | Orlando, FL | USA
Phoenix Integration is a Proud Exhibitor and Presenter at the 2020 AIAA SciTech Forum, on January 6-10, 2020.
Visit our Booth #224 and learn how ModelCenter can create and automate multi-tool workflows, optimize product designs, and enable Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).
Attend our Technical Presentation, Application of ModelCenter to Real World Distributed and Parallel Execution Challenges, presented by Dr. Andy Ko, Director, Engineering Services on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, at 2:30 pm in the Orlando Ballroom N.
Phoenix Integration worked with Lockheed Martin to apply ModelCenter software in a distributed and parallel computing context using ad hoc resources to the execution of MDO workflows for conceptual design of an aircraft. In the course of this work, the authors identified issues with automation of analysis tools in a parallel context, and developed methods to overcome those issues. The authors also performed a series of studies and to understand and characterize the performance of workflow execution using load balancing systems and ad hoc compute resources. Results of these studies indicate that while lighter workloads appear to scale well, more intensive workloads featuring heavy file I/O operations appear to be resource limited and prone to failure at higher levels of parallelization on each compute node, while scaling to higher number of compute nodes would be a more effective application of available resources.
