Success Stories Of CloudFlow

The application experiments are examples of innovative use cases in product and process development/simulation. The use cases have been selected based on their high potential to benefit from Cloud technology for easier and more affordable access to complex computational engineering services and workflows. CloudFlow has especially focused on use cases addressing stages in the virtual product development of mechatronic systems, such as design, simulation, optimization, visualization and covering workflows along the value chain in and across companies. Another innovative field for use cases in CloudFlow is simulation of manufacturing processes/tools. The use cases are mostly driven by the end user, a manufacturing company which is preferably an SME.


Key Highlights:

The success stories are giving an overview about the economic and technical impacts the different application experiments reached during project duration of one year. Here we are highlighting some of the most impressive impacts for the participating companies and their products:

  • reducing development time from 3-5 months to 1-2 months. Read More...
  • reduced fan power consumption from 4 kWel to 2.75 kWel (> 30 percent). Read More...
  • clients will save electricity cost that amounts to about 350,000 euros per year. Read More...
  • potential for massive savings on natural resources in the production of MEMS sensors. Read More...
  • huge number of variants in a very short calculation time. Read More...
