Benchmarking Industrial Use of High Performance Computing for Innovation

This study benchmarks the U.S. aerospace, automotive, bio-life sciences and energy industries’ use of high performance computing (HPC) to drive innovation for global competitiveness. It is the first study to attempt to do this and to understand how deeply within each industry’s supply chain HPC has been embraced. The most noteworthy finding was that U.S. tier 1 energy firms are outpacing other U.S. industries in integrating HPC into critical business functions. The most unexpected finding was that few suppliers to U.S. tier 1 companies in the surveyed industries use HPC (or even desktop workstations) today.
