E-Infrastructure: Europe Meets the e-Science Challenge
Mike Boniface and Colin Upstill, University of Southampton IT Innovation Centre


Figure 3: Aerospace design workflowSIMDAT will change the way we design artefacts from drugs to aeroplanes. It will enable chemists and engineers to access geometry information and simulation results in a transparent way. Actors in supply chains will have immediate access to modifications, which can be securely disclosed to them for their own tasks. For the first time, not only the shape of a product but also its functional characteristics will be part of an integrated software environment. The underlying set of distributed federated databases will be viewable as a one logical whole, enabling the use of powerful knowledge discovery techniques and transforming our ability to solve complex problems.
