Published March 2011

This case study was produced as part of a project that was created to demonstrate the business and competitive value of modeling, simulation and analysis with HPC in the U.S. private sector, motivate usage of this innovation-accelerating technology throughout the DoD’s supply chain, and identify technologies and
partners that can help support an HPC infrastructure for the DoD supply chain base. It was led by the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute (ISI) and supported by funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under contract number FA8750-08-C-0184. DARPA is the central research and development office for the U.S. Department of Defense. DARPA’s mission is to maintain the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent technological surprise from harming our national security. For more information, see
