Integration platform for multidiscipline optimization applications

Participants : Toan Nguyen, Laurentiu Trifan.

A prototype software integration platform is developed and tested for multidiscipline optimization applications. It is based on a workflow management system called YAWL (http://www.yawlfoundation.org ). The goal is to design, develop and assess high-performance distributed scientific workflows featuring resilience, fault-tolerance and exception-handling capabilities. The platform is used to experiment new resilience algorithms, including monitoring and management of application-level errors. The platform is tested against use-cases provided by the industry partners in the OMD2 project supported by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche. This work is part of Laurentiu Trifan's PhD thesis. (See Fig. 2 .)
