scapos AG

Computer simulations are an indispensable tool in the design of products and production processes. Virtual models replace real models. Mathematics plays a fundamental role in the creation of this virtual world. Mathematical models cut horizontally across a landscape of vertically arranged scientific disciplines and technological applications. This transverse character of mathematics makes it a »generic technology«; as a basis for bridging into the simulation world, however, it also becomes the key technology for computer simulations which have found their way into nearly all areas of economic life.
At Fraunhofer ITWM and Fraunhofer SCAI we combine mathematical modelling with HPC expertise to provide powerful simulation tools.
