Abstract:   CloudSME is a European research and development project that develops a cloud-based one-stop-shop solution to provide a scalable platform for small or larger scale simulations and enable the wider take-up of simulation technologies, especially in manufacturing and engineering SME's. The CloudSME Simulation Platform supports end user SME's to utilise customised simulation applications in the form of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based provision. Moreover, simulation software service providers and consulting companies have access to a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution that allows them to quickly assemble custom simulation solutions in the cloud for their clients. The CloudSME Simulation Platform is being built on existing and proven technologies enabling the project to deliver its results faster. The project is working on the implementation of five use-cases to showcase its technology, with further 6-8 uses-cases being included later as a result of an open call.  Current scenarios include discrete event simulation for manufacturing, for example supply chain optimisation, capacity management or maintenance planning, data mining for the optimisation of aircraft maintenance, fluid dynamics simulation, and tailored shoe insole design. The presentation will provide an overview of the CloudSME simulation platform and illustrate its usability by showcasing some of the already implemented use-cases.
