3 Mission Statement of BREIN BREIN (Business objective driven REliable and Intelligent grids for real busiNess) Project Start: September 2006 BREIN will realise the flexible, intelligent Virtual Organisation support to significantly reduce the complexity of modern day business-to-business collaborations. Companies and enterprises of any size will be able to compete equally in a complex and demanding market. Status 6/2007: First tests with prototypes for Stuttgart Airport Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 3

4 BREIN in a Nutshell Coordinated by Telefonica I+D and technically lead by U. Stuttgart –Best combination for exploitation and research success 16 partners with end-user involvement –Proven complementarities and experience 9.3M (6.6M funding) for 3 years –Challenging results with clear value for money Highly innovative integrating Multi-agent and Semantic Web concepts in the grid –a significant step forward High strategic impact thanks to business orientation –Two main scenarios to gain real business requirements: Virtual Engineering Virtual Organization (Stakeholder: ANSYS) Virtual Hub flights (Stuttgart Airport) Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 4

6 BREIN in a Nutshell Main Objectives: –Autonomy and Automation Integration of Multiagent, Grid, Semantic Web and Security concepts –Optimisation with respect to the individual business goals and needs –Semantic-Aware Security Enhance security mechanisms with semantic web technology –Reduced Complexity Simplified provisioning and usage of services Increased support for defining and enacting business objectives –Foster existing Results No start from scratch –Public Awareness Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 6

8 Airport Background The airport offers services to the airlines like –Catering, Fuelling, Luggage transportation, etc… The respective service providers are contractually bound prior to any arriving airplanes They are not integrated into the organisation on a per usage basis but are a part of the organisation Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 8

9 The Airport Virtual Organisation The principal Virtual Organisation in the airport scenario is basically static: –most participants in daily tasks are known and already contractually bound –new airlines (and hence airplanes) are integrated via intensive negotiations and henceforth considered part of the VO As opposed to the classical Virtual Organisation, contracts are not established and negotiated on the fly We thus have to distinguish two types of contracts, respectively Service Level Agreements in the airport scenario 1.The base contract or base SLA that defines what the individual VO participants have to provide to the VO and in what manner generally (basic cost etc.) 2.The individual, task-specific SLA that defines how the service is to be provided to in an individual case (such as an arriving airplane) Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 9

10 Focus of the ANSYS Scenario Formation and management of resources of a Virtual Organisation (VO) VO is formed for performing virtual engineering design Goal of the VO is to enable teams of engineers to participate from remote locations and to collaborate in a distributed design process using simulation and visualisation software tools A Virtual Engineering Virtual Organisation Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 10

11 The ANSYS Scenario - Simulation Driven Product Development Goals –Reduce design cycle time –Increase product quality and reduce environmental footprint –Reduce costs (development, manufacturing and life cycle costs) –Reduce risks Need to automate the design process as much as possible –evaluate large numbers of independent design solutions quickly and cheaply –Each calculation could take a lot of computing resources –Eg Robust Design, Design of Experiments, 6 Sigma, design optimisation… –Review the designs with the stakeholders GRID computing is a potential enabling technology –But many practical considerations to be taken into account Virtual Engineering Scenario in BREIN – define requirements for Concurrent Engineering – test and evaluate the results –Led by ANSYS Europe Ltd. and driven by their customer requirements Picture courtesy David Brown Union Pumps, UK Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 11

Propietary13 ANSYS ´ Extensive customer base and channel >10,000 companies 93 of the top Fortune 100 industrial companies >100,000 commercial seats >135,000 university seats >200 channel partners >50 industry partners > Employees > 8 Development Centres in Europe > A complex Virtual Organisation in its own right

14 Concurrent Engineering Requirements Design Calculations require heavy resources (software licences, cpu cycles) during particular phases of the design/product life cycle, and limited resources in between. The market needs are too diverse to provide single Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software to cover all requirements. Flexible workflows a are therefore required to capture the essentials of the design processes, linking together different software packages. Many companies do not have the expertise and resources to set up the required infrastructure, and will need to bring in additional consultants and resources to collaborate. Each End User Company may wish to outsource the service, and not keep an up-to-date capability for the expertise, software, hardware and infrastructure underpinning the simulations Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 14

15 Why is BREIN needed for Virtual Engineering End User companies may wish that large numbers of users in VO are able to access technology (but controlled) Final Design Reviews could take the form of collaborative activities –Several groups reviewing the design calculations and conclusions –Commissioning new runs to complete the design space Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 15

16 Identified Common High Level requirements Business Objectives of the differing partners of the VO have still to be defined by their own business policies potential conflicts have to be dealt by BREIN –End Users want to minimise costs Vs. Service Provider wants to maximise profit Automated complex negotiation Robust management of dynamic processes Security, auditability, transparency –I want to get paid for the work –I want to know whos using it –I want to check its being used properly –I want to protect my proprietary information Discovery of resources (hardware, software, availability of licences) Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 16

18 Current Status of the Project Finished Project Month 12 Finished Activties on Rapid Protoyping: –Initial Evaluations on how Multiagent concepts, Semantic Web methodologies can be intergrated in the Grid Public Document on Validation Scenarios available First version of overall architecture defined Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 18

19 Next Steps Increased Implementation Activities –First Protoype scheduled for PM 18 (02/08) Update of architecture based on evaluation and feedback of performed test in the rapid prototyping activities and the implementation activities Publication of project results Towards an intelligent Grid for BusinessPage 19
