Abstract

In complex product design enterprise, different departments establish private simulation centers (including computing clusters, application software, job scheduling system etc.), and the resource utilization of each simulation cluster is uneven. So the whole enterprise simulation resources cannot be fully effective used,resulting in low efficiency of simulation and long time waiting. This paper proposed a method of simulation job cooperative scheduling on the clusters with heterogeneous systems, in order to reduce the waiting time after submitting jobs, so it can achieve efficient use of simulation resources in whole enterprise. The instance of one actual simulation problem in this paper shown the job execution time is reduced, and the scheduling method is highly efficient and reliable.
