Rolling bearing simulations are very computationally intensive and need to utilize the potential of parallel computing.

The load distribution over the processors in a rolling bearing simulation is very dynamic. In this paper we present the Adaptive Scheduling Strategy Optimizer (ASSO) for scheduling parallel simulations. The result of this is that the application can automatically select a near optimal scheduling strategy (with respect to the available scheduling strategies). The ASSO is used daily in real bearing simulations.
