Simulation workflows for Arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian (ALE) methods are highly complex and often require a manual tuning process. There is an urgent need to semi-automate this process to reduce user burden and improve productivity. To address this need, we are developing novel predictive analytics for simulations and an in situ infrastructure for integration of analytics. Our ongoing goals are to predict simulation failures ahead of time and proactively avoid them as much as possible.
