Department Description:

Sandia's Computational Simulation Group \(CSG\) is a highly integrated team of departments focused on delivering an integrated suite of trusted, world\-class, predictive engineering tools enabling multi\-physics analyses for national security and national competitiveness applications\. This suite of computational simulation tools and supporting framework is known as SIERRA and has explicit ties to the Labs' workflow, including geometry and meshing, design and optimization, visualization, and maintenance and support\. The CSG employs rigorous product development processes where staff are the key impetus for process improvements through adoption of new techniques and industry best practices\. SIERRA development is conducted under the principles of lean/agile software practices\. These development practices help ensure effective and efficient support to customers through a mature and integrated software infrastructure which is transparent across the customer base, regardless of missions/programs/projects\. For planning purposes, the infrastructure is subdivided into several components: algorithms and software development \(build environments, software quality tools, and software testing\), software deployment \(licensing, distribution, and export controls\), and the software maintenance and services \(software setup and updates, software training, and help desk\)\. This infrastructure serves as the foundation upon which systems and capabilities are built, tested, deployed, and sustained; and, the Computational Simulation Infrastructure Team is the coordination point for software development tools, processes, and end\-user distribution for the SIERRA suite of capabilities\.
