Simulation workflow optimization has become an important investigation area, as it allows users to process large scale & heterogeneous problems in distributed environments in a more flexible way. The most characteristic categories of such problems come from the aerospace and the automotive industries. In this work a specially developed algorithm that is based on heuristic optimization techniques (Genetic Algorithms) is applied to deliver an optimized workflow implementation of an initial workflow schedule (PERT). In order to demonstrate its potentials, the algorithm is applied on a sample manufacturing product design problem that requires a lot of time consuming simulations & finite elements analysis under a constrained availability of computer resources
