PINEAPL (Parallel Industrial NumErical Applications and Portable Libraries) is an ESPRIT project, in the area of High Performance Computing and Networking, with partners from industral, academic and research organizations. The aim of the PINEAPL project is to produce a library of parallel numerical software that is relevant to a wide range of industrial applications. Therefore, the choice of the areas of numerical software is driven by the applications provided by the industrial partners. In this paper we describe the structure and the strategies of the project and report on progress so far. Moreover, as an example, we present an application provided by an industrial partner and the parallel routine that has been developed taking into account the requirements of the application.
