Protoplanetary disc simulation must be done first, with high precision, and second, with high speed. Some strategies to reach these goals are presented in the paper. They include: the reduction of the 3D protoplanetary disc model to quasi-3D, the use of fundamental Poisson equation solution, the simulation in the natural (cylindrical) coordinate system and computation domain decomposition. The domain decomposition strategy is shown to reach the simulation goals the best.
