DEDICATION TO MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE
Aspen Systems’ core culture is driven by one driving principle, Mission Critical Quality. We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality High-Performance Computing products and services. We not only employ manufacturing industry-recognized systems to repeatedly produce the highest quality products, but we also add the best processes and systems used worldwide by proven manufacturing giants. We genuinely believe our quality is second to none in HPC. We are forever on the quest to improve as there is always more to learn to be a leader in world-class quality.
HOW WE DRIVE OUR MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE
It is easy to talk about quality and very difficult to embed it into the culture to develop the best possible processes in manufacturing. Quality is a journey that never ends. The data points, the human feedback, and the MTBF (mean time between failures) analysis all lead to our investments and improvements in quality.
Statement of Work
Aspen Systems provides our customers with an online SOW (Statement of Work) that is second to none. This interactive resource allows you to customize every piece of your individualized system build. This tool will detail to our engineers precisely what you need, from software to hardware. You can retrieve your SOW electronically anytime for reference and review as often as needed. Whether you’re building a Top 500 supercomputer, petabytes of storage, or you have the most complex software or security requirements; our clients can rest assured that Aspen Systems will build your products to your exact specifications.
We have selected our vendors based on the ability to provide the best support, service, and quality, with a keen eye for timely delivery. These partners are part of our team, ensuring you the best in HPC products and services. We share our best practices and strong communications with them to keep all projects in sync and constraint-free to achieve Mission Critical Quality.

Packaging is often overlooked and underrated, but it is a crucial step in the delivery process of a perfect system. Aspen Systems has paired with FedEx packaging engineers to design and improve the methodology behind ideal shipment materials. We have customized pallets for rack systems, making it so they are ready to run as soon as they are rolled off the delivery truck. Whether a single server or several racks, Aspen Systems ensures your build will be fully intact and ready to be deployed as soon as your product arrives.
