Is Promethee environment intended to replace a standard grid (HPC) system ?

Yes or no.
Yes: if you just need to distribute calculations over may CPUs: Promethee can do this, with less constraints and more efficiency in general (say merging heterogeneous hardware and software for instance).
No: if you need High Performance Computing infrastructure (HPC) for parallelization of simulations over thousands of CPU, Promethee is NOT the solution to replace a true Unix queueing system. Nevertheless, you can also merge Promethee in an existing queueing environment, where Promethee just stands for another user of the queue.
