Siemens LMS Virtual.Lab Rev 13.2 | 8.2 Gb
LMS, which was acquired by Siemens in January 2013 and is now a business segment within Siemens PLM Software, has released an update for LMS Imagine.Lab 13, the state-of-the-art platform for mechatronic system simulation and collaborative multidisciplinary design.
The latest release, LMS Imagine.Lab Rev13, delivers a variety of new features and enhancements aimed at increasing platform openness and system integration efficiency while strengthening collaboration to master the complexity of even the most advanced products.
The latest release provides multiple modeling capabilities and methods for thermal fluid, electrical, internal combustion engine, transmission, mechanical 3D, and many other areas. These improvements expand the application possibilities for many types of industries while focusing on the automotive, ground vehicle, aeronautics, and mechanical industries. With additional Modelica support, LMS Imagine.Lab has become the first simulation platform to couple causal and acausal modeling into a single model, offering a best-in-class approach.
LMS bolsters not only Siemens PLM Software’s product simulation capability, but also its systems engineering modeling capability and the ability to provide physical tests to validate the virtual simulations. The vendor feels really good about this acquisition and how it is already being incorporated into its broad solution offerings, especially in light of the fact that its direct PLM and computer-aided design (CAD) competitors have nothing close to these capabilities.
Siemens PLM Software, Dassault Systemes, and Autodesk will fight for almost all possible computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and digital manufacturing capabilities and solutions. The computer-aided arms race will continue to escalate.
LMS is a leading provider of test and mechatronic simulation software and engineering services in the automotive, aerospace and other advanced manufacturing industries. As a business segment within Siemens PLM Software, LMS provides a unique portfolio of products and services for manufacturing companies to manage the complexities of tomorrow’s product development by incorporating model-based mechatronic simulation and advanced testing in the product development process. LMS tunes into mission-critical engineering attributes, ranging from system dynamics, structural integrity and sound quality to durability, safety and power consumption. With multi-domain and mechatronic simulation solutions, LMS addresses the complex engineering challenges associated with intelligent system design and model-based systems engineering. Thanks to its technology and more than 1250 dedicated people, LMS has become the partner of choice of more than 5000 manufacturing companies worldwide. LMS operates in more than 30 key locations around the world.
