LMS International and hofer powertrain teaming up for improved powertrain performance
|April 4, 2012, Leuven (Belgium) - LMS International, the leading partner in test and mechatronic system simulation, is pleased to announce it has entered into a partnership with hofer, the well-known German powertrain system, component and service provider.
After several years of cooperation, LMS and hofer are consolidating a long-term relationship through wider deployment of the best-in-class LMS Imagine.Lab simulation tool - expected to further contribute to improved quality and time to market of hofer's products and services. Thanks to the partnership, LMS will also benefit by further optimizing its system simulation solution for powertrain through regular feedback from the undisputed technological expertise of hofer's engineers. .
With this agreement LMS clearly expresses its goal to further increase the quality of its support to existing and new clients, while hofer powertrain demonstrates its commitment to LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim in supporting its development and engineering activities.
"hofer's independent and cutting-edge perspective provides valuable input for LMS. We recognize hofer as a highly qualified partner in the powertrain domain. We are proud to collaborate and share our knowledge in system simulation and we are eager to receive their expert feedback", states Nicolas Orand, Director of LMS Imagine.Lab products.
"By using LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim during the last 6 years, hofer was able to improve the development of powertrains significantly, especially for intelligent transmissions, hybrid and e-mobility projects. The capability to predict the dynamic behavior of complicated systems in different conditions results in a much higher product quality and customer satisfaction in our engineering projects. The outstanding performance and support as well as the quick feedback to customer requests made LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim our preferred system simulation tool. We are very pleased to get the chance to influence the development of the tool even more in the future", states Thomas Hackl, Business Unit Manager for System Simulation and System Analysis at hofer powertrain.
