 Enhance your workflow efficiency to make faster decisions

Convinced that an intuitive environment will foster your workflow efficiency, we brought major improvements in our platform attributes, like:

  • High Performance Computing (HPC) job submission and monitoring
  • On-the-fly alignment of components in the sketch
  • Automatic completion in expression fields
  • Model upgrade with a dedicated assistant
  • Easier way to plot batch variants
  • Batch support for Bode, Black-Nichols, Nyquist plots
  • Radar charts creation in apps (spider chart / webmap)
  • Horizontal and stacked bar charts creation in apps

Optimize development workflow with software interoperability

Interoperability and openness are key to streamline the simulation process. With this in mind, we complemented the link of our LMS Imagine.Lab platform to the CAE/CAD world with:

  • CAD import for automatic LMS Amesim sketch generation
  • Unified FMI workflow with 2.0 support and real-timpe compatibility
  • Fully automated process for importing Modelica models
  • Co-simulation capabilities with Flux® and JMAG-RT
