On 24/25 October 2018, BMW hosted its 14th IT show for employees from IT and specialist departments, suppliers and partners in Munich’s Zenith Halle for the 14th time. As expected, the event was entitled “Digitization” in all phases of the product life cycle.

fleXstructures and the BMW specialist department “plunged” with the visitors into the world of immersive experience. With the help of the Virtual Reality solution for IPS Cable Simulation, a current V8 engine including front axle and all flexible cables and hoses could be experienced. The visitors were particularly impressed by the possibility to make design changes to the flexible components and to receive feedback in real time with regard to mountability and assurance of the functional properties. In addition, the VR solution offers a valuable instrument for cooperation within the team and beyond.

Due to the regular, organized BMW employee tours and the additional, lively visitor crowd, the VR equipment for IPS Cable Simulation was constantly in use and some visitors requested follow-up appointments to evaluate the application possibilities for their concrete tasks.

After the very good response, the VR solution for IPS Cable Simulation will be presented at the next internal BMW event, the Digital Day in April 2019.

Our second stop in Asia brought us to Tokyo where the 3rd Japanese IPS Cable Simulation User Conference took place with more than 130 participants from different industries.

The development of motorcycles using IPS and use cases of the construction machinery industry presented by Kobelco where highlights on the industrial application side.

Here you can see news about IPS presented during the event:

  • Digital human modelling simulation with IPS IMMA
  • The Virtual Reality solution for IPS
  • The new Release IPS 3.6

Many thanks to our partner SCSK for the great organization.

We offer basic and expert training courses for IPS Cable Simulation on a regular basis.

Logo_IPS_CableSimulationThe expert trainings can be individualized and adapted to the customer’s needs. Depending on the customer’s experience with IPS, this training can also include one day of basic training. On the second day individual customer problems can be treated, if customer data is provided and shared with us for preparation upfront. In the sessions, the problems and tasks will be solved interactively with the trainers to provide an immediate start of work. An expert training session also presents a good occasion for our long-term customers to get to know new features and special functionalities of the software.

Please contact us to receive more information about our training possibilities and to make an appointment.
