|Research and Development|
The Fraunhofer-Institut für Techno- und Wirtschaftsmathematik (ITWM) in Kaiserslautern, Germany belongs to the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, which is a society for applied research. The main aim of this institute is to utilize applied mathematics for the industry and economy. Innovative simulation technologies are important in this field. This research led to the development of IPS Cable Simulation.
The specific competence of the Fraunhofer ITWM is the mathematical approach to practical problems. Mathematical methods are used for creating digital models of reality and for processing large amounts of data or complex structures in an appropriate way. Optimal solutions for technical problems can be achieved by means of simulation.
The main focuses of the institute are among others on optimization of production processes and virtual material design.
Fraunhofer ITWM and its spinn-off fleXstructures GmbH still cooperate in joint research projects.

The Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Centre for Industrial Mathematics (FCC) has been founded by Chalmers and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft to undertake and enhance mathematical research to the benefits of industry, commerce and public institutions.
The conception of mathematics as a key technology for industrial innovation is essential, since it is the key technology to the virtual world – no simulation without mathematics. FCC develops simulation methods for prediction, control, optimization, quality assurance and risk assessment.
IPS Cable Simulation was developed at FCC in cooperation with Fraunhofer ITWM. fleXstructures GmbH and FCC still work together closely in research projects.

|Sales and Marketing
IPS AB was founded in 2012 as a spin-off company of the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre to handle marketing, sales and support of the IPS software. In 2014 the subsidiary company IPS IBOFlow AB was founded, which is entrusted with the products for the simulation of surface treatment processes, like IPS Virtual Paint. Both companies are located in Gothenburg, Sweden. They are now responsible for support, marketing and sales of IPS products in Scandinavia and in the United States.
