IPS Cable Simulation is the worldwide leading technology for the simulation of wires, wiring harnesses and hoses. Its accuracy is unique due to algorithms developed in Fraunhofer research considering physically correct material properties and gravity. In addition to realistic simulation, the program provides visualization in real time, which enables interactive working.
The software is very successful in benchmarking and it already is integrated into the product process of leading automotive companies.
