NOESIS Solutions to Focus on Process Integration and Design Optimization
Leuven, Belgium and Troy, MI - June 9, 2003 - LMS International, the
worldwide leader in Testing systems, CAE software and engineering services
for functional performance engineering, today announced the launch of a new
subsidiary company, NOESIS Solutions. The new company will focus on the
Process Integration and Design Optimization (PIDO) market, a segment
predicted to be one of the fastest growing in the mechanical design
automation market over the next decade. NOESIS Solutions will further build
on the strong capabilities of the LMS Optimus product that support engineers
in automating their analysis processes, in quickly investigating multiple
design options, and finding the most robust designs for product lifecycle
"Major manufacturers around the world adopted LMS Optimus and recognize it
as an excellent product and a superior technology platform for the PIDO
market", says Dr. Urbain Vandeurzen, Chairman and CEO of LMS, International.
"Creating a separate company with its own identity and a clear focus will
assure an aggressive drive to become the market leader in the segment.
Unlike most start-ups, NOESIS Solutions will have the benefit of a mature
technology, a strong customer base and a worldwide distribution in place,
right from the start."
"NOESIS, the ancient Greek word for knowledge and understanding, reflects
the mission of our new company - empowering our customers in gaining deeper
insight in their design, and quickly finding the most optimal and robust
design option", says Hans Wynendaele, President of NOESIS Solutions.
Hans Wynendaele has entrepreneurial experience as a founder of Numerical
Integration Technologies, which was acquired by LMS in 1993, and subsequent
senior management experience in a number of key positions within LMS,
including Vice President of the CAE Division.
NOESIS Solutions will continue to leverage LMS distribution into the major
mechanical industries but, in parallel, develop additional channels into new
markets. LMS International will further market the Optimus technology, and
will integrate Optimus functionality in LMS Virtual.Lab, its integrated
environment for functional performance engineering.
