Optimization of Electrical Machines in the Cloud with SyMSpace by LCM

Presented at NAFEMS DACH regional conference for numerical simulation methods by LCM and cloudSME in Wiesbaden on the 14th of November 2019.

The Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH showcased how they easily optimize electrical drive engines in the cloud.

We supported LCM to work out the right cloud-based service solutions for their customers based on their existing software. By respecting the latest developments in the industry and science, including security and privacy compliance and hosting flexibility (free choice of data centre, no vendor lock-in).

Check out their cool System Model Space "SyMSpace" for electrical drive engines and trusted by industrial partners! ( #poweredbycloudSME

Yes, Cloud Computing is offering a broad range of actions and can be confusing. You want to dig deeper?
