LMS North America, leading partner in test and mechatronic simulation, is pleased to announce the full agenda for the 2012 LMS Americas Vehicle Conference to be held at the Detroit Athletic Club in Detroit, Michigan on the 19th and 20th of June. This special conference will be filled with valuable content, excellent speakers, application presentations and celebration events as we commemorate the 20th Anniversary of LMS North America. We chose the Detroit Athletic Club to celebrate the heritage of the Automotive Industry in Detroit and to have a unique meeting place for this important conference.

The conference will host the following keynote speakers:

  • Mr. Dan Nicholson, Executive Director, Drivability, Calibration & Validation – GM
  • Dr. Mircea Gradu, Vice President Powertrain, Transmission & Driveline Engineering – Chrysler
  • Dr. ir. Jan Leuridan – Chief Technical Officer – LMS International
  • Lunch Speaker: Mr. Nizar Trigui – Global Chief Engineer, Vehicle Energy Management – Ford

“We are greatly pleased that Mr. Dan Nicholson, Dr. Mircea Gradu and Mr. Nizar Trigui will present their visionary approach to the eco- and brand value engineering challenges in the automotive sector.” commented Marc Boonen, President – LMS Americas. “Our aim is to provide a meeting place for the automotive and ground vehicle community to exchange ideas and find ways to respond to the current challenges in the industry. We are excited for this event, our 12th Annual Conference in Michigan!”

The afternoon of the 19th will have two interactive management panel sessions with industry leaders discussing the following; 1. “The Strategic Importance of System Engineering & Controls Integration,” and 2. “The Changing Role of Testing & its Importance to Vehicle Development.” These interactive sessions offer valuable information for the audience in the beautiful main dining room of the Detroit Athletic Club.

The Second day of the conference will host leading engineering application cases presented by our customers and other experts on the use of LMS solutions and technology to solve their engineering needs. These presentations will be categorized into three tracks covering NVH Engineering, System Simulation and Controls Engineering providing a view on our customer’s engineering and technology successes. Customer applications include Chrysler, Audi, Mitsubishi, FAW, Changan Automotive, hofer powertrain, Toyota, Denso and others along with university and technology presentations.

The two-day conference is the ideal venue to discover real-life business applications and the latest technological evolutions presented by leading industry experts, and to experience test and mechatronic simulation solutions from LMS and its partners. The conference will bring together engineering executives, senior managers, and technical experts who will share strategies that illustrate how simulation supported by continuous progress in physical testing has helped them optimize their products and product development processes.

LMS North America, leading partner in test and mechatronic simulation, and dSPACE, a global provider of solutions for developing ECU software and mechatronic controls, are pleased to announce the keynote speakers for the 2011 Aerospace Engineering Conference to be held Aug. 29-30, 2011, at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach, California.

This year’s conference will host the following keynote speakers:

* Steve Iden, Integrated Vehicle and Energy Technology (INVENT) Program Manager at  Air Force Research Labs (AFRL)
* Masa Hirvonen, ManagerITF, Systems Engineering and Analysis, Honda Aircraft Company Inc.,
* Eng Carlos Henrique Berto, Manager Systems development, optimization and integration - Embraer
* Kevin Kott, President  of dSPACE, Inc.
* Dirk Van den Berghen, Executive Vice-President & Chief Sales Operations Officer of LMS

"We are greatly pleased that Mr. Steve Iden and Mr. Masa Hirvonen will present their visionary approach to the unique engineering challenges in the aerospace industry," commented Marc Boonen, President – LMS Americas. "Our mutual aim is to provide a meeting place for the aviation and space community to exchange ideas and find ways to respond to the current challenges in the industry." Commented Kevin Kott, President – dSPACE Inc.  

The 2011 Americas Aerospace Engineering Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to explore the latest technological evolution in mechatronic simulation, systems integration and test-based engineering processes contributing to faster aircraft development maturity and better risk mitigation.

Leading Aviation and Space manufacturers and integrators are focused on the continued advance of mechatronic systems, dynamic systems engineering and systems integration to enhance their product performance, while improving efficiency and power management. Crucial to this focus is earlier development and integration of control systems using a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) development process.  This process combines the classical mechanical product development process in parallel with the electrical and software development to bring products to market faster with improved performance.  LMS and dSPACE solutions and services are complimentary in this domain, and this conference will provide customer cases and real-world examples of these solutions benefiting our customers.

LMS offers physical testing, virtual simulation and model-based systems engineering solutions and services for mission critical attributes such as power & energy management, ground loads, ECS, flight controls, systems integration and structural dynamics.  dSPACE offers integrated hardware and software tools for developing and testing electronic control units. dSPACE systems are used in all stages of product development from initial validation of ideas to software validation and verification in production programs. dSPACE tools contribute significantly to increasing product quality/reliability by providing test systems and in reducing development costs by increasing rate of innovation and efficiency in bringing products to market.The first day (August 29th) of the conference will include keynote presentations by our customers and senior leadership in the morning followed by lunch.  The afternoon will include management presentations by key customers on the application of leading edge technologies to advance their product development process.  The second day of the conference will provide customer application presentations, technology updates and technical workshops for our attendees to see and learn from their colleagues and experts from LMS and dSPACE.

This conference will bring together engineering executives, senior managers, and technical experts who will share strategies that illustrate how simulation, supported by continuous progress in physical testing, has helped them optimize their products and product development processes.
