AVL List, a provider of engineering services, simulation and testing technology for powertrain systems, and PDTec AG, a supplier of software and services for engineering data management, as well as simulation data management, have signed as partners.
Within the scope of the partnership AVL selected the data management platform ice. NET by PDTec to develop a model data management system on the platform for its simulation products Model.CONNECT, CRUISE M, FIRE M and EXCITE to be offered globally.
“AVL will offer its customers a powerful, comprehensive and robust solution for the management of simulation models on system and component level. We consider the partnership with PDTec as a perfect opportunity to build upon an established and proven technology as offered by ice.NET. Hence we could realise a model data management system for our simulation products Model.CONNECT and CRUISE M in the shortest possible time frame. In the future we will provide the solution also for our simulation products FIRE M and EXCITE,” explained Dr. Jürgen Krasser, Manager Software Development at AVL.
PDTec has emphasised this partnership to be an important milestone for the company to consequently execute its partner strategy. “We are very pleased that AVL’s customers will soon be able to use a data management system within their familiar AVL simulation environment,” said Albrecht Pfaff, Head of Sales at PDTec AG. “AVL’s simulation software is a widespread technology for powertrain systems, used daily and successfully by thousands of engineers. The new data management solution will help development engineers to save valuable development time and offers major advantages with its structured model filing system.”
PDTec's software SimData Manager, Collaboration Portal, CAD Portal and ice.NET are mainly used in the automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding and general machinery industries and are also used by the energy and electronics industries as well as in information technology.
