Maplesoft extends Portfolio with Consulting Services
News Release from:
17 July 2012
Adept Scientific has long offered its own consultation resources to customers across their product range. In a move to enhance this offering, Adept is now able to formally call upon Maplesoft's newly created professional consultancy services which will complement Adept's expertise and provide a project implementation route for customers.
Maplesoft’s professional consulting services aims to strengthen its portfolio of offerings for system-level modelling and simulation with Maplesoft consultants available to help engineers reduce development time and risk, as well as create better products.
Maplesoft has extensive expertise in system-level modelling and simulation, covering a wide range of applications and industries. Maplesoft’s Modelica-based consulting services include model development and simulation services, analysis and tool development, real-time plant-model code generation and training. Maplesoft specialises in the modelling, simulation and optimisation of complex multidomain systems. Consultants will draw on the expertise gained from past and current consulting projects, which include the development of a specialised driveline component library, multiple projects with a leading automotive manufacturer to help them move to a model-based development process, the development of battery models for EV and HEV systems, vibration analysis of drivetrain models for marine drivelines and multiple projects involving the development of custom components and solutions in the areas of robotics, mechatronics, motion control, aerospace, power and energy.
The open, object-oriented, physical modelling language, Modelica, is at the core of most of Maplesoft’s development projects: Modelica-based tools have experienced wide-spread adoption over the past two decades. Maplesoft is committed to supporting the Modelica open standard and the development of a common pool of knowledge that can assist engineering organisations to efficiently develop innovative processes and products that will ultimately benefit everyone. Since Modelica components have been developed and validated by industry, engineers can have confidence that their models will provide an accurate representation of the system.
“For some time now, our customers have been telling us that they have gaps in their resources when it comes to implementing system-level modelling and simulation projects and this initiative is a direct response to that request,” said Paul Goossens, Vice President, Applications Engineering, Maplesoft. “We believe our Modelica-based expertise will help customers with the smooth implementation of modelling strategies, reduce risk of project slip or failure and maximise return on investment.”
Maplesoft uses the Modelica-based modelling tool MapleSim for most development projects, though they also offer expertise in other tools. The combination of Modelica’s system-level modelling language with the symbolic computational power of MapleSim enables a level of understanding, power and extensibility that is not possible with ‘black-box’ tools. Through its advanced automatic code-generation technologies, Maplesoft can help deploy models to the rest of the toolchain, including in-house tools, MATLAB and Simulink, optimisation tools, co-simulation platforms and real-time systems for hardware-in-the-loop testing.
The close working relationship between Adept Scientific and Maplesoft will continue to grow to give customers a complementary, all-round service.
The Maplesoft product range is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and the Nordic countries.
