Siemens Industry Software NV (SISW LMS) is a Belgian company, constituting the Simulation and Test Solutions (STS) business segment within Siemens PLM Software. SISW originated as LMS International, a spin-off company from the KU Leuven, developing into a world-leading position for advanced engineering solutions for the mechanical and mechatronic industry. In 2013, LMS was acquired by Siemens to complement its offering on design engineering software within the ”Digital Factory” division. More specifically, SISW LMS develops and markets testing systems, multi-domain simulation software and engineering services to support product design in relation to critical performance parameters such as safety, fuel economy, noise and vibration, structural integrity and life time. SISW LMS is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, with a staff of about 350 and has R&D centres throughout Europe, the US and India. While its main markets are the automotive and aerospace ones, its solutions are adopted in all sectors where mission critical performance must be ensured. SISW LMS continuously innovates its solutions through substantial investments in R&D. This innovation process is performed in close collaboration with both major end users, reflecting the actual market needs and with leading universities and research centres, to contribute with breakthrough technologies. As part of this strategy, SISW LMS has a policy of hosting visiting students, researchers and experts, many of which pursue mixed industry-academic doctoral degrees.
