We are a young Munich-based software and consulting company which develops solutions for virtual product engineering on the basis of the Dassault Systèmes CAA Development Platform and markets these worldwide. Our aim is to integrate our customers’ engineering and simulation systems and processes more closely and in this way further enhance their competitiveness.

The original aim leading to the founding of FCMS was to increase the flexibility of concept development in the vehicle manufacturing field. As an authorized CAA software partner, we now supply solutions for the functional validation and optimization of products and components in all phases of the product engineering process. They are used in every sector of the transport industry – passenger cars, buses and commercial vehicles, rail vehicles, motorcycles and airplanes. Our young, dynamic team of highly-qualified engineers and IT specialists works together closely with our customers to develop practice-oriented solutions for fast CATIA modeling, CAE-compatible parameterization, multidisciplinary optimization and feedback of the optimized CAE geometry into the engineering process. We support our customers with services for the CAE-compatible preparation of their CAD models. We link the worlds of engineering and simulation.

FCMS is a company with more than ten years of experience in integrating the CAD and CAE worlds. The demand for Fast Concept Modelling emerged in the mid-1990s at BMW and other OEMs and led to the founding of a consulting and software house that was taken over by the CONTACT Group in 2011. FCMS has existed in its current legal form since 2014. The company is managed by Dr. Werner Pohl and Maximilian Zachries.

Achieving success together

FCMS markets its products and services both directly and via a network of national and international sales partners. In addition, the company, which is part of the CONTACT Group, is assisted by its parent company’s sales and support organization.

Our sales partners are not only perfectly familiar with their own regional markets but also contribute their individual industry know-how to this cooperation. To ensure that our customers worldwide benefit from the best possible support, we are extending our global sales and support organization and adding new partners to it. Anyone interested is invited to contact our partner management team by e-mail.

FCMS has technology partnerships with Dassault Systèmes and numerous manufacturers of simulation software. The aim of these partnerships is to optimize the way our products are integrated in our customer’s existing system landscapes and consequently to improve the efficiency of their CAD/CAE process chains.

Technology partners

We also cooperate closely with industry and renowned research organizations in the development of forward-looking technologies.

  • Our tool suite was used to optimize the support structure of a MAN coach within the framework of a consortium comprising MAN Truck & Bus, Tecosim GmbH, Dynardo GmbH and the Munich University of Applied Sciences.
  • Together with Siemens Austria, the Virtual Vehicle Research Center (ViF) and the Institute of Electronics at Graz Technical University, we optimized a bogie for rail vehicles to provide maximum service life.
