The history of the AMS from the foundation 1993 until today.

1993

With the foundation of the AMS GmbH, the development and sales of the data acquisition software BEAM is taken over from Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik, Darmstadt. BEAM is the first program with graphic window technology for acquisition and evaluation of measurement data worldwide and was launched 1988 as a Macintosh version on the market by HBM.

1994

The AMS receives the innovation prize of the Free State of Saxony.

The proved operating philosophy of BEAM becomes ported to Windows 95 and so available for Microsoft Windows user.

1998

Only 4 weeks after the launch of Windows NT4 both wind canals at BMW are equipped with BEAM as Windows NT compatible test bed software. The AMS launched the java based data evaluation software jBEAM, that fulfills the requirement for distributed working with measurement data. It is platform independent, high-performance and multilanguage operable for desktop and web solutions.

1999

BEAM proves itself on the test bench for the main engine valves of the Ariane 5 (esa).

2003

jBEAM becomes the first ASAM-CEA standardized system for the analysis of readings.

2006

One of the leading global automobile manufacturers acquires a global license for jBEAM as a standard evaluation tool. The AMS North America Inc. is founded to be present for the U.S. automotive industry in Detroit.

2007

jBEAM is used since then at the 3 largest German automobile manufacturers as a software in different areas of the data analysis.

2008

jBEAM is used as a standard software for the control and analysis of transmission test state at the leading global supplier of drive technology.

2009

Volkswagen licences jBEAM worldwide for applications in the area of R&D.

2010

With the establishment of the AMS Liaison Office in Shanghai, AMS is in the emerging Chinese market on-site.

2011

The development of the visualization software iBEAM as an app begins. So smart devices (iPhone, iPad, ...) can be integrated into a global web solution.

2012

With the stereoscopic visualization of 3D data AMS presents a new innovative technology.

2013

The AMS develops MaDaM - a complete web-based Measurement Data Management system on the most modern technology level.

2014

SAIC & IAV decide in favour of MaDaM.

2015

AMS develops a software for the execution of freely customizable, automated test sequences for serial and parallel testing in test benches.

2016

EvoBus and Mercedes, both Daimler AG, rely on MaDaM for distributed access to road test data.

2017

The AMS presents innovations jBEAM Cluster, MaDaM² and Big-Test Data to the market.
