AFMG Newsletter - Issue 31, January 2016


Dear customers, colleagues, and friends,

Welcome to a new edition of the AFMG Newsletter. These quarterly issues inform you about software updates, trainings, and interesting downloads related to our products.

AFMG - Looking Back and Ahead

While winter has tightened its grip on Germany, the New Year has begun and time has come to look back and ahead. At AFMG we like to use this opportunity to discuss the topics that are not a concern in daily business.

For AFMG, 2015 has been another good year. We made much advancement with respect to our internal software development processes and methodologies towards the goal of significantly shorter release cycles and even higher product quality. With great effort we put together EASE Focus 3 - the first of our programs that was designed using our new development standards. We have also further expanded our reach in the international market with double-digit growth seen across our entire range of products.

Thinking of 2016, we are positive that these trends will continue. Expansions to our team, enhancements to our website, simplification of our sales procedures, and, of course, further improvements and new features for all AFMG software will not only be keeping us busy - they will keep us moving ahead!

Thank you for joining us on the way.
Your AFMG Team

EASE Focus 3 Approaching the Finish Line

AFMG Becomes Sponsor of the Newman Student Award Fund

The support of education and especially of research projects and of students in the field of acoustics and simulation has always been of high importance to AFMG and its sister companies. Already in 2003, the founders of AFMG Dr. Wolfgang Ahnert, Dr. Rainer Feistel, and his son Dr. Stefan Feistel decided to endorse outstanding students with grants to fund projects relevant to the field.
For this reason, the AFMG Foundation was established.

Inspired by Professor Robert C. Coffeen, a long-time friend and partner of our company, AFMG has decided to extend its engagement to support students and become a sponsor of the Newman Student Award Fund. The fund which operates in honor and memory of Robert Bradford Newman, professor and faculty member of the School of Architecture and Planning, MIT, and of the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University for thirty years, regularly awards students for their achievements in projects relevant to architectural acoustics.
