Frenus attended Daimler EDM CAE Forum 2017, at the International Congresscenter (ICS) in Messe Stuttgart on the 19th and 20th of July. The EDM CAE Forum is THE central information and interaction platform for the Engineering Data Management (EDM) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) community of Daimler AG and its partners.
