New service tool screen creation and management without code changes!

Novi/Michigan, June 6th 2009 – MAHLE Test Systems, a division of MAHLE Powertrain, LLC, is a major supplier of diagnostic engineering services for manufacturing and dealership service. Today, MAHLE Test Systems announced industry-wide availability of a new screen configuration utility for their ServiceLogiq™ runtime software.

With this new utility, component-based ServiceLogiq™ runtime screens can be developed seamlessly without code changes, allowing easy standardization of service tool screens in a global authoring environment.

"Our ServiceLogiq™ runtime software uses our experiences in powertrain and diagnostic development over the last 27 years," explains Mike Dew, applications developer for MAHLE Test Systems. "By creating this utility, screen authoring time is greatly reduced for our customers. It also solves a typical development issue, of keeping the screen configuration independent of test authoring."

“This new capability was added into our test suite for our customers with ServiceLogiq™ licensing, with no additional licensing cost,” states Chuck Heine – Managing Director, MAHLE Powertrain, LLC. "Our customers will benefit greatly from the productivity improvements of this capability."


ServiceLogiq™ has the ability to run stand-alone or from a central web server. This allows OE’s flexible deployment options and eliminates the need to distribute software and database updates. Its fast execution rates (less than 10 second start-up and screen-to-screen less than 1 second) are an industry best. It easily supports scanners, scopes and other vehicle measurement devices. The software also integrates other OE diagnostics and data such as Technical Service Bulletins, wiring diagrams and reports.

An application of ServiceLogiq™ is currently being used by a German OE and a North American OE is running trials with excellent results.

MAHLE is a trusted supplier in the development of new testing solutions for various OEM applications ranging throughout the product life cycle.
