Boeing Deploys SDRC's Accelis™

- Open, e-Business Integration solution to help ease transition from legacy systems to new system -

CINCINNATI-October 23, 2000-SDRC (Nasdaq: SDRC), a global supplier of e-business collaboration solutions for the product lifecycle, today announced that it has received a significant order from The Boeing Company for Accelis™ software and services. Following a previously announced, successful technology pilot, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group will use Accelis, SDRC's e-Business Integration solution, to allow users working in the Define and Control Airplane Configuration/Manufacturing Resource Management (DCAC/MRM) system to automatically and transparently update legacy databases along with the DCAC/MRM database itself. The implementation of Accelis provides the users with a smooth transition from Boeing legacy systems to the DCAC/MRM system. Boeing is using Accelis to ease engineering data management by automatically updating the product bill of material across multiple databases.

"Accelis enables Boeing users to work with one interface - the web - and thereby greatly simplify data management," said Ron Trout, director, DCAC Competence Center, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Based on the results of the pilot, we expect use of Accelis to reduce the time required to perform tedious data management tasks and thereby free engineers to spend more time on design creation."

"The name Boeing is synonymous with innovative excellence, market leadership and advanced technology adoption," said Bill Weyand, chairman and CEO, SDRC. "Use of Accelis will continue the Boeing tradition of adopting and exploiting advanced technology to create business value for its customers and shareholders."
