SDRC Receives Order for 150 I-DEAS® Enterprise™ Seats from Siemens Medical Solutions
Siemens becomes an early adopter of I-DEAS Enterprise; SDRC pushes market to a unified data and collaboration environment
CINCINNATI, OH-April 18, 2001-SDRC (Nasdaq: SDRC) today announced a 150 seat order from Siemens Medical Solutions, Erlangen, Germany, for I-DEAS® Enterprise™, an integration of SDRC's award-winning I-DEAS® mechanical design automation (MDA) products and its market leading Metaphase® product knowledge management (PKM) technology. The first phase of the I-DEAS Enterprise implementation will take place at Siemen's five German development sites (Erlangen, Forchheim, Kemnath, Rudolstadt and Dresden), also integrating a number of home-offices, becoming the Engineering Data Management System for these collective sites.
Siemens Medical Solutions has been an I-DEAS customer for more than five years, with a growing demand for a geographically dispersed development that collaborates throughout global locations with high performance, high reliability, data integrity and ease-of-use. I-DEAS Enterprise will provide Siemens with an opportunity to use their existing knowledge during the entire product life cycle process in a collaborative environment, with expected advantages in data sharing along their supply chain, improved support of their DMU-approach, and enhanced functionality in the areas of team and role management.
"We are pleased that Siemens Medical is one of the early adopters of this next-generation technology," said Bill Weyand, chairman and CEO, SDRC. "The demand for I-DEAS Enterprise has been the 'buzz' by customers all over the world, and we are starting to see companies embracing it as a key collaborative product that will enable them to revolutionize their product development processes. As the early success of I-DEAS Enterprise grows, SDRC views this as a direct link to the transition of the market to a unified data and collaboration environment."
