UGS Ships Teamcenter Express Version 2.1

FOR RELEASE Monday, March 5, 2007

PLANO, Texas – UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced Version 2.1 of Teamcenter® Express is shipping to customers worldwide. Teamcenter Express is the collaborative product data management (cPDM) component of the UGS Velocity Series™ portfolio. The latest release adds capabilities for manufacturing data management and multi-language support.

“UGS’ Teamcenter Express solution is a strong mid-market cPDm solution,” said Peter Bilello, Director of Consulting Services at CIMdata. “Building this cPDm solution on top of the Teamcenter Engineering platform has allowed UGS to get to market quickly and leverage one of the world’s most widely-used enterprise PLM platforms. The capabilities it delivers are extensive. Teamcenter Express’ preconfigured nature has allowed companies who have selected it to implement quickly with minimal effort and expense. This rapid implementation should result in the realization of PLM related benefits quickly.”

New enhancements target manufacturing

Today many SMBs use non-specific databases or PDM applications that do not manage manufacturing data. This results in the loss of data or even manufacturing from the wrong data. Teamcenter Express Version 2.1 provides both design and manufacturing data management in the same system. The system offers extensions for manufacturing process planning as well as tool, fixture and standard resource libraries, tailored for mid-size manufacturers.

Teamcenter Express Version 2.1 interfaces directly with NX® CAM Express, the full function numerical control (NC) programming application and CAM component of UGS’ Velocity Series. The system automatically captures the data created in NX CAM Express sessions and maintains this under full revision control under a manufacturing process definition. Companies can easily go back to a job, find the right data and ensure that the correct information is sent to the machine shop.

Multi-language support

Version 2.1 adds multi-language support for Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Japanese, Russian, German, French, Spanish and Italian to Version 2 that was released in English in October 2006. Teamcenter Express’ comprehensive localization has led to deployments in 26 countries since the software was first launched just over one year ago.

Teamcenter Express can be coupled with a wide variety of computer-aided design (CAD) applications including UGS’ Solid Edge® and NX as well as CATIA®, AutoCAD®, Autodesk Inventor® and SolidWorks®. For more information, visit.www.ugs.com/velocity and www.ugs.com/teamcenterexpress.
