DESIGN/ANALYSIS TOOLS TO THE ENGINEER'S DESKTOP Provides Direct Link Between INERTIA and CADDS 5 BEDFORD, Mass., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Computervision Corporation's (NYSE: CVN) CV-DORS(TM) business unit today announced that MCAE Inc., a leading supplier of mechanical CAE software, has signed a development and joint marketing agreement with Computervision. As part of the agreement, MCAE will integrate its mechanical analysis product suite (INERTIA) with Computervision's CADDS(R) family of mechanical design products via the CV-DORS Integrated Surface and Solid Modeler (ISSM)(TM) tool kit. A suite of software packages that provide seamless execution of engineering tasks, INERTIA simulates testing and prototyping for architectural, structural, civil, automotive, aerospace and mechanical engineers. Multiple modules make up the INERTIA product for the following engineering analysis tasks: FEA (InSolid), heat transfer (InThermal), Kinematics and mechanical dynamics (InMotion), structural dynamic analysis (InDynamic), structural design and code checks (InFrame), engineering properties (InProp) and nonlinear structural analysis (InPlastics). INERTIA interfaces with CADDS 5 directly through MCAE's integration product InCad. This interface is a binary integration achieved through use of CV-DORS Integrated Surface and Solids Modeling tool kit. According to John Bodman, MCAE president, "The integration of INERTIA with CADDS 5 brings effective and affordable design/analysis tools to the engineer's desktop." "Through the CV-DORS initiatives and Key Alliance Partner Program," said Gary Lerner, CV-DORS program manager, "Computervision reinforces its commitment to customers by expanding their application options and providing them with best-in-class solutions. Using CV-DORS component software, developers like MCAE Inc., get proven technology on which to build their value-added solutions." MCAE Inc. joins the growing list of companies that have adopted CV-DORS modeling technology. Recent Key Alliance Partners include TECNOMATIX, Brigham Young University, ICAD, Inc., Magma, Peugeot S.A., RASNA, Systems Engineering Associates Corporation, SIIE/Caroline Informatique, and Spring. These partners work closely with Computervision to incorporate Computervision's advanced CAD/CAM software technology into their existing applications. MCAE Inc. was launched in 1985 by a team of engineers and scientists from industry and Purdue University. As a result of their research and development, MCAE introduced the first multitasking, multiwindowing engineering program for desktop computers -- INERTIA. As a further result of their later efforts, MCAE introduced InCADD, the first CAD/CAE product written entirely in the C language in order to provide the engineer's desktop with a fast and efficient design/analysis tool.
