Strategic Business Initiatives 
PTC(R) Product Development System Delivers Powerful data
 management and collaboration capabilities drive process efficiencies 
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--January 29, 2007
PTC (NASDAQ: PMTC), the Product Development Company(R) today
announced that Federal-Mogul Corporation, a global supplier of
automotive components, systems and modules for original equipment
manufacturers and the aftermarket, has adopted Windchill PDMLink(R)
and Windchill ProjectLink(TM) for strategic product lifecycle
management (PLM). Windchill, the PTC content and process management
solution, enables collaborative product development while helping
companies control data and processes. As a long-time user of PTC's
Pro/ENGINEER(R), the selection of Windchill extends Federal-Mogul's
existing relationship with PTC and enables them to realize the value
from an integral product development system. 
Driven by increasing customer requirements, a globally distributed
supply chain, and a focus on improving the quality of project
launches, Federal-Mogul required a PLM solution that would enable it
to accelerate time-to-market without compromising quality and
innovation. Additionally, the company required a solution that would
allow it to centralize internal applications on a single system while
providing the flexibility to support the heterogeneous CAD
environments of its automotive OEM customers. 
With the selection of Windchill, Federal-Mogul decided to
standardize on the PTC Product Development System to address these
challenges and support its strategic business initiatives for product
quality, time-to-market, and innovation. "Federal-Mogul is growing on
a global basis and the need for strong internal and customer
collaboration grows with it. By adopting Windchill as a common
software platform capable of integrating with the range of product
design systems used by our customers, we will be able to harmonize our
internal processes and adopt best practice while retaining the
flexibility to meet all our customers' needs," said Huw Pegler,
Engineering IS Director, Federal-Mogul. "By strengthening our program
management processes using PTC's Windchill, we expect to achieve
significant performance improvements in our product development
process, resulting in faster time-to-market and increased competitive
advantage." 
"Optimizing product development processes in a globally
distributed environment is a common challenge for today's
manufacturing companies," said Martin Walters, director, product and
market strategy, PTC. "Windchill provides a superior solution for
managing complex data in this environment and enables effective
collaboration, allowing companies like Federal-Mogul to reap tangible
benefits from their technology investment."
