Unigraphics And Jaguar Racing Sign Agreement

December 15, 2000

NEWS BRIEFS

St. Louis, MO. — Unigraphics Solutions Inc. announces it has signed a multi-million dollar, three-year software and services contract to supply Jaguar Racing with an integrated system to enhance collaborative product development. The implementation includes Unigraphics – UGS’ high-end, fully integrated CAD/CAM/CAE software suite, iMAN – its Internet-centric product content management application and ProductVision – the company’s enterprise visualization solution. The contract will enable UK-based Jaguar Racing to work collaboratively within its team, as well as with outside suppliers on the development and manufacturing of cars in a totally digital environment.

“This agreement marks an important step forward in the Ford Motor Company’s ambitions in Formula 1 Grand Prix motor racing,” says Neil Ressler, chairman of Jaguar Racing. “Both Jaguar Racing and Ford’s high-performance engines manufacturer, Cosworth Racing, which supplies the power units for Jaguar’s Racing Formula 1 cars, have relied upon Unigraphics Solutions’ product development software over recent years and have been impressed with its advanced capabilities. This new agreement will ensure continuity over the next three Grand Prix seasons as Jaguar Racing, using Ford engines developed by Cosworth, bids for success in Formula 1 Grand Prix racing.”

Under the terms of the contract, Unigraphics Solutions will provide Jaguar Racing with more than 50 licenses of Unigraphics to enable the Formula 1 team to develop and manufacture its cars for future Grand Prix seasons in a totally digital environment. The implementation will also allow design engineers to work concurrently on different aspects of the car, while iMAN manages the effect of individual design changes. In addition, ProductVision will extend the design collaboration environment to include the entire Jaguar Racing community, even those unfamiliar with Unigraphics. By using their desktop PCs and the standard web browser within ProductVision, people in all departments such as purchasing or marketing, are able to use the Internet to access, view and mark-up models and drawings, as well as product information.

“With a lead time of no more than four to five months between the end of one Grand Prix season and the start of the next, it is essential that we make the most of every minute we have in developing next season’s car,” says Steve Nevey, Jaguar Racing’s computer-aided engineering manager. “The Unigraphics Solutions system helps us enormously in this respect by making communication between the different engineering groups involved in the development and manufacturing of a Formula 1 car quick and easy through the latest Web-based technologies. Further, because the system integrates the design, engineering and manufacturing processes and is underpinned by the iMAN product content management system, everyone has access to and can be sure they are always working with the latest design information.”

“We are proud to be associated with Jaguar Racing,” says Jim Duncan, vice president of Europe, Unigraphics Solutions. “The design and manufacturing of a winning Formula 1 Grand Prix racing car is one of the most demanding and rewarding engineering tasks that a group of people can undertake. We look forward to being part of Jaguar Racing’s endeavors.”

Based in Milton Keynes in the UK, Jaguar Racing was formed in 1999 when the Ford Motor Company acquired Stewart Grand Prix from former three-times world champion Jackie Stewart, who had founded the team in 1996 in order to lay the foundations for a successful Formula 1 team for Ford. Johnny Herbert brought the Stewart-Ford team its maiden victory in the Grand Prix of Europe at Nurburgring in 1999. In a year of firsts, Rubens Barrichello also recorded Stewart-Ford’s first pole position, at the French Grand Prix in Magny Cours. Besides Nurburgring and Magny Cours, he also finished third at San Marino and led the Grands Prix of Brazil and France.

Unigraphics (UG) is a software application addressing the entire product development process from conceptual design to product modeling, analysis and manufacturing. One of the industry’s most complete products, UG features a broad set of functionality that includes state-of-the-art tools for computer aided industrial design (CAID), tightly integrated with robust CAD/CAM/CAE solutions. Unigraphics incorporates Knowledge Driven Automation technology – the combination of design optimization techniques with product and process knowledge-based engineering – to dramatically improve productivity in industries like automotive, aerospace, machinery, consumer products, medical instruments and tooling.

iMAN is a Internet-centric software product used by manufacturing enterprises to manage product content for collaborative commerce. It provides control of all product and process information shared by a variety of cross-functional teams including company personnel, suppliers, partners and customers. For more information, please visit iMAN on the World Wide Web at http://www.iman.com .

ProductVision is an advanced visualization and collaboration tool that provides an intuitive interface to the graphical product definition for an entire extended manufacturing enterprise. ProductVision is built on the UGS EAI Unit’s visualization toolkit technology, and provides a single, CAD-independent environment to access, interrogate and evaluate the digital model.

Unigraphics Solutions Inc. is focused on improving the entire product life cycle for design and manufacturing companies through the delivery of software and consulting service solutions that address process and productivity enhancements. Its open solutions for product design, manufacturing, visualization, data management and e-Business are designed to promote interoperability and collaborative product commerce (CPC) through incorporation of today’s most advanced technology, emerging industry standards and intelligent use of the Internet.
