Inauen-Schaetti Standardizes on PTC CoCreate

NEEDHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 14, 2008— PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced that Inauen-Schaetti, the international leader in development and construction of cable lift systems, has standardized on CoCreate, PTCs explicit modeling and data management software that provides companies with a lightweight and flexible approach to designing products. Inauen-Schaetti uses CoCreate Modeling and CoCreate Model Manager for ultimate design flexibility and efficient project management of all its products. ACADIS partner, COP Informatik AG, implemented the solutions and provides complete support to the company.

Inauen-Schaetti, based in Schwanden, Switzerland, designs cable systems, masts and gondola stations for ski lifts, monorail lift systems, inclined elevators for mountainous terrain, transport systems for tunnel drilling, and controlled avalanche detonation machinery for customers on all of the continents. Designing these extremely unique systems is a highly iterative and open process as each system must be tailored to fit the mountain type, size, shape, terrain and weather conditions.

Inauen-Schaetti selected and deployed CoCreate Modeling to take advantage of its explicit modeling approach for product design. CoCreate Modeling offers the broadest possible flexibility to easily make radical changes to models at any time throughout the design process. Inauen-Schaetti also uses CoCreate Model Manager in conjunction with CoCreate Modeling for fail-proof project management, collaboration and control of design data across its sites worldwide. The company says that in addition to the immeasurable success CoCreate Modeling has brought, CoCreate Model Manager has reduced project length by 15-20 percent.

We are regularly faced with tough challenges. Every project is unique, every system is a prototype, said Urs Thali, head of CAD design at Inauen-Schaetti. We could not work without the flexibility that explicit modeling gives us to continually try new ideas, alternative solutions, and to make the last minute changes that our type of projects require. Even though we are a fairly small company, PTC CoCreate makes us enormously competitive and successful globally. We couldnt imagine working without the CoCreate product family.

The nature of Inauen-Schaettis business and their design strategy literally demands PTC CoCreate, said Martin Neumueller, CoCreate product management director. It is our pleasure to provide the solutions that make Inauen-Schaetti a global success.
