Lumberg Group Optimizes Concurrent Engineering with PTC CoCreate

NEEDHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 22, 2008— PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced that German-based Lumberg Group, has optimized its product development process with CoCreate, PTCs explicit modeling and data management software that provides companies with a lightweight and flexible approach to designing products. Lumberg uses CoCreate Modeling and CoCreate Model Manager for parallel development of its customized products and manufacturing technology. Lumberg is supported by PTC partner ASCAD for all CAD/PDM engineering services.

Lumberg Group operates numerous development and manufacturing locations in Europe, America and Asia, as well as a worldwide sales network for its individual and flexible customer solutions. Connector systems and components comprise the core of its wide array of products for the automotive, photovoltaic, telecommunication and appliance industries.

To meet the extremely short development cycles typical in these industries today, Lumberg required a development solution that supported parallel design of its products and manufacturing technology. As soon as the first new product concept is realized in 3D, development of the production technology begins. Using CoCreate provides the design team with flexibility to respond to unforeseen changes up until the last minute of the design process.

The flexible explicit modeling approach in PTC CoCreate Modeling and the product data management capabilities of CoCreate Model Manager allow us to exploit the benefits of concurrent engineering, said Stefan Joergens, head of R&D at Lumberg. The PTC CoCreate product family is critical to our success because we have to meet very short development cycles for our customized projects. With our modification-intense and time-critical unique projects, this software offers design flexibility that cant be beat.

We are pleased that the Lumberg Group uses the advantages of the explicit modeling approach and data management in PTC CoCreate to optimize its time-critical processes for concurrent engineering, said Martin Nuemueller, director, product management, PTC. The Lumberg Group's success further supports the importance of explicit modeling for customized, fast-paced product development.
