New CSC Solution Accelerates Global Collaborative Product Design and Development

Offering Reduces Design-to-launch Cycle Time and Fosters Greater Innovation

FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today introduced CATRack, a new product lifecycle management (PLM) business solution for engineering and manufacturing companies that design and build complex aerospace, automotive and other heavy equipment or high-technology products. CATRack is a pre-built, scalable system that provides high-speed access to product model data within an organization and among design partners.

The offering helps design teams meet the challenges of global collaboration by storing, sharing and synchronizing product model data across all design partners. Until now, this process required significant manual intervention and monitoring on behalf of each design partner. CATRack eliminates this necessity, freeing engineers to focus on core project work and reducing both overall design cycle time, as well as data recovery in the event of user or system errors.

CSC developed the solution in collaboration with IBM(R) and Dassault Systemes. CATRack is powered by IBM rack-mounted BladeCenter(R) high-performance servers and Dassault Systemes' CATIA and ENOVIA applications. CSC provides systems integration, engineering and remote support services to offer clients a complete end-to-end managed service.

"The stakes couldn't be higher when it comes to mastering the demands of bringing new products to market," said Eileen Sweeney, president of CSC's Global Manufacturing Services Sector. "Engineering and manufacturing companies rely on borderless, secure collaboration to accelerate innovation in new product design and development. CATRack can be up and running in a secure CATIA/ENOVIA environment quickly with real-time access to engineering models around the globe."

"Companies are facing relentless pressure to reduce product cost and increase quality while reducing product development cycle times," said Simon Ellis, practice director, Manufacturing Insights, an IDC company. "CATRack provides the design community with a broadly deployable tool that has the ability to shorten design-to-launch cycle time, foster innovation, sharpen competitive advantage, improve profitability and increase shareholder value."

The system can be deployed as a turnkey solution or configured and installed to specific PLM processes and data requirements. More information is available at
