China Aero-Instrument Deploys Windchill to Standardize Key Business Processes

BEIJING—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 17, 2007— PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), the Product Development Company(R), today announced that Chengdu Aero-Instrument Co., Ltd (CAIC), a leading China-based aviation equipment manufacturer, has adopted PTC Windchill as the central component of its collaborative product development system. The Windchill-based system will help CAIC unify disparate technology systems while improving decision making and driving business improvements for key processes such as project management and manufacturing process management. CAIC expects Windchill to play a significant role in helping the company achieve faster and more responsive design, testing, and manufacturing.

CAIC's long-term strategy, "E-CAIC," began by eliminating manual processes associated with its design, manufacturing, and management processes through targeted IT investments, process reengineering, and enhanced R&D capacity. The explosive growth of digital information and increased reliance on geographically dispersed team members has highlighted CAIC's process inefficiencies. After two years of comprehensive analysis, CAIC's product data management (PDM) group selected Windchill because of its integral database, consistent user experience, and interoperability with other applications.

With Windchill, CAIC now has a single data management platform based on a complete, unified product structure inclusive of all associated product development content. Employees are able to easily access necessary data while sharing content and knowledge in a secure, protected environment.

Additionally, all product development processes will be managed by Windchill PDMLink(R), effectively integrating all R&D processes related to product development. With Windchill, CAIC has gained standardized project definition, implementation and control activities, while shedding repetitive design steps and product development costs.

"We consider production innovation the blood of sustainable development, and product development processes the life of our company," said Zhu Jiansheng, president and general manager, CIAC. "Windchill has proven to be a successful solution in product digital definition, R&D automation, and Web-based collaboration."

"As a leading manufacturer of aviation products, CAIC has achieved remarkable results from the digitization of their product development processes. CAIC thoroughly understands and appreciates the value derived from consistent, standardized, and optimized processes," said Richard Prince, director, vertical market strategy for aerospace and defense, PTC. "PTC is committed to supporting the realization of the E-CAIC vision and the application of best class solutions for R&D, project management, and secure collaboration."
