John Deere Brazil Selects MatrixOne as Its PLM Supplier for Manufacturing Process Management

Product Collaboration Solutions Generate Lower Operating Costs by Increasing Efficiency Between Both Parties

WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 3, 2003-- MatrixOne, Inc. (NASDAQ: MONE), a leading provider of collaborative product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions for the value chain(TM), today announced the selection of its suite of products by one of the largest companies within the Brazilian agricultural market: John Deere Brazil S.A. The implementation of the MatrixOne solutions will increase efficiency and enable precise management of information in the different manufacturing groups.

According to the Project Manager at John Deere Brazil, Mr Claudir Robe: "These solutions will allow the development of important tasks such as the integration between the different CAD systems we use and the ERP solution used by our Company, managing at the same time 3D and 2D CAD objects and informations to and from our ERP system, enabling them in a Web based environment and in real time. This concept will make possible the viewing of information along the various manufaturing processes, the processes related to a certain item, the life cycle and status of each process and the costs involved in any project. In the end, we will certainly reduce operational costs and have a perfect management of the complicated manufacturing projects."

MatrixOne solutions accelerate the development process and the way companies deliver products in the market through a collaboration environment that manages important information to product engineers, sales staff, managers, suppliers and even customers.

According to Robe: "We chose MatrixOne's PLM solutions because they enable us to share information generated by our engineers, in real time and in a Web environment, which is familiar to anyone involved. The architecture of these products will also enable us to integrate the engineering environments with our ERP system, which is a very important task to speed up the delivery time of our products. Another important point in this choice is the presence of a MatrixOne value added reseller (VAR) in Brazil, which has been involved in the negotiation, technical support and implementation of these solutions, applying costs according to meet local needs."

For many years, John Deere Brazil has enjoyed a deep relationship with HIGH-END (, which has become a VAR of MatrixOne in Brazil.

"Because MatrixOne solutions support different platform and standard interfaces, John Deere Brazil can organize and manage a large amount of information in a very safe and easy way, which was done through several systems in the past. By doing this, we will enable access for a large number of users to a variety of important data via the Internet. We believe this will increase our efficiency, reduce our operational costs and have a perfect control of all processes, optimizing the way we bring products into the market," adds Robe.
