ICEM Ltd., a leading developer of surface modeling, surface quality analysis and design visualization software, has announced that executives from some its major customers will be giving presentations on their own companies' use of ICEM software at the ICEM European Users Group Conference, 2005, taking place in Barcelona on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th September. Toshio Yamashita, managing director, Nissan Design Centre; Jeff King, digital design data manager, styling department, Bentley Motors; Wayne Morgan, senior manager, surfacing and cubing, Land Rover and Jaguar Cars; and Thierry Chevalier, head of methods, aerodynamics design and data department, Airbus Industrie have all accepted
invitations to describe to conference attendees the ways that ICEM software has helped their respective companies in the design development of their latest products. These include the new Nissan Note (which is currently available only in Japan), the new Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the new Land Rover Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport, and the world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380.



SAP recently certified the integration packages for CATIA V4/V5 and mySAP PLM which PROSTEP developed using SAP's CAD desktop architecture. This now makes the OpenPDM SC4 and SC5 interfaces official SAP partner products. The CATIA integration packages for mySAP PLM are part of PROSTEP's OpenPDM product suite, which provides support for both online integration scenarios between PLM/PDM/TDM/CAD systems and the cross-enterprise exchange of product structure data. This means the PROSTEP is able to provide a wide variety of different application scenarios using the same basic technology. The interfaces are user friendly since PROSTEP has incorporated them in SAP's CAD desktop architecture, which
provides all the major functions needed to manage the engineering data and operate the interfaces using a uniform user interface. This means that users require only a minimum of training in order to learn how to use the PDM system across different CAD systems typically found in the automotive industry.



TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. announced that its Kelsey-Hayes Co. subsidiary plans to build a vehicle development test track slated to begin operation as early as fall, 2006 in Locke Township, Michigan. Located on 262 acres of land near the Michigan state capitol of Lansing, the new center's primary purpose will be the development of active safety systems for the company's braking, steering, and suspension products. The facility will be situated less than 10 miles from a TRW manufacturing facility in Fowlerville, Michigan.
