CoCreate and TechnoStar Announce Integration

FORT COLLINS, Colo. and SINDELFINGEN, Germany, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CoCreate Software, Inc., a leading provider of 3rd generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, and TechnoStar Co., Ltd., today announced the availability of an integration between the two development environments to streamline exchanges between design and simulation within the product lifecycle management (PLM) process.

The direct connection between CoCreate's 3D CAD software, CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, and TechnoStar's simulation environment, TSV-Solutions, allows companies to quickly optimize product designs through rapid design and simulation cycles.

Digital simulation software is growing on the desktop as more engineers analyze products for real-world conditions while they design. This trend toward everyday analysis -- where digital simulation occurs as part of the daily design process -- benefits companies by providing better product quality, reduced physical prototyping time and costs, and faster realization of optimal designs.

For companies in time pressured industries, moving from stage gate processes to lean and concurrent efforts helps to shorten development timelines. The integration between CoCreate OneSpace Modeling and TSV- Solutions allows the easy exchange of information so design and simulation run in parallel.

"It is my pleasure to announce that CoCreate's 3D CAD application, CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, can now be accessed from TSV-Solutions. CoCreate is known for their strength in the electronics and high technology industries, and this partnership offers strong support for our business," said Masaru Tateishi, President of TechnoStar Co., Ltd.

"CoCreate's 3rd generation approach to PLM advocates open and connected systems throughout the enterprise. That extends to integrations with other engineering applications on the desktop as we and our partners look to streamline the overall process of product development and lifecycle management," said William M. Gascoigne, CoCreate CEO.

The integration, developed by TechnoStar in support with CoCreate, is part of the TSV-Solutions product suite. TechnoStar will offer the integration starting with version 1.3 of TSV-Solutions and the 2006 release of CoCreate OneSpace Modeling. The integration is available for purchase from TechnoStar.
