Intercim and Dassault Systemes Sign Memorandum of Understanding

    Combined Vision for MES and PLM Based on Dassault Systemes' Newly
    Introduced V6 Platform and Intercim's Pertinence Suite Will be Presented
    at DEVCON 2008 in Paris, France June 17-18

    ST. PAUL, MN, June 16 /CNW/ - Intercim LLC, a global leader in
manufacturing and production operations management software solutions for
advanced and highly regulated industries and Dassault Systemes (DS) (Nasdaq:  
DASTY; Euronext Paris: No.13065, DSY.PA), world leader in 3D and Product
Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, have signed a Memorandum of
Understanding focused on combined solutions for the aerospace and defense
industry. The objective of this MOU is to provide the aerospace and defense
industry with Intercim's manufacturing operations management solution
integrated with Dassault Systemes' V6 platform.
    While integration already exists between Dassault Systemes' V5 PLM
platform and Intercim manufacturing execution systems (MES) solutions,
Intercim and DS have decided to take a significant step forward to leverage
the openness, online content and creation capabilities of Dassault Systemes'
recently announced V6 platform. Intercim will provide customers with a
complete manufacturing operations management system integrated with V6's
single PLM platform for intellectual property management. This unique
partnership will create a Web-based solution that offers the following value
to customers:

    - Visibility and traceability to all manufacturing stakeholders of shop
    floor execution, with a real-time 3D access to the "as-built" product

    - Increased reactivity to plant-floor issues with real-time visibility
    across the extended enterprise of all production assets directly within
    the 3D production model,and with immediate corrective action validation
    in the virtual model prior to implementation.

    - Increase knowledge sharing between the shop-floor and product and
    manufacturing engineering with a common view and understanding of the
    virtual product and production system.

    "With the introduction of V6 in the market, Dassault Systemes provides to
its manufacturing community customers an online collaborative solution to
support PLM 2.0. PLM 2.0 is to PLM what Web 2.0 is to the Web. Everyone can
connect to a single intellectual property PLM management solution to enrich
and share the manufacturing assets of the enterprise," explained Pascal
Lecland, vice president R&D, DELMIA, Dassault Systemes. "Intercim's
partnership is key for Dassault Systemes and a major step forward for the
aerospace and defense industry. Intercim solutions bring customer value
through their ability to collect operational best practices and communicate
shop floor non-conformances with the engineering and design teams. We are
proud to expand our current partnership with a leading MES company, into
DELMIA's first V6 partnership, in order to provide our customers with a unique
PLM-MES solution."
    Intercim president and CEO, John Todd says: "Intercim chose to tighten
and to strongly commit to this partnership because Dassault Systemes is the
undisputed leader both in terms of vision and products for PLM 2.0. We are
looking forward to many, many common successes and are well underway to
achieving this vision of manufacturing operations management and PLM with
several of our joint customers."
