ATLANTA, GA. - Monday, September 10, 2001 - Synaps, Inc. today unveiled Epogy, software and services for Computer-aided Exploration (CAEx), built on the framework of its popular Pointer? design automation application. CAEx is an automated engineering design and decision-making process that advances the "promise" of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) by coupling commercial and in-house CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) into a single application, and advancing capabilities to include real design optimization. CAEx and Epogy enable teams of engineers to work better and faster.
World-class companies like Daimler Chrysler, Bombardier Aerospace, Textron, Lockheed Martin, and Sandia Laboratories, in addition to research institutes and universities around the world, use the Epogy CAEx framework to improve the design process. In fact, many companies have recognized that CAEx provides a clear path to Six Sigma quality processes in the areas of research, design and development.
Alex Van der Velden, President of Synaps, Inc., said: "Today, Six Sigma may affect the tactical activities of engineering, but the approach is not inline with its objectives. CAEx brings the design engineering process inline with the objectives of Six Sigma, which are to deploy a process to deliver breakthrough improvement. CAEx with Epogy improves Sigma levels and provides two orders of magnitude gain in both speed and the quality of the design process. Epogy delivers a significant improvement in design speed and quality."
Epogy includes the Pointer framework, and these new enhancements:
