Emirates Computers today announced that they are planning to launch PTC’s Mathcad 14.0 - a world-class generic calculation tool that combines document creation and mathematical calculations, and Arbortext - a content publishing system that streamlines and automates the company’s information publishing process, at GITEX Technology Week 2008.
“Emirates Computers is happy to introduce Mathcad 14.0, Arbortext and ProjectLink at GITEX Technology Week, which is a perfect platform to launch these world-class software solutions to the regional market. With so much development taking place here, there is a huge potential for Mathcad, Arbortext and ProjectLink in this region,” says Mr. Dani Diab, Vice President and General Manager of Emirates Computers, Abu Dhabi.
“Top engineers across the globe use Mathcad to perform, document and share calculation and design work. The unique Mathcad visual format and scratchpad interface integrate standard mathematical notation, text and graphs in a single worksheet makes Mathcad ideal for knowledge capture, calculation reuse, and engineering collaboration,” Mr. Jean Eid, Product Manager – PTC, Emirates Computers adds.
Mathcad is engineering calculation software that drives innovation and offers significant personal and process productivity advantages for product development and engineering design projects. Unlike proprietary calculating tools and spreadsheets, Mathcad lets engineers design and document engineering calculations simultaneously with comprehensive applied math functionality and dynamic, unit-aware calculations. Unlike other math calculation management software, Mathcad is easy to learn and use, with no special programming skills required. Mathcad increases productivity, saving engineers time and reducing errors, improves verification and validation of critical calculations, and promotes calculation best practices and reuse of calculation content.
“Arbortext, on the other hand, is the industry’s first and only integral solution that helps companies collaboratively author, manage, publish and dynamically deliver accurate documentation. It is an XML based publishing system that enables companies to create and organize publications easier, faster with the capability for structured changes,” Mr. Eid explains.
Arbortext is a content publishing system that streamlines and automates the company’s information publishing process and eliminates costly inefficiencies. Leveraging XML authoring, technical illustration creation, content and process management, and dynamic enterprise publishing capabilities of Arbortext, the company can improve its publishing processes and help the organization gain significant competitive advantage and lasting differentiation.
Arbortext improves customer satisfaction by delivering high-quality personalized documentation that is accurate, consistent, and relevant. It reduces costs by dynamically publishing the company’s business information to all formats - print and electronic - from a single source of content, and eliminates redundant work by streamlining authoring, technical illustration design, translation, review, and publishing processes and increases workforce efficiency by supplying service and manufacturing organizations with real-time, customized instructions with embedded interactive graphics for all required procedures. Arbortext speeds the compliance process by enabling faster, more complete documentation, accurate document tracking, and automated document workflow and delivers products to market faster by developing documentation concurrently with product designs.
“Finally, ProjectLink is a web-based project and program management system that enables organizations to easily execute projects and inspires collaboration among members of the extended team. It facilitates innovation by providing all the tools necessary to bring globally dispersed teams together as if working in the same room,” Mr. Eid explains.
Windchill ProjectLink creates a virtual workspace that enables all potential team members to access up-to-the-minute data on any project. And with ProjectLink, launching new projects is easy. A user simply logs on, sets up the project from a customer-defined template, invites participants and the team is off and running – all with minimal or no IT involvement. By providing members with access to the right information at the right time, teams keep moving quickly – in the right direction. Team members are alerted when changes occur to schedules, documents, designs and other information in their projects. In addition the system has robust CAD visualization tools, discussion forums and real time web-meeting capabilities that let teams focus on projects, share thoughts, build on each other’s input and capture innovative ideas as they evolve. This ideal environment facilitates the capture of good ideas and best practices from internal team members, as well as from suppliers, partners and customers.
Emirates Computers will be demonstrating the features and benefits of Mathcad 14.0, and Arbortext and Projectlink at its Stand No. C4-1, in Hall 4 at Gitex Technology Week 2008. Appointments can be made for Abortext and Projectlink demonstrations during the evening sessions by contacting the stand personnel. In addition to launching these software solutions, Emirates Computers will also showcasing its ‘SMART Data Center’ technologies based on Green, eco-friendly and sustainable technologies at the mega technology exhibition.
