FORD OFFSHOOT VALISYS WINS McDONNELL FOR WORLD MARKETING OF FACTORY SUITE

By CBR Staff Writer

Valisys Corp of Santa Clara, California is celebrating a contract under which McDonnell Douglas Corp will market and distribute its manufacturing automation software internationally. Valisys software checks mechanical part designs and uses design data to automate inspection processes. It will be integrated in McDonnell Douglas’ Unigraphics II computer aided design and manufacturing product. Valisys, a recently-formed independant Ford Motor Company subsidiary partly owned by its employees, was set up after savings of about 50% in several manufacturing areas were achieved using the product. Joe Lindsey, a member of the Valisys product development team, has been made product manager for Valisys and project co-ordinator for the McDonnell Douglas venture. Engineering vice president is Christopher Garcia, founder of the Valisys project, and the marketing vice president is David St Charles, formerly of Computervision. John Furrer, vice president of corporate development for Ford is the spin out’s acting chairman and chief executive.
