ILOG OFFERS OBJECT-ORIENTED VIEWS LIBRARY UNDER WINDOWS

By CBR Staff Writer

ILOG SA, the French object-oriented development tools developer, has announced that its ILOG Views graphic library is available under Windows 3.1 and that it has created a subsidiary in Singapore. The Windows version of ILOG Views, which the company says provides the same functionality as its Unix sister, is available initially for Borland International Inc C++ and Microsoft Coirp Visual C++ compilers. The Singapore subsidiary represents an upgrade of ILOG’s representative office, which has been operating in the country for the last three years. ILOG also says that two of its French users, the French Institute of Petroleum and Elf Sanofi Chimie, have jointly been awarded the best artificial intelligence application applied to industry by the fourth annual Congress of Procedures Engineering. Using ILOG tools SMECI and MASAI, IFP developed Prince, a knowledge-based system that assists experts in responding to oil company requests for proposals for the design of refineries. The system, which was introduced in 1990, enables experts to determine the functional conditions necessary to transform raw petroleum into products ready for sale. Currently running on Digital Equipment Corp VMS workstations, it is being converted for Windows-based micros. Biotech was developed for Elf Sanofi, using ILOG’s software engineering tools, by Jean-Philippe Steyer, a researcher at the Automation & Systems Analysis Laboratory of France’s National Scientific Research Centre, in collaboration with the Transfer Centre in Biotechnology and Microbiology of the National Institute of Applied Science. It is a real-time expert system that enables the technician to analyse and interpret the state of a fermentation process. The system is being used by Elf-Sanofi Chimie in its factory in Aramon to supervise fermentation of pharmaceutical products.
