Apollo Computer Inc has a $6m agreement with Manufacturing & Consulting Services Inc, a supplier of computer-aided design and drafting/computer-aided manufacturing products, and also Manufacturing & Consulting also added two new mechanical computer-aided engineering and design packages. The packages are Cognition Inc’s Cost and Manufacturability Guide, and Parametric Technology Corp’s ProEngineer. Under terms of its one-year systems integrator agreement with Apollo, MCS will sell Apollo workstations as turnkey systems based on its Anvil CADD/CAM system. These integrated systems will be supported by both MCS and Apollo. Anvil-5000, when combined with Apollo’s workstation graphics and networking, offers mechanical engineers a system optimised for threedimensional wireframe, surface and solids modelling, finite element modelling, drafting, and automated manufacturing. The systems, which run on Apollo’s full line of workstations, are available now in the US in a variety of configurations.
