    CHICAGO, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- InStep Software LLC, a leading provider
 of real-time software systems and solutions, announced today that InStep
 has teamed with the Exelon Corporation to win the 2008 nuclear reliability
 Top Industry Practice ("TIP") award for excellence. The award is based on
 the results achieved by Exelon from their use of InStep's PRiSM software
 for Centralized Performance Monitoring.
     InStep's PRiSM technology monitors Exelon's entire fleet of nuclear
 assets to provide advanced early warning notification of potential
 equipment problems or failure. With 500 deployed plant equipment computer
 models Exelon achieved over $500,000 in avoided equipment and production
 losses in the first two months of operation. PRiSM uses advanced cluster
 based reasoning to identify process variations that would be virtually
 impossible to detect otherwise. The PRiSM software seamlessly integrates
 with Exelon's existing historian infrastructure for reliable and secure
 access to the plant information.
     InStep software President John Kalanik says, "We are most pleased to be
 part of this award winning team. This is a great example of how industry
 vendors can truly partner with their customers to achieve winning results."
