The CAD Society Announces Recipients of 2001 Industry Awards

Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from The CAD Society

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The
 CAD Society, a not-for-profit industry association, today announced the
 winners of the 2001 CAD Society Industry Awards.  The awards will be presented
 at a ceremony on April 28 at COFES2001: The Congress on the Future of
 Engineering Software, being held in Scottsdale, Arizona.
     The CAD Society Industry Awards recognize the contributions of individuals
 within the Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and engineering software industry.  CAD
 and related engineering software applications are used in the design of
 buildings, automobiles, consumer goods, and just about every manufactured
 product produced today.
     "CAD touches every aspect of modern life.  It's rare to find a
 manufactured product that isn't designed using CAD," remarked Evan Yares,
 President of the CAD Society. "These award winners have each contributed
 greatly to the acceptance and use of CAD and engineering software tools.  In
 doing so, they have made a positive difference in the lives of the engineers,
 architects and designers that use these tools."
     The recipient of the 2001 CAD Society Leadership Award is Bernard Charles,
 of Dassault Systemes.   Under his leadership, Dassault Systemes has grown to
 become a powerhouse, offering a wide range of software tools, used not only by
 industrial giants such as Boeing and DaimlerChrysler, but also by tens of
 thousands of small manufacturers.  Over the last several years, Dassault has
 acquired a number of promising young companies. Charles has managed to
 maintain the positive qualities of these organizations, while integrating them
 into a larger framework, encouraging both leadership and vision among those in
 his management corps.
     The recipient of the 2001 CAD Society Community Award is Amy Rowell,
 managing editor of MCADCafe.  Rowell has been an outspoken voice for the user
 during her 15-year career as an editor in the CAD industry.  She was
 instrumental in the successful launch of Cadence magazine, and over the years
 has written incisive and thoughtful articles for many leading publications in
 the engineering software industry.  As an engineer herself, she has constantly
 focused on not just the interesting, but the useful -- and in the process has
 helped many engineers, architects and designers to discover better tools and
 methods to get their work done.
     The recipient of the 2001 CAD Society Lifetime Award is Dr. Jason Lemon,
 co-founder of SDRC and International Technegroup Incorporated (ITI).  In his
 second career as a professor at University of Cincinnati (his first started in
 1953 as a mechanical engineer in product development), Dr. Lemon was an early
 pioneer in computer-aided engineering.  In 1967 he and several colleagues
 founded SDRC and set on the path to change the world of mechanical
 engineering.  In 1983, he founded ITI, now recognized as a leader in
 developing tools for concurrent product and manufacturing process development.
 Over his long career, Dr. Lemon's work has had a positive effect on millions
 of engineers around the world, with a ripple effect touching literally
 billions of people.
