Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from UGS

    CYPRESS, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- UGS
 (NYSE:   UGS) today announces a range of special promotions at the Solid Edge
 Asia Pacific Voyager Expo being held this week in Phuket, Thailand.  The
 event, an integral part of the Solid Edge Asia Pacific Reseller Conference,
 will showcase the latest total solutions for mechanical design and manufacture
 which Solid Edge resellers are able to deliver to customers throughout the
 Asia Pacific region.
     The Solid Edge Voyager program is a partnership of third-party solutions
 integrated with Solid Edge to provide high-performance solutions that assist
 in the design, simulation, data management and manufacture of mechanical parts
 and assemblies.  The showcase solutions on display at the Asia Pacific Voyager
 expo this week have a strong focus for key industry segments of Asia Pacific
 customers such as machinery, electro-mechanical packaging and tooling supply.
     Premier Voyager partners offering the highest level of integration with
 Solid Edge are demonstrating associative solutions for users, such that
 engineers have total freedom to make changes to the design model and have
 these changes update and be reflected in the Voyager application.  For example
 a customer carrying out stress analysis can update their design model and
 immediately check out how these changes affect their analysis results for the
 stress levels in a component.
     "Engineers working in design are looking for a total solution that can
 demonstrate proven productivity beyond core design tasks," said Tony Jolly,
 Solid Edge Product Manager for Asia Pacific.  "The most exciting part of the
 expo this week, is that these solutions are going to be jointly marketed
 across the region for end users in very attractive bundles.  For example a
 customer involved in the design of complex machinery can deploy a total
 solution comprising of Solid Edge for mechanical design tightly integrated
 with an advanced dynamics package for the correct design of all moving parts."
     Hewlett-Packard (HP), major sponsor of the Solid Edge Voyager Expo has
 helped provide the latest HP Kayak XU700 workstations for this event on which
 all Solid Edge and Voyager solutions are being run.  In addition to being
 event sponsor, HP is actively joining in the solution driven marketing
 activities to offer unprecedented value promotions on HP machines with Solid
 Edge in selected Asia Pacific countries.
     Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is a strong focus of the Voyager Expo
 being held this week, with Voyager partners Mechanical Dynamics Inc (MDI),
 SRAC, Moldflow and Ansys being among the CAE vendors present.  In the area of
 Product Data Management, vendors Smart Solutions and PROCAD are demonstrating
 integrated data management software that help users manage and control Solid
 Edge design data in the design and manufacturing environment, ensuring the
 right revision data is available in the right place at the right time.  Other
 vendors present include EMT Software for NURBS modeling and standard parts and
 CAM vendors such as Gibbs & Associates and Pathtrace Engineering.
