(PRESCIENT-TECHNOLOGIES) Prescient's New DesignQA Software Assures
  Better Product Quality

  BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 26, 1997--Prescient Technologies
  today announced a major design quality assurance breakthrough with
  the release of its DesignQA software for the CATIA CAD/CAM
  platform. Incomplete or incorrect CAD model data are the cause of
  expensive delays and redesigns in the product development process.
  Problems often arise from inconsistent CAD practices. With
  increasingly complex models, even the most experienced design
  engineers cannot foresee all the problems that may arise when the
  model has gone on to other stages in the development process.
  DesignQA for CATIA works from within CATIA, the leading three-
  dimensional solid modeling CAD system from Dassault Systems.

       DesignQA facilitates the implementation of a wide spectrum of
  CATIA design standards, ranging from unnecessary geometry to
  incorrect naming conventions. Pre-configured with over 75 design
  quality assurance categories to analyze the overall integrity of
  the model data, DesignQA streamlines the entire product development
  process by helping all CAD users create better models early in the
  design process. Working both as a quality assurance advisor and a
  training tool, DesignQA recommends corrective actions or
  automatically corrects problems. The CATIA user can create better
  models in less time with early insight and model correction
  capabilities provided by DesignQA.

  About the Product:

       DesignQA is flexible and designed to be easily configured for
  company-specific standards and project guidelines. Configurable
  features such as: model quality assurance analysis criteria, and
  the ability to activate/deactivate and group quality assurance
  categories, provide the flexibility required to easily use DesignQA
  at all stages of design engineering for any design project.

      DesignQA addresses key manufacturing concerns and offers
  practical advice for identified problems in CAD model areas such

         - Draw Mode Quality
         - Model Geometry
         - Layers and Filters
         - Model Graphics Standards
         - Syntax Testing
         - Element Listing
