are adopting Solid Edge as a means to consolidate CAD resources,
reduce costs and enhance design capability," said Ted
Peachee, chief technology officer for Emerson Motor Technologies.
"Implementing Solid Edge carries additional benefits
because it is either already in use or being adopted across
other Emerson divisions. For example, in a case where a sister
company is using our motors, the ability to transfer Solid
Edge design files back and forth provides significant advantage."
Among other Emerson divisions using Solid Edge are Liebert,
Buehler, Ridge Tool Company, White-Rodgers and Therm-O-Disc.
Emerson Motor Technologies plans to use Solid Edge at sites
in the United States, Mexico and China.

systems. The cross-divisional selection team's goal was to
leverage Emerson's global engineering resources to provide
such benefits as increased productivity, reduced time-to-market
and enhance processes in Emerson's engineering services organization.
