Wright Williams & Kelly
Offers Solutions to
Tyecin Systems' Clients
February 8, 1999 (Business Wire) Wright Williams & Kelly (WWK) announced today it is immediately offering significant discounts and incentives on its Factory Explorer® simulation software products and services to existing ManSim and TestSim customers. This action was taken in response to the recent layoffs and facility closures announced by Manugistics (NASDAQ: MANU), the parent of ManSim's developer, Tyecin Systems.
"We believe the closures and layoffs will have a negative impact on past and current ManSim and TestSim users," states David W. Jimenez, WWK's Vice President & General Manager. "Our current offer allows these users to switch to our Factory Explorer® product at minimal cost while continuing to do business with a company headquartered near Silicon Valley."
Factory Explorer® is an integrated factory analysis tool designed to help make smart business decisions. It is capable of directly reading ManSim user data files. The Factory Explorer® capacity analysis engine quickly predicts system capacity and bottleneck resources; the cost analysis engine calculates product cost and factory gross margin; and the fast discrete event simulation engine estimates dynamic measures such as cycle time, work-in-process, and waiting times.
