Ilog Targets Manufacturing ERP With Component Tool.
Ilog SA, the Paris, France software component supplier, has
released its Configurator, a tool which enables product managers rather
than developers to build component-based applications. The Ilog
Configurator, used with Ilog's Solver, its generic optimization tool, is specifically designed, Ilog claims, for components with
constraints associated with components and data structures for
cataloging built-in. Configurator also has 'shorter code'
which can be entered in any order, making it useable, the company says,
by product managers as well as programmers. It runs on the major Unix
versions and Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and NT.
