It has been proven to consistently provide time and cost savings of the order of 90%, allowing companies to get `right first time' products to market in record time.
KTI's largely aerospace and automotive customers use its KBO Environment to design complex components and assemblies simply by specifying function and by using dynamic embedded rules such as materials and manufacturing constraints and best-practice to produce the best solution. Once a product design has been derived from the knowledge base, manufacturers frequently need to transfer the model into various other systems in their downstream processes including CAD systems. Until now, integration with proprietary CAD systems has been dependent on the various CAD vendors sharing code and product updates with KTI. This latest solution provides KTI's customers with the leading, industry standard route to product data exchange.
By integrating via Theorem Solutions' product line, KTI's customers will enjoy the closest CAD collaboration yet achieved. Theorem provides a robust family of data exchange tools for all major CAD vendors. For instance, CADverter is Theorem's range of Direct Database converters, STEP AP203 and AP214 based conversion Products.

About Theorem Solutions
Theorem Solutions is a UK based company incorporated in 1990, with offices in the USA. Today the company is recognized as one of the world leaders in the field of Product Data Exchange. Theorem was formed with the mission of developing application programs to solve the problem of Product Data Exchange using both Direct Database conversion - CADverter and International Standards based conversion methods - STEP, the goal being to significantly improve the ease and quality of Product Data Exchange for CAD/CAM users.
This technical requirement, and the need for corporations world-wide to cut costs by sub contracting design and manufacturing, combined with the need to develop more integrated information systems has contributed to the growth and development of Theorem and its products.
Today Theorem has a very broad suite of products, offering both direct converters and STEP based converters. In the field of STEP, Theorem actively participates in the forums of the International Standards Organizations and is a member of both PDES (Product Data Exchange using STEP [STandard for the Exchange of Product Model Data]) A standard format for exchanging data between advanced CAD and CAM programs. Inc. and ProSTEP.
Theorem Solutions is a totally independent company, but maintains good relationships with the CAD vendors including, Autodesk, IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company.
