CONSILIUM CREATES NEW ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

 CONSILIUM CREATES NEW ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
 New Business Units to Provide Market Focus
 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Consilium Inc. (NASDAQ: CSIM), the leading supplier of manufacturing execution systems software and services, announced today a company-wide reorganization. The new organizational structure spans all functional departments and was effective April 6.
 The new structure positions the company to take advantage of new business opportunities identified in both the process and discrete manufacturing markets. Expanded opportunities come primarily from the company's increased thrust into the process manufacturing marketplace with its FlowStream product line, and from exciting new programs for the discrete manufacturing market.
 According to President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Tomasetti, "We made the decision to adopt a decentralized organizational structure in order to more quickly drive new product development and sales. The reorganization gives us the ability to better concentrate appropriate resources on addressing the very different needs of discrete and process manufacturers."
 "Rapid response to the requirements of these distinct markets is both critical and extremely productive," said Dr. Jonathan Golovin, chairman of the board. "Our market-focused teams will be able to more quickly integrate data from customers and the industry in making decisions about products. We anticipate that this will positively impact our ability to close business."
 While the reorganization should improve the company's ability to increase sales over the long term, it is not expected to have an immediate impact on revenues. The company's current business base continues to be affected by the recession, as manufacturers in its target discrete markets limit capital expenditures.
 The new structure consists of four business units:
 -- A discrete products department addressing industries in the
 discrete market such as semiconductors, electronics and
 aerospace and defense;
 -- A process products department addressing industries in the
 process market such as pharmaceuticals, consumer packaged
 goods, food and beverage, and chemicals;
 -- A sales and customer support department;
 -- An operations and channels department charged with developing
 indirect channels of distribution for the company's products
 and functioning as a service organization to the other three
 business units.
 Peter Rieman, formerly vice president, corporate development, will head the discrete business unit. Rieman has been with the company since 1990. He will have responsibility for all software development and marketing programs for Consilium's products targeted at discrete manufacturing companies.
 Tomasetti will assume temporary responsibility for heading up the process business unit, which includes software development and marketing functions for the company's products targeted at process manufacturers.
 As part of the restructuring, Consilium's worldwide sales organization will assume responsibility for after-sales service and support. Rod Murray will continue to head this organization as vice president, worldwide sales.
 Mark Finkel, vice president of operations and channels and chief financial officer, will head up the fourth business unit. Finkel's organization consists of finance and administration, human resources, corporate marketing and software productivity. In addition, Finkel will oversee the company's distribution of its products through indirect channels. Finkel has been with Consilium since 1988 and was previously vice president, finance and legal affairs, and CFO.
 All business units report to President and Chief Executive Officer Tomasetti. Chairman and founder Golovin retains his position as chief technical officer and will also serve as acting vice president of marketing for the process business department.
