UGS, a PLM software and services developer, recently acquired D-Cubed, Ltd., an England-based supplier of embedded technology. UGS believes that D-Cubed's contribution to the computer software market has aided their own PLM product. The company will introduce "PLM Components" to the market as the joint transaction of PLM and D-cubed products. The products traditionally supplied by D-Cubed will not change, but rather use any new technology from UGS. For more information on the companies, visit www.ugs.com or www.d-cubed.co.uk.
