					      Maplesoft Announces Partnership with Siemens PLM Software

Collaboration Provides NX Users the Ability to Use Maple’s Computational Power to
                          Analyse and Optimise Designs

Waterloo, Canada; 10 September, 2009: Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high
performance software tools for engineering, science, and mathematics, today
announced a partnership with Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens
Industry Automation Division, and a leading global provider of product lifecycle
management (PLM) software and services. Maple™, the technical computing software
from Maplesoft, supplies important analysis capabilities to CAD systems, giving users
of NX™ software, the digital product development solution from Siemens PLM
Software, the ability to use the computational power of Maple to analyse and optimise

Maple 13 delivers a broad suite of math and analysis tools in an interface that scales
easily from quick design calculation to full application development. From the world’s
most robust math engine and live design documentation to CAD connectivity and code
generation, Maple supports all stages of the design lifecycle. Using Maple, design
engineers can answer questions such as “What are the mathematical relationships
between objects?” and “How do changes to object properties impact other objects?”
NX connectivity also provides a convenient way to start Maple from within the NX

Some key advantages of connecting NX with Maple include the following:
   • Users can retrieve parameters form an NZ CAD model, optimise those
      parameters, and update the CAD model with the revised parameter values
      directly within the Maple environment
   • The CAD Link Assistant in Maple provides a quick, interactive way to
      experiment with the NX CAD Connectivity functionality without having to write
   • With the CAD Link Assistant in Maple, it is easy to browse the scalar quantities
      in an NX CAD design, so it can be used as a tool to aid in writing your own CAD-
      capable worksheets.
   • Using the Maple programming language and built-in API commands, NX users
      can create specialised tools for part reconfiguration and optimisation.

“The addition of Maplesoft to the Siemens PLM Software Partner Programme is part of
our commitment to continuously provide customers with the broadest range in high
quality software tools that complement our own offerings,” said Rich Ramsay, Vice

President of Partner and Components Marketing, Siemens PLM Software. “NX users
who choose to implement Maple software will benefit from its ability to reduce the
time needed to create complex designs and perform deep analysis.”

Expanding Maple’s CAD connectivity to include Siemens PLM Software’s NX, provides
more choices and flexibility to our current users,” said Laurent Bernardin, Executive
Vice President, Maplesoft. “NX users will gain immense power from Maple since no
other product on the market can provide the same computational power,
mathematical breadth and depth, mathematically aware programming language, and
application creation tools and connectivity options, all integrated into a highly
intuitive technical-document environment.”

Maplesoft’s vision for design engineers is realised through tools that employ its core
technologies, which include the world’s most advanced symbolic computation engine
(in Maple) and revolutionary physical modeling techniques (in MapleSim). Together,
they provide engineers with cutting-edge tools for design, modelling, and high
performance simulation that can lower costs and reduce product cycle time by weeks
and months. Partnerships, such as the one with Siemens PLM Software, allow
Maplesoft to bring these core technologies to a broader range of engineers.
