Designing, Implementing and Proving a Business Based on CAGD

In 1986, Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation with support from Ford Motor Company and the Chrysler Corporation began development of a new design system to support conceptual design of complex products with complex surfaces. In 1995, after two profitable years, the business was sold to Parametric Technology Corporation for $34.5 million. The speaker will review the history of the business over that period, the role current research played in product development and business strategy during those nine years, and general business modeling for high technology endeavors.
