York International chooses Cyco AutoManager Meridian as its Engineering Data Management solution

Cyco Software, a leading global software company offering Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions, announced today that YORK International, one of the largest manufacturers of HVAC, heating, air conditioning and refrigerator units in the world, has implemented Cyco AutoManager Meridian and the Cyco AutoManager Publisher. Both products help YORK's ECO2 group to manage and share engineering data throughout the product design process that helps the company to cut down design time and bring products to market faster.

Dan Bounds, Senior CAD Specialist, is in charge of design engineering at YORK's ECO2 group. "It is simple," he says. "We need Cyco AutoManager Meridian to keep things on track here. We wouldn't be able to get our work done on time and deliver prototypes if it wasn't for Cyco AutoManager Meridian."

Together with DataCore Technology, a Cyco Software integrator in Exton, PA, YORK has set up a sophisticated engineering data management framework that allows the company to connect the designers to the service groups in the field and the manufacturing plants in Mexico and Hattiesburg, MS. The company has implemented the Cyco AutoManager Publisher and the Cyco AutoManager Webclient to publish and share design data with its remote service staff and manufacturing plants.

One of the biggest accomplishments of Cyco AutoManager Meridian is the ease of how it manages as-built drawings with its extensive support for Autodesk products. "Without Cyco AutoManager we would not be able to manage our [Autodesk] 2D and 3D drawings," Bounds says. "It would be extremely confusing. Cyco AutoManager Meridian maintains [drawings] a lot better. Better than any directory structure ever would. It is extremely important to us. I have managed a couple other EDM products in the same class - as far as price - but in the last couple of years AutoManager Meridian has risen above the others in functionality and ease of use."

Dan Bounds blinks at the notion of not having Cyco AutoManager Meridian. "It is not just a simple matter of return-on-investment to us," he emphasizes. "Quite frankly, it is a matter of devastation. We would be in total chaos without it."
