Relevant Business System's New Aerospace Value Pack Puts Sophisticated Software within Reach of Small to Midsize Firms



San Ramon, CA - September 25th, 2003 - Relevant Business Systems, a provider of enterprise software to premier Aerospace & Defense companies, today announced the release of its industry-specific Value Pack. The new Aviation Value Pack is an all-inclusive offering of software, professional services, training and implementation that will allow small to midsize aviation firms to implement software with the sophisticated functionality usually afforded only by their larger competitors.

The Value Pack suite includes modules addressing SOM/Quoting and Estimating, Production Engineering, Inventory Control, Purchasing/Receiving, Manufacturing Resource Planning, Manufacturing Cost, Financials, RFQ Management and Control, and Upload Programs.

Of critical interest to aerospace firms competing in the market's second tier, the suite also includes modules for

· Lot/Serial Control: provides for automated full lot/serial number traceability through the material's system.
· Project Control: tracks costed transactions by project and details Project Status on-line at any point in the life cycle of the project.
· Design Engineering: a "sandbox" for pre-production design efforts that remains invisible to the system (and free from the constraints of manufacturing document control) until the product and associated item masters are copied over.
· Engineering Change Control: enforces discipline and management control over modifications to Bill of Materials and shop floor routings.

"Uncertainty and fear of hidden costs are universal when considering new enterprise software, and these concerns are even greater for smaller manufacturers. The prepackaging of the functionality, the installation, education, training and on-site support is an industry first and allows the smaller manufacturer to know the price of the "fully loaded" software in advance," says Patrick Garrehy, the President, CEO and co-founder of Relevant Business Systems. "We believe we are bringing competitive advantages to a new segment of the market."

The Aviation Value Pack is offered with a variety of financing options and is available for immediate delivery.
