NEW YORK, April 4 / -- UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced its NX(TM) 4 software has been voted 2005 Product of the Year by the readers of NASA Tech Briefs.

UGS accepted the 2005 Product of the Year award at NASA Tech Briefs' awards event held yesterday evening in New York.

"We consider it the highest compliment when the audience we are striving to serve singles out our solution as one of the best. This award serves as validation that our ongoing efforts to maintain the technological superiority of NX are continuing to pay dividends to UGS and its customers."
