BURLINGTON, Mass, June 18, 1991 -- Symbolics, Inc., has announced that 
Johnson Controls, Inc., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has begun deployment of 
a knowledge-based engineering application on Symbolics MacIvory workstations 
in factories and branch offices throughout the world.

A world leader in design and manufacture of building automation systems, 
automotive batteries, automotive seating, and plastic bottle technology, 
Johnson Controls developed the application to increase the productivity of 
the engineering design function.  Using the Symbolics MacIvory workstations, 
engineers will be able to reduce the amount of time needed to respond to 
customer requests.  In addition, they will be able to provide their customers 
with higher quality solutions because of the depth of information contained 
in the knowledge base.

A key factor in JCI's hardware vendor selection was the long-term commitment 
of Symbolics to object oriented hardware and software technologies.  Johnson 
Controls used the ICAD System, knowledge-based engineering software for mechanical 
design and manufacturing engineering automation, to develop its application on the 
Symbolics MacIvory workstations.

Symbolics, Inc., headquartered in Burlington, Mass., is a leading provider of 
symbolic processing hardware and software used in sophisticated applications 
including interactive scheduling and planning, hypertext-based publishing, 
computer-aided mathematical computing and HDTV-based graphics imaging and processing.
