MORGANTOWN, W. VA.
The Concurrent Engineering Research Center, based in Morgantown, West Virginia, is said to hold perhaps the brightest promise in Software Valley. It aims to solve one of America's most ticklish competitive problems: How to speed up the development of an idea into a product. It is developing a system that would allow a company's engineers, designers, and manufacturing personnel to develop a product simultaneously, even if they used different computers and computer languages.
