RAND Automation Gateway


New member
We are currently renewing our maintenance with PTC & the are charging us for a product called Rand Automation Gateway.

I believe this is used to allow ModelCheck to interface with/Manipulate objects in ProE, Could anyone shed anymore light on the subject.

ModelCheck is totally different and separate from Automation Gateway.

ModelCheck was a Rand developed Toolkit application, but Rand sold it to PTC a number of years ago. PTC has incorporated it and is sold with the base Pro/E package.

Automation Gateway has been around for a while. Here is an excerpt from their attached brochure,
