Software Project will Save Ford Tens of Millions a Yearin Car Repair Bills

Ford claims it will save tens of millions of dollars a year in repair bills after developing warranty software that will give it an early warning of potential manufacturing and design faults.

Rather than buy in the commercial software, Ford chose to buy and configure a business rules engine from business process management specialist Pegasystems.

"We did a bake-off, or a proof of concept, with four different business rules engine companies. And Pega was the clear winner."
