World Class Scheduling and Project Management Technology Grabs Attention at the 2008 WBTshowcase

ARLINGTON, Texas, April 11, 2008 –- Stottler Henke Associates ( was among the top technology innovators from across the nation and around the world presenting at the March 26-27 WBTshowcase in Arlington, Texas. Stottler Henke’s Aurora technology, which uses artificial intelligence technology to create more efficient project schedules, was rigorously screened and mentored by WBTshowcase commercialization experts to present to an audience including over 100 venture investors and Fortune 500 companies.

“Aurora’s scheduling engine has saved Boeing and NASA millions of dollars by generating highly efficient schedules for resource-constrained operations that are shorter than what is provided by current project management software,” says Richard Stottler, president of Stottler Henke.
