    installation instructions and any special tools, equipment, or media to
    Buyer at no charge and shall reimburse Buyer for the expenses it incurs in
    implementing the mandatory Engineering Change.  A mandatory change may
    require that the Product Specifications be updated to refer to the new

the parties shall negotiate the extent to which each of them bears the cost of
field replacement or retrofit to meet the new or modified standard.

IBM/ACS Product Purchase Agreement      Page 138                 April 11, 1996

 
IBM may assign a resident representative to ACS's facility to perform source
audits. Appropriate notification will be given to ACS of this intent.


9.0 Product and Spare Parts PERFORMANCE

9.1 General


IBM will periodically provide ACS with summary defect data.  The period the data
will cover will be established by the parties, as needed, to ensure defect free
Product and Spare Parts.  The data provided will be the combined results of
incoming quality audits, any defect discovered during prove integration into IBM
process and field repair audits.

The parties shall meet at least one (1) time each calendar quarter to review
this data, defect trends and any corrective actions that were implemented or
need to be implemented to eliminate defects.



9.2 Installation

IBM expects that Product and Spare Parts will be installed by IBM's Customer
Engineering force in the field defect free. The goal for the three (3) month
rolling average for install will be at least 97% defect free.


9.3 Early Life

IBM expects that the Product and Spare Parts will perform in the field (at the
End User location) without failure.  The goal for the three month rolling
average for early life failures will be jointly determined by IBM and ACS.


9.4 Full Field

IBM expects that the Product and Spare Parts will perform in the field (at the
End User location) without failure.  The goal for the three month rolling
average for full field defects will be jointly determined by IBM and ACS.


9.5 Remedies

If the Product and Spare Part fails to meet the above quality/reliability
requirements for the install, early life or full field, IBM and ACS agree to
perform failure/process analysis and provide positive corrective actions. Such
corrective actions may require actions by IBM, ACS, or both parties. If it is
determined that ACS is the cause of the failure to meet the above
quality/reliability requirements, ACS shall issue Engineering Changes as defined
in Section 8 "PRODUCT CHANGES" of this Agreement, to remedy the cause of the
failure.  Other actions may be required to remedy such failures and will be
negotiated on an event by event basis and mutually agreed to by the parties.

     authority) are, now or hereafter, owned or controlled, directly or
     indirectly, by a party hereto, but such corporation, company or other
     entity shall be deemed to be a Subsidiary only as long as such ownership or
     control exists.

5.   Both IBM and ACS understand and agree that in the event that additional
     Information or information of a more highly sensitive or confidential
     nature needs to be exchanged, a mutually agreed upon amendment to this
     Agreement which governs both the exchange and use of such Information or
     information of a more highly sensitive or confidential nature, will be
     executed by the parties.

6.   All disclosures of Information by Discloser to Recipient pursuant to this
     Agreement shall be made by or under the supervision of a Technical
     Coordinator for Discloser to a Technical Coordinator for Recipient or their
     respective designees, if any, who shall be

 
     identified in an express writing.  Such Technical Coordinators are
     identified in Paragraph 12 hereof.  All disclosures of Information will be
     deemed to be nonconfidential unless specifically designated at the time of
     disclosure (in the manner described in Paragraph 7 hereof) as including
     confidential Information.  With respect to all such Information disclosed
     by Discloser to Recipient, except such Information as is so designated as
     the confidential Information of Discloser, Discloser grants to Recipient,
     to the extent, if any, of its interest therein, a nonexclusive, royalty
     free, irrevocable, unrestricted, and worldwide license to use, have used,
     disclose to others, make copies in the case of documents, and dispose of,
     all without limitation, such nonconfidential Information in any manner
     Recipient determines, including the development, manufacture, marketing,
     and maintenance of products and services incorporating such nonconfidential
     Information.

7.   With respect to such Information of Discloser, when it is disclosed in
     writing (including such Information recorded in a medium such as a tape or
     disk), the writing will state the date of disclosure, that the Information
     contained therein is confidential and that it is being disclosed pursuant
     to this Agreement, and will contain an appropriate legend, such as "IBM
     Confidential Information" or "ACS Confidential Information." If such
     disclosure is orally and/or visually made after the date of execution of
     this Agreement, then the confidential nature of the Information so
     disclosed shall be confirmed in a written resume within twenty (20) days
     following such disclosure.  If such disclosure was orally and/or visually
     made prior to the date of execution of this Agreement, then the
     confidential nature of the Information so disclosed shall be confirmed in a
     written resume within twenty (20) days following execution of this
     Agreement.  The resume will specifically identify that Information which is
     confidential.  Such resume will have such Information which is confidential
     identified as "IBM Confidential Information" or "ACS Confidential
     Information.

8.   Subject to the provisions of Paragraphs 9 and 10 hereof, for a period of
     three (3) years from the date of disclosure, the period of confidentiality,
     Recipient agrees to use the same care and discretion to limit disclosure of
     such received confidential Information of Discloser to only those of its
     employees who have a need to know it and to avoid disclosure, publication
     or dissemination of the Information by those Recipient employees, using at
     least the same degree of care as Recipient employs with similar information
     of its own which it does not desire to publish, disclose or disseminate.

Recipient may use any writings or resumes containing any such confidential
Information provided by Discloser for any purpose, subject to the obligation of
confidentiality in the above paragraph.  Recipient shall be free to use the
residuals of such confidential Information of Discloser for any purpose
including use in the development, manufacture, marketing and maintenance of its
products and services.  However, Recipient may not overtly utilize Discloser's
confidential Information or the residuals thereof to develop products similar to
the products developed and/or marketed by Discloser.  Otherwise, any permitted
use hereunder with respect to the residuals of such confidential Information
shall be subject only to the obligations with respect to disclosure of such
confidential Information during such foregoing specified period of
confidentiality. Recipient may make a reasonable number of

 
copies of any writings or resumes containing Discloser confidential Information
received from Discloser pursuant to this Agreement.

The term "residuals", as used in this Agreement, shall mean that Information in
non-tangible form which may be retained by those employees of Recipient who have
had access to the confidential Information of Discloser during the term of this
Agreement.  It is understood that receipt of Discloser's confidential
Information under this Agreement shall not create any obligation in any way
limiting or restricting the assignment and/or reassignment of Recipient
employees within Recipient.  The obligations respecting the confidentiality of
shall not, however, be affected or changed as a result of any such assignment
and/or reassignment of Recipient employees.

Following the period of confidentiality, no obligation of any kind is assumed
by, or is to implied against, Recipient with respect to any Discloser
confidential Information, and Recipient shall be free to disclose, publish or
disseminate such confidential Information to others without limitation and shall
have all the rights relative to such Information as are set forth in Paragraph 6
hereof as if such confidential Information had been transferred as
nonconfidential Information under said Paragraph.

9.   Disclosure of such confidential Information of Discloser shall not be
     precluded if such disclosure is:

     a)   In response to a valid order of a court or other governmental body of
          the United states or any political subdivision thereof; provided,
          however, that Recipient shall first have given notice to Discloser and
          made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order requiring that
          the Information and/or documents so disclosed be used only for the
          purposes for which the order was issued; or

     b)   otherwise required by law; or

     c)   necessary to establish rights under this Agreement.

10.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the obligations
     specified in Paragraph 8 hereof will not apply to any Information that:

     a)   is already in the possession of Recipient or any of its Subsidiaries
          without obligation of confidence;
     b)   is independently developed by Recipient or any of its Subsidiaries;
     c)   is or becomes publicly available without breach of this Agreement;
     d)   is rightfully received by Recipient from a third party;
     e)   is released for disclosure by Discloser with its written consent; or 
          is inherently disclosed in the use, lease, sale or other distribution
          of, or publicly available supporting documentation for, any present or
          future product or service by or for Recipient or any of its
          Subsidiaries.

 
11.   The term of this Agreement during which Information may be disclosed by
      Discloser to Recipient, and not the period of confidentiality, shall be
      from September 16, 1995 through December 31, 1995 and may be extended by
      the written of the parties.  Either party may terminate this Agreement
      prior to that time, with or without cause, upon ten (10) days written

      infringement of patents or other rights of others.

16.   Except for the foregoing restraints on the use of confidential Infor-
      mation, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as impairing the
      right of either party to develop, design, make, use, procure and/or market

Attachment 11: Warranty Procedures
- ----------------------------------



Article 10.5 of the Agreement contains several alternatives for handling breach
of warranty, however, in most cases the warranty claim will be handled via an
exchange of parts, When the Buyer discovers a Product which is a candidate for a
warranty claim the Buyer shall fill out appropriate forms and return the Product
to the Seller.  The Seller will in turn replace or repair the Product and return
to the Buyer.

The parties agree to put a detailed set of operating procedures in place to
handle warranty claims.
