The acquisition expands Zuken’s solution portfolio to include systems engineering, an area of increasing importance to product development companies.
“The acquisition of Vitech advances Zuken’s strategy to become a leader in digital engineering solutions,” said Jinya Katsube, Chief Operating Officer at Zuken, Inc. “Zuken is now uniquely positioned with solutions in both systems engineering and detailed design to take a leadership role in the development of electrical and electronic model-based design practices from product definition to manufacturing.”
As product complexity continues to increase, companies are adopting MBSE tools and processes to better define product requirements, structure, and behavior. Vitech Corporation’s Genesys product is used to develop MBSE models that incorporate the key components for building a complex system involving people, processes, data, and documentation. Companies, particularly in the aerospace, transportation, and military segments are adopting MBSE tools and practices to address product complexity and safety concerns.
“Zuken has demonstrated the commitment and technology to build a new class of unique solutions to serve the needs of today’s engineering community,” said David Long, Founder and President of Vitech Corporation. “We at Vitech look forward to being part of the Zuken family and to playing a key role in their digital engineering strategy.”
Zuken’s global brands include CR-8000, a native 3D multi-board/IC packaging design platform and E3.series, an industry leading wire harness design solution. The acquisition of Vitech complements and expands Zuken’s electronic design automation software portfolio with the addition of system engineering expertise and related products.
