Stephen Collins, Chief Executive Officer at Anark Corporation, will be the keynote speaker for Zuken Innovation World (ZIW) Americas 2019. ZIW is part of Zuken’s series of annual conferences taking place around the globe. These conferences bring together customers, partners and industry professionals for networking, learning, and sharing of innovative ideas.

Collins will speak on “Digital Transformation and the Digital Thread,” explaining the benefits of a connected, collaborative, information-rich digital thread spanning the product life cycle, along with the challenges associated with its implementation. Collins will illustrate how digitalization of different phases of the product life cycle can offer new efficiencies not available in a document-based development process.

Collins is a 25+ year IT industry veteran and entrepreneur with an extensive background in 3D visualization, Model Based Enterprise, and PLM software and solutions. He is an experienced operator with strong sales process, marketing, business development, technology licensing, and equity financing experience.

During his tenure at Anark, Stephen helped guide Anark through its evolution from innovative 3D web visualization and digital media technology developer to emerge as a fast-growing, leading provider of automated technical enterprise content management, visual collaboration, and digital thread solutions that enable leading global manufacturers to communicate and collaborate more effectively and securely throughout engineering, supply chain, manufacturing, and field service operations. 

Education and Innovation

The ZIW conference combines education, networking and innovative ideas offering a fun and interactive experience for our participants. Zuken is broadening the agenda by adding an E/E digital engineering track covering topics focused on Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), digital thread, digital twin, artificial intelligence and more. Participants will hear case studies from customers and partners on current challenges and experiences they are facing and how they address them with Zuken’s solutions. Embedded within the two-day agenda, participants can attend Zuken University classes focused on upcoming software releases and advancing product knowledge and skills. The popular Expert Bar will return offering 1:1 access to Zuken’s technical experts and a hands-on look at the latest product releases.

During SMTA Atlanta, I spoke with Albert Gaines of HiGain Design. We discussed Albert’s belief that everything starts with design and that too many engineers and designers focus solely on the final board at the expense of the documentation, which is a designer’s most important product.

Mentor’s EDA Perspective on Managing Design Rules

I recently spoke with Dave Wiens, product manager, and Mike Santarini, EDA content director of corporate marketing, both of Mentor, a Siemens business, about design rules and constraints, and what their customers want regarding design rules. They explained how EDA companies like Mentor help designers constrain for performance while avoiding over-constraining and increasing the cost of the board and also being manufacturing-aware.

Linda Mazzitelli: PTC Goes all in on ECAD/MCAD Collaboration

02/28/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At AltiumLive Munich, I ran into Linda Mazzitelli of PTC. Linda has worn a lot of hats in the PCB design world—she’s even married to a designer. I asked Linda to discuss her current work at PTC and the apparent convergence of ECAD and MCAD, which many think has been a long time coming for this industry.
