WESTFORD, MA, and MUNICH, GERMANY, March 29, 2022 – Zuken, Inc. announced the expanded deployment of CR-8000, the latest electronic systems design solution from Zuken, by Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Ltd., a leading global provider of Industrial Automation and Test and Measurement solutions, at all Japanese, Chinese, and Korean subsidiary locations.  In addition, Zuken’s DS-CR for design data management was adopted and deployed at all Japanese locations.

Yokogawa Electric selected CR-8000 and DS-CR in 2020.  With Zuken’s support, Yokogawa Electric successfully migrated CADVANCE design data and processes to CR-8000.  Yokogawa Electric completed the transition in November 2021 at all locations in Japan and subsidiaries in China and Korea.  Based on their successes, the company is now considering adopting CR-8000 and DS-CR at its other regional sites.

Regarding the restructuring of Yokogawa Electric’s electronics design environment, Mr. Takaaki Mizusawa, Manager, Technology Platform Function, Common Technology Development Department of Yokogawa Electric, commented, “For us, the essential condition was that in-house know-how accumulated for ensuring the quality of the printed circuit board and CADVANCE data as its deliverables can be inherited and smoothly incorporated in PDM.” (Product Data Management: A system for the integrated management of product design and parts information).

“Moreover, after examining the feasibility of future expansion for simulation and electromechanical design collaboration, the introduction of Zuken solutions was the decisive move to assure the new design environment that would surely respond to the growing complexity and enhance electronic technology challenges”, Mr. Takaaki Mizusawa added.

Mr. Jinya Katsube, President and CEO of Zuken, said, “Zuken provided comprehensive support to Yokogawa Electric once they decided to restructure their existing design environment.  Because the product development at Yokogawa Electric includes an extensive product lifecycle and demands high quality and reliability, we will continue our efforts for further optimization and development at the other locations to create an appropriate design environment for their product development.”
