WESTFORD, MA – Zuken has formed a new R&D unit in Japan. The company established the Process Innovation Development Department, a specialized development team under the Technology Division. This department will assist the Process Innovation Promotion Department, which has been responsible for business development in the fields of MBSE and systems engineering in Japan. The department will enable Zuken to work closely with Zuken Vitech to expedite efforts to develop application software and utilities linked to the Genesys modeling tool, which interfaces with existing Zuken products.
At the same time, Zuken appointed Enrique Krajmalnik as chief operating officer of Zuken Vitech. Together with David Long, president of Zuken Vitech, the new COO will take the lead in business development in the advanced MBSE market in the US and bolster product planning for the global market through development collaboration between Japan and the US.
"As products become increasingly complex, we see our customers and the broader market moving toward digital engineering and MBSE-based solutions," said Jinya Katsube, president and COO of Zuken. "Zuken is committed to delivering forward-looking, innovative solutions. Our newly formed Process Innovation Development Department, in collaboration with Zuken Vitech, will anticipate customer needs now and well into the future."
