YOKOHAMA, Japan, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zuken Inc. announced on May 31 that the Microsoft Devices division has selected Zuken's DS-2 engineering data management solution for library and design data management with supply chain connectivity.

Microsoft's Devices division, which includes Surface, Xbox, Band, HoloLens, Phones and Surface Hub, needed to manage design data more effectively, improving data integrity and connectivity with the supply chain. The growth in Microsoft's Devices portfolio warranted reuse and sharing of electrical CAD data across devices, improving design and reducing design cycles. The design team also wanted better notifications when supply chain factors changed that could affect their design delivery and manufacturability.

"Zuken's DS-2 data management software offered everything we needed," says Erik von Fuchs, Director of Engineering, Surface Products, Microsoft Corporation. "As the Surface (TM) portfolio of products grew, data management for electrical design became an increasingly critical element of our process, and we were excited about the opportunity DS-2 provides to better integrate supply chain optimization directly into design decisions right at the engineer's desktop. We are in the second phase of deployment managing our component library, and so far we are very pleased with the results," he continued.

"We are excited about this opportunity to work alongside Microsoft and look forward to building a long-term relationship," says Kent McLeroth, Chief Executive Officer, Zuken USA, Inc. "Getting engineering data management right is fast becoming a key differentiator for product companies. Microsoft's selection of DS-2 and the success we have had in Phase 1 speaks to the effectiveness of our solution," he added.
