Since the period when I added 13 countries in four years to my “new placed visited” map, my professional life has calmed down somewhat with respect to a frenetic pace of business travel. Very recently I made my first intercontinental business trip for a while. To Germany. Germany has changed a little in the last decade since I visited. Some new sights around Frankfurt Airport. My rental … Read More

Here’s something new in this blog – a post I’ve mostly not written. Below is a response from Russell Forsyth on the subject of the how to get that “time to value” in an implementation which I addressed last time. He’s a Senior Consultant with Mentor Consulting Division Americas. We’ll try and keep this under 20,000 words by not going through Russ’ successes and accolades. Russ has the view competent … Read More

Would you set foot on an electric-powered or hybrid aircraft? It may be some time before that happens, but it is getting closer every day. If engineers at GE Aviation have anything to say about it, electric aircraft will be flying sooner rather than later. I learned that GE Aviation is creating an Electrical Power Integrated Systems Research & Development Center (EPISCENTER) near Dayton, Ohio, to focus … Read More

From time to time it looks like too much. All those things you should just know about Capital can be a little bit daunting. But you join the little pieces of knowledge with the bigger ones until you become an expert. One of the customers I deal with has staff who guide designs all the way from concept and architectural studies, through systems design in detailed optioned logical drawing to Capital Integrator … Read More
Anticipation Now for the future. The last blog began by a glance over the shoulder to the past. This week, the perspective is forward looking. And a new departure - a European location from which to make a posting. I’m in the Mentor Graphics office in Newbury, England and earlier in the week spent some time in the office in Altrincham farther north. Preparations are in full swing for the release … Read More
Recently the subject of training has come up in the context of some work discussions. Training in relation to an extensive software product like Capital has quite a few facets. For example there is the distinction between knowing the technical details (which buttons to press, which places to look at to make the programs do what you came to them to make them do) and then there is the other matter, not quite … Read More
