Most technical people are familiar with the term "zero wait-state". When we founded our company ten years ago we wanted a name that reflected what we do. Too many companies in our industry have meaningless initials or names that have nothing to do with their activities. I have difficulty sometimes recalling some of these names and I wanted something that would resonate. The term goes back to the early days of electronic design when memory chips and system busses functioned at different speeds. Wait-States were used to enable the faster system to wait and synchronize with the slower system. Eventually engineers developed "zero wait-state" memory which fully synchronized with the bus and provided optimal performance. We see similar parallels in the product development environment where technology and process tend to operate at different speeds. It also manifests itself in the different systems companies use to capture product development and manufacturing information. We develop software and provide services to eliminate these wait-states between process and technology and between disparate systems which results in optimal performance for product development organizations.
