Based on a study of over 1,200 IC projects, this webinar introduces you to eight best practices in use by product development organizations in the top IC companies. Engineering managers leading these teams consistently execute and deliver on-time and within budget—even on their most complex IC projects. They’re leveraging new solutions that enable them to do the following:

  • Accurately quantify IC design complexity based on technical specs
  • Determine the most aggressive, yet achievable, IC project plans—based on the design’s complexity
  • Rigorously quantify schedule risk and calibrate it against industry norms
  • Compare IC development productivity to the industry’s best-in-class

Learn about best practices, unique tools and industry data, which together enable consistently correct decisions—based on facts.

Short presentation followed by a demo of the tools and Q&A from audience

60 minutes

Who should attend:
IC project managers, engineering and program managers, VP/directors of engineering, and system / chip architects.


Alex Silbey; Director of Professional Services, Numetrics
Alex has degrees in Electrical Engineering and in Computer Engineering from Purdue University and has over 20 years of experience in designing high-speed, high-complexity IC. Alex has been awarded fourteen patents in the areas of computer and networking hardware. His work experience includes Silicon Graphics where he created front-to-back EDA tool flows for over 20 IC designs, including the industry’s first million-gate and five million gate ASICs.  Alex Silbey is Director of Professional Services at Numetrics Management Systems.

Shannon Johnston; Sr. Director of Professional Services & Support, Numetrics

Shannon Johnston received his degree in electrical engineering from Simon Fraser University in Canada and spent 18 years with Nortel Networks. At Nortel he pioneered IP libraries and reuse methodologies and has developed IP cores for SERDES, multiport memories, and communication interfaces.  Shannon has been with Numetrics since 2004 and he leads the applications support for North American and European users.
