Dolphin Design Success Story

Enhancing Integrated Circuit Design Efficiency & Centralizing Resource Management in the High-Tech Manufacturing Industry   




Dolphin Design

Manufacturing / Microelectronics

Type of Projects

Dolphin Design was struggling with resource management due to insufficient data on resource allocation and team workloads.

Cerri Project provided a cross-platform compatible system that facilitated straightforward implementation, coupled with database access features for automated workload data extraction. It included an integrated simulator for streamlined resource management and offered robust project monitoring tools to enhance visibility and enable accurate forecasting.



Dolphin Design operates as a prominent integrated circuit design house and a supplier of silicon intellectual properties and components tailored for large-scale production. Established in 1985, the company has carved a niche in crafting solutions that not only cater to consumer electronics but also span the wider electronic design automation industry. Committed to sustainability, Dolphin Design champions the integration of sophisticated power management methodologies to enhance energy efficiency in their designs.


Dolphin Design was grappling with resource management inefficiencies, primarily due to the absence of centralized data on resource allocation and team workloads. Operating with a large skilled workforce across branches in France, Canada and Israel, the lack of an integrated project management system led to disjointed teams and scattered workload information. This fragmentation hindered effective planning and resource distribution, compelling the management to seek a robust solution that would enable them to oversee project lifecycles comprehensively and manage team workloads with greater efficiency for streamlined project delivery.


Cerri Project emerged as the solution for Dolphin Design, offering a robust platform compatible with multiple operating systems to streamline implementation. This solution provided a centralized database that facilitated the automatic extraction of workload information, crucial for managing resources effectively. An integrated simulator within Cerri Project became instrumental in refining resource management, enabling the team to simulate various scenarios for optimal resource allocation. Additionally, Cerri Project’s project progress monitoring tools gave Dolphin Design the transparency needed for accurate forecasting and proactive project steering. With the implementation of Cerri Project, Dolphin Design centralized its project documentation, from goals to progress tracking, in one repository, standardizing project management processes and enhancing data quality for improved oversight of project health. 


The implementation of Cerri Project has dramatically refined Dolphin Design’s project management approach. By centralizing project documentation, the company now enjoys more efficient project execution and the standardization of methodologies, which has led to healthier project lifecycles. This centralization has also fostered enhanced data sharing, granting management better visibility for strategic planning and budgeting. Resource allocation has been simplified, as visibility into team workloads and the integrated simulator for resource management has optimized resource distribution. This ease of access to critical workload data empowers leaders to make informed decisions regarding resource assignments. Moreover, the increased visibility from a consolidated data approach has enabled all stakeholders to monitor project progress in real time, improving the accuracy of forecasts related to timelines and finances and allowing management to be more agile in their responses. After seven successful years, Dolphin Design is not only looking to expand Cerri Project’s use across more users but also to deepen its application, including the adoption of the simulator for comprehensive team expense management, thereby enhancing their strategic planning capabilities even further.
