A key market dynamic is a pace at which wire harness manufacturers can successfully put new or modified designs into production. Until recently, commercial off the shelf (COTS) software has poorly assisted the dynamic sequence of tasks occurring between new design receipt and production launch. This has forced harness manufacturers to either bear the expense of in-house instrument production or to rely on semi-manual techniques.
Technology to Speed Wire Harness New Product Introduction
This paper focuses on a variety of manufacturing disciplines and discusses key “building blocks” that underpin the robust software solution for manufacturers of harness wire. The business strategy preserves the IP of the organization, reduces the cost of manufacturing engineering, increases the efficiency of processes, and offers early and reliable visibility of gross margins. More significantly, it eliminates crucial bottlenecks from the road towards the launch of new products.
