How to Detail a Harness to Reduce Manufacturing Costs and Time
This webinar will outline the best practices for creating harness manufacturing drawings. The overall cost of designing and manufacturing a harness can be drastically reduced by following a few simple steps. These cost reducing best practices are applicable to both in-house and outsourcing manufacturing.
An accurate document detailing all aspects of the harness is the key to a robust workflow. The harness documentation at a minimum should include a Bills of Materials, wiring instructions, splice definition, precise dimensions and harness covering information. Outsourcing can reduce your costs as long as the design is accurately communicated without the need for the production team to go back and forth with the engineering team.
The demonstration will include the easiest methods to add the required information in a drawing without the need to increase design time. The software used to describe the solution is E3.series Harness Builder. However, these best practices and tips are applicable to the industry in general.
What you’ll learn:
- 5 common mistakes in creating a harness drawing and how to avoid them
- 4 categories of information that are essential to manufacturing
- How to speed up the design process by automating the documentation
- How reducing mistakes in your documentation can save you money
- How to put these tips into practice
Who should attend:
- Harness manufacturers and designers
- Technical and electrical design engineers
- Engineering managers
- Product managers, quality assurance and testing engineers
- Managers, etc.
