Electrical / Fluid Design
In the light of recent digitisation initiatives, circuit documentation has also come up for discussion. Specifically, the question arose as to whether or not a separation between circuit definition and visualization would make sense. In other words: wouldn't it be a great idea to store electrical data as a digital model, and to display it in a way that is suitable for each target group?
Assembling a wire harness is a complex process. Zuken, in concert with our customers and partners, is tirelessly working to simplify the harness manufacturing process. As a matter of fact, the common theme in most customer requirements is to reduce the gap between quoting and delivering the project. Seeing that, Zuken’s primary goal with Harness Builder for E3.series is to empower harness manufacturers to achieve their goals.
An immature design or manufacturing process leads to excess complexity. Smart manufacturing options driven by intelligent design solutions provide a repeatable and efficient path to simplify manufacturing processes.
The best and the most exciting part of what’s new in E3.series 2020 is hands-down the sheer breadth of topics. E3.series 2020 is the best release yet!
The E3.series 2020 release is full of exciting new features and improvements. Notably, more than 25 major enhancements covering a wide variety of topics make this the best release yet! The new features in E3.series 2020 cover a wide range of topics.
We are closer than ever to a perfect design-to-manufacturing solution for simple and complex harnesses alike. In fact, the Harness Builder 2020 for E3.series release has more than 15 significant enhancements.
Communication between disciplines is increasingly critical as complex designs require more and more collaboration. Communication gaps often riddle engineering companies. E3.WiringChecks and E3.WiringCockpit is here to facilitate communication between design, checking, commissioning, technicians, and all parties involved after the initial design.
The 2020 release of Harness Builder for E3.series is more than exciting, it is outright amazing. There are more than 15 major updates all across the toolset. New features include automation, reporting, and documentation options. Furthermore, the new downstream manufacturing, testing, and visualization connections are groundbreaking. I will cover our favorite 2020 updates in this two-part blog series.
In part 1 of this blog series, we took a look at different project settings and configurations. Reviewing how to configure E3.series to meet your company’s needs and help with productivity. Like the project settings, you can also configure your library for E3.series. In addition to the library configuration, there are useful E3.series tools that help save time when working with your library...
We are going to explore E3.series Project settings to improve the configuration, immaterial of your status as a new user, or a long-time user.
When we use design tools we look for tool tricks to help us get the job done in less time and with less manual work. Reducing redundancy or removing unnecessary steps in our tasks are excellent ways to achieve that goal. However, when learning how to use a new design tool those useful tricks aren’t always discovered in the learning process.
Discussion of the remote working options available with Zuken’s E3.series. E3.series is an enterprise-grade engineering platform with many collaborative capabilities and solutions.
A modular electrical design comes with its own set of unique challenges. However, the basic principles of the solution are the same. With this in mind, let’s think modular when it comes to a modular design.
The mechanical model often drives the electrical design for placement and wire routing. There are multiple M-CAD tools used to author the 3D designs like Dassault Systemes CATIA/SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Creo, Inventor, etc. An important part of a successful electrical design process is the collaboration between electrical and mechanical design principles. Zuken’s E3.series tools have enabled this collaboration with much success.
The season to be jolly is just around the corner. We are getting ready to open up our favorite gifts and sip hot cocoa around the fireplace. E3.series users had a lot of reasons to be jolly with the 2019 update bringing in a ton of features and updates. The updates in E3.series 2019 cover the breadth of the solution and there is something for almost every aspect of the design suite. The best sentiments to describe the overall release are ‘intuitive’ and ‘efficient’.
Reducing costs, increasing productivity and ensuring quality – this is the wisdom that every management consultant in the manufacturing industry has in their briefcase today. In fact, over the past two decades, the industry has allocated significant budgets to achieve these goals. At the same time, companies often overlook money that is literally lying on the shop floor in the form of obsolete paper-based transitions to manufacturing – in particular in the areas of electrical engineering and assembly.
