Capturing manufacturing details and requirements

Capturing Manufacturing Details

The intelligent library encourages capturing physical and technical requirements early in the design process for enhancing assembly and manufacturing. The application references wire size, wire termination details, terminal crimp, mounting details, cable protection, and other essential details from the library.

The DRC engine cross-checks the design against preset manufacturing feasibility and standards for the engineers. Active checks highlight and stop errors during the design process, while passive checks are available for activation to ensure accuracy.


Cabling and Wiring Cabinet Design

Configurable Design Methodologies

The built-in configuration management system empowers designers to create plug-and-play designs. Quickly capturing reusable designs improves consistency and reduces rework. All design types, including schematics, wire harnesses, and electrical cabinets, are available for dynamic configuration.

Options and variants allow different inclusive and exclusive systems and components to be used.

Advanced configuration management options supplied with DS-E3 enable teams to manage and produce a design with part number variations. Context-driven design reuse enables simple as well as complex Boolean logic-driven configuration management. Automatic updates to reports and documentation eliminate errors and ensure consistency across projects.

Automated assembly process

Automated Assembly Processes

Intelligent design data and accurately capturing design intent are the foundation for taking advantage of digitally augmented assembly processes. Automated reporting and documentation options simplify the product assembly and service process. ​

The always up-to-date design data ensures consistency and quality across the assembly process. Automatic terminal configuration, labeling information, cut-out, layout, keep-out area marking, and other vital characteristics, can eliminate manual error-prone processes.

Step-by-step instructions and sub assemblies can be created with other vital characteristics that can eliminate manual error-prone processes.


Wiring Harness Design Cabinet Design

Automated Manufacturing Processes

Transform manufacturing with the help of intelligent wire harnesses and control cabinet design data. Get accurate wiring schedules, terminal plans, wire lengths, mounting locations, cut-out data, and restrictions to drive automated manufacturing processes.

E3.series automatic wire processing creates accurate digital data that drives highly automated wire cutting and processing machines from vendors like Schleuniger, Komax, and Argus.

Automatic labels and markings can be designed via configurable output formats connected to leading labeling, marking, and other printing options for wires and devices.

Drilling and milling machines can be automatically driven from E3.series panel data to help improve accuracy and consistency.

Intelligent Manufacturing Work Instructions

E3.series simplifies the time-consuming process of creating work instructions by using engineering data. Create, release and manage work instruction packages to define the wire harness building process. The work instructions creation process utilizes the in-depth manufacturing data captured during the design phase.

Pre-built customizable work instruction templates ensure consistency across projects. Auto-actions trigger repeatable custom automation routines to assemble relevant assembly instructions. The combination of accurate design data and configurable reports helps improve quality and increases productivity.

Reports are created automatically, reducing errors and timely manual paperwork creation.
