Stone Aerospace faced the pressure of a tight schedule in designing a one-of-a-kind underwater autonomous vehicle (AUV). The time needed to design the wiring harness for the AUV was reduced by around 12 weeks and $20,000 was saved by using E3.series to automate many aspects of the design process, while integrating the logical and physical design on a single platform.
Reduce Your Total Product Cost
Our solutions a have direct impact on the bottom line
In product development the most important decisions are made up-front. If the right decisions are made early on, it is more likely that a new product introduction will succeed. If corrective action has to be taken later, time-to-market goals may be missed and profitability could be compromised. With our solutions we support front-loading of critical decisions to avoid rework, delays and unplanned costs in the product development process.
We can help achieve superior results through
Frontloading of critical decisions
Our design tools enable front-loading of design constraints and specifications to the design creation process and sophisticated design automation capabilities for physical layout. This will increase efficiency and ensure quality through streamlined collaboration across design and production stages.
Increased efficiency through design reuse
A proven method of increasing engineering and cost efficiency is to re-use existing designs as a basis for new products. To bring this concept to full bearing, a reliable tracking mechanism is required that enables full transparency of where used and change history.
Complex products and supply chains require structured change processes. We provide sophisticated ECAD/MCAD collaboration capabilities coupled with reliable information process management to enable efficient communcation of change and configurations across the extended enterprise.
Our satisfied customers
Müller Martini supplies highly flexible, customized print processing machines to the graphics industry. The Swiss-based company recently took the replacement of an end-of-life CAD installation as an opportunity to re-engineer established procedures in electrical engineering and handover to production.
When Pantec Automation’s customers faced pressure from low-cost counterfeit machinery, they realised the best way to fight back was to help customers reduce their own costs. Through wholesale efficiency improvements achieved by expanding its use of Zuken’s E3.series and integrating it into its ERP/PPS, Pantec Automation enabled its customers to better serve end-users.
BCA Leisure designs and manufactures mixed power cable harnesses for almost every UK-based OEM of caravans and motorhomes. The company has been using E3.series for a number of years and recently started using E3.cable, part of Zuken’s E3.series suite, which is now heavily relied upon during the development of 100+ different prototype harnesses each year. This is followed by provision of detailed production drawings to the shop floor.
