Manufacturing and Service Documentation

Menu

Create manufacturing and service documents from design data

Direct use of schematics and wiring data for manufacturing, assembly and service provides a proven way of increasing efficiency and accuracy in product development. Creating manufacturing and serive documents from design data avoids error prone manual re-entry of data and ensure a controlled changed in an end-to-end environment.

We can help you with

Wiring diagrams

Automatically generated schematics/wiring diagrams for assembly, service and after sales support.

Manufacturing documentation

Direct integration with cable planning enabling automatic synchronization of changes in both manufacturing documentation and wiring diagrams.

Handover to production

Direct integrations to wire cutting, stripping and labeling machines to enable an error-free transition to manufacturing.

Our satisfied customers

With such a compressed timeframe for the ACCEL aerospace initiative, speed is everything. E3.series was selected because of its ease-of-use, flexibility, and output capability for all data needed to manufacture wiring harnesses, including bills of materials.

Stjohn YoungmanElectroflight’s Programme Manager, Electroflight

We wanted a flexible, highly integrated electrical design solution which would help us improve our existing system and establish new design processes, ranging from the capture of a vehicle’s functional electrical topology, through detailed design, to the creation of harness manufacture data.

David AlexanderGroup Engineering Systems Manager, Alexander Dennis

With E3.RevisionManagement, we have the ability to verify our compliance with ISO certification and rail standard DIN EN 61082. In particular, the generation of a detailed and complete change history for our manufacturing documentation, the automated revision of parts lists and subsequent transfer to our production system, has led to significant time and economic savings. Moreover, the number of errors has been reduced within the revision workflow and which has been further optimized using error analysis.

Heiner MorichTechnical Project Manager, Vossloh Locomotives

Using E3.series will give us the ability to provide much more engineering design work for our customers. There’s also the added value in terms of manufacturing having access to a digital database of components that we can pull up on the shop floor. Overall E3.series will give us the platform for closer collaboration with our customers and reduce the time for providing new designs or design changes, in turn reducing lead times and costs.

Steve ClarkeManaging Director, Teepee Electrical

Whenever we start a new documentation project now, we simply load the components into the projects, create the connections and generate the BOM – that’s it!

Horst FößlHead of Engineering, Kässbohrer Transport Technik

The benefit that we were able to achieve through the introduction of E3.series is that we can not only build projects in batch sizes from one to five, but that we can also provide them with comprehensive CE compliant documentation.

Horst FößlHead of Engineering, Kässbohrer Transport Technik

The detailed schematic reduces the time we spend answering customer questions as a result of the quality of documentation, which has allowed us to reduce costs associated with customer support. We also anticipate reduced downtime involved in repairs due to the superior quality of the schematics.

How to create customised circuit diagrams

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?
