Wire Harness Engineering


A comprehensive approach to wire harness engineering

A wire harness design requires both a 3D physical representation and a logical representation of connections, device and component characteristics. With comprehensive information exchange capabilities between E3.series and all major MCAD systems, and powerful wire harness design and manufacturing outputs, Zuken provides a comprehensive approach to wire harness engineering.

We can help you with

Wire harness design exploration and optimization

Optimization of complex wire harness designs based on inputs from heterogeneous sources. Specialized functionality tailored specifically to topology exploration provides the ability to create and evaluate different architectural concepts.

Comprehensive support of industry standard formats

Coherent multi-sheet print outputs and support of industry standard formats such as PLMXML, KBL and VEC. Comprehensive manufacturing outputs including connection tables, clips, heat-shrink and convolute information.

A consistent end-to-end environment

Bidirectional integration with cable planning, enabling automatic synchronization of changes in both manufacturing documentation and wiring diagrams ensures a seamless and error free design flow in a consistent environment.

Our satisfied customers

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.

Since we started using E3.series almost two years ago we have reduced our design cycle by almost 40%, compared with our previous practice of wire harness design using non-automated tools.

E3.series will allow us to increase the quality and performance of our harness designs for manufacturing. And because E3.series is aimed at specialists in electrical architecture it supports our overall design process, right up to the generation of production orders.

Using a configurator with E3.series means we can do our work not just much faster but with fewer mistakes too

Jens FrickeGroup, Manager for Wiring Diagrams, Alstom

Going from months to weeks to design the wire harnesses and agree to a POC (proof of concept) [for a feasibility test] has not only made ATK more competitive, but has established us as a trusted partner of NASA... and much more confidence that our designs are correct. Zuken has been an exceptional partner throughout this process.
