Elimination of $20,000 in cable rework and expedited delivery costs.
John Harman, Electrical Engineer: “There’s no doubt in my mind that if we had used our previous design methods we would have run into many problems where the design did not exactly match the bill of materials. It would have required cables to be sent back for rework which would have involved considerable additional expenses and set the schedule back. With our new automated approach we got the design right the first time and did not have redo a single cable. We estimate that we saved about $20,000 in cable rework and expedited delivery costs. We also achieved substantial productivity gains because engineers had a very clear picture of what one another were doing and because of the automated checks performed by the software.”
