Wire harness manufacturers need a simple and quick process to create the wire harness design, estimate cost and generate quotations with manufacturing build documentation. Many manufacturers today are using manual processes that are time consuming and error prone. Harness Builder for E3.series is a low-cost product built for the harness manufacturer to automate many of those manual processes while eliminating errors and lowering costs.
This webinar will detail the process of creating wire harness quotations and the design detail required for the test and manufacturing of simple and complex harnesses. A large component database with links to manufacturing aids and tools is key to accurate quotation and design output.
The demonstration will show the ease of standard part selection from the Harness Builder for E3.series library to facilitate quick and accurate customer cost estimation and quotations. It will then follow through the design cycle to detail a manufacturing formboard and finally show the direct exports to Cirris wire harness test systems and wire cut/strip and labeling machines.
This webinar takes place September 6, 2017, at 2 pm Eastern time.

The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.

Using powerful constraint techniques can be a double-edged sword. While the design process is made much safer by including constraints, it is all too easy to over-constrain the design and make it impossible to complete routing and placement. Even paper design guidelines can make products uneconomic to produce unless a great deal of engineering knowledge is applied during the design.

Ready or not, 5G is coming, and it will require the right circuit materials for many different types of high-frequency circuits, including power amplifiers. 5G represents the latest and greatest in wireless technology, and it will be challenging to design and fabricate, starting with the circuit board materials, because it will operate across many different frequencies, such as 6 GHz and below, as well as at millimeter-wave frequencies (typically 30 GHz and above).
