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.

European Editor Pete Starkey and Ucamco Managing Director Karel Tavernier discuss Ucamco’s cloud-based Communic8tor platform which facilitates two-way communication between the CAM engineer and the PCB designer, or any other party involved in the manufacturing process. This gives real-time access to image data and annotations, enabling queries to be resolved, changes to be approved, and a full communications history to be maintained.

When it comes to the PCB design community and the challenges facing it, as well as where design has been and where it’s heading, there aren’t many people as qualified to speak on the topic as long-time industry veterans Happy Holden and Charles Pfeil. Joined by I-Connect007’s Barry Matties at the recent AltiumLive 2017 event in San Diego, the three sat down for a discussion about the current state of PCB design, what the future holds, and what it means to be a designer.

It all started in 1983, at HP, when I complained to our group's vice president that our W. Edwards Deming and Total Quality Management (TQM) Six Sigma training was being concentrated in PCB manufacturing. We had eliminated final inspection and instead placed quality in the hands of the operators with a final electrical test. The electrical test was governed by what we learned from Deming.
