Zuken Webinar: Automated ECAD for Wire Harness Quoting


Reading time ( words)

Generating a quote for manufacturing a harness is complicated and cumbersome. It is the common theme across many industries. Precious resources are spent keeping track of parts, long lead items, cost of parts vs. labor etc., and invariably a manual process leads to gaps and errors. Delayed projects and cost penalties are hurting bottom lines across the board.

ECAD offers many advantages over traditional manual processes with the ability to select parts from a vast database of smart components and synchronization with business systems like ERP to drive a complete quotation based on the design.

With ECAD, designs are accelerated with the use of intelligent drawings using smart components and automation of mundane tasks like the generation of bills of materials, wire lists and splice details. The manufacturing and commissioning process is streamlined with the help of formboard drawings, on-demand MCAD integration and design rule checks to ensure quality is always top notch. The proverbial cherry on top is the ability an ECAD system provides to drive your production workflow by connecting with industry-leading automated test and harness manufacturing machines.

CPCA 2018 Seminar Overview

07/24/2018 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
I had the good fortune to speak at a seminar sponsored by the CPCA and organized by the China Team of I-Connect007 in Shanghai. This full-day seminar was on one of today’s hot topics, “Automation in PCB Manufacturing.”

Faster Board Speeds Demand Constraint-Driven Design

06/19/2018 | Ralf Bruening, Zuken
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.

Fully Automated Schematic Verification

02/05/2018 | Craig Armenti, Mentor
Schematic verification is a part of the hardware engineer’s responsibility just as PCB layout verification is an accepted part of the PCB designer’s responsibility. However, with today’s circuit designs becoming more and more complex, time-consuming manual schematic verification is no longer an option. Manual verification of a complex circuit introduces significant risk by not identifying schematic design errors that are, in turn, passed to the downstream processes and ultimately to the fabricated board.
