Revolutionizing the Commissioning Process Using E3.WiringChecks

A drawing on paper remains evidently two dimensional with little to no room for improvement. A PDF is a step up with the ability to pack a few layers of data but without the ability to have detailed instructions to drive manufacturing excellence.

E3.WiringChecks works with your robust design data to create a step-by-step wiring and review system to accelerate deployment and manufacturing velocity. The system provides an efficient method to track, report and instruct a detailed process to drive your amazing designs towards an amazing product. Read on to learn how to revolutionize the commissioning process using E3.WiringChecks. Here is a detailed look into each of the different GUIs this tool has to offer.

Creating a test/commissioning project

An E3.series project is loaded into E3.WiringChecks either as new commissioning or as an existing one to continue the review. The application runs inside the E3.redliner tool to make sure all the markings are stored as a layer on top of the project. This links the information together without fundamentally changing the underlying design.

Main plug-in navigation box

An easy-to-use interface enables users to learn the tool quickly and provides the much-needed productivity boost early in the process. The interface has buttons to accept or reject a device/symbol or wires as part of the checking process. All the events and entries are captured and run through the desired verification and approval process.

A drawing receives an ‘In-Check’ status when the user starts the test. That status is only removed once the designated supervisor receives the approval. The inaccurate and rejected items track details such as the type of issue, the reporting user, timestamps and other information. These details are completely user-configurable to match your company process.

Event protocol box

Within the event protocol box, you’ll find colors that are easy-on-the-eyes to represent the different states of the event along with intuitive check/sign-off procedures. The owner of the review can easily manage the project by exporting error logs, review status, and an overall event log.

With the ability to manage the project under review, you can easily ensure that all tasks are complete, and your review step is well on its way to completion, without the need to review the checking process.

Creating a repeatable process

The E3.WiringChecks plugin gives you the ability to use E3.series project data for commissioning/checking, helping to replace manual and paper-based procedures. You’ll be able to create a repeatable, automated process to generate documentation during design checking including error logs, stats and event report to keep your team on track.

Expandable documentation

E3.WiringChecks gives the ability to export all related event protocol, error logs, and status report documents via an Excel spreadsheet. This can greatly enhance the reliability in the manufacturing, assembly, and deployment processes. You have complete control of the customization of these documents to meet your specific process requirements and input information in your ESO process.

With this intuitive way of documenting and tracking design error reviews and responsibilities, E3.WiringChecks helps build the link to your digital thread by connecting the ideation process and end of life process. 

As part of a robust solution, E3.WiringChecks is guaranteed to help bring you closer to manufacturing excellence to drive your amazing designs towards an amazing product.
