The automation or configurability of designs is a goal every team wants to achieve, but most teams haven’t seen success mainly due to not having the right tool to get the job done. Electrical design tools that were once used by a vast number of companies originally came as extensions of mechanical design tools, or were very often just basic drafting tools. The ability to create exceptional designs without errors and do it in a fraction of the time required by other tools is the major reason why E3.series is so effective in helping design teams.
Harness Builder for E3.series is a powerful yet easy to use tool based on the proven E3.series toolset from Zuken. Created for harness manufacturers, it produces a synchronized BOM, harness drawings and wirelists all in one sheet.
Please join us for our Fall/Winter Webinar Series that will run from September through March 2019. Over the following months, we’ll be covering a wide range of topics, from Silicon Expert to E3.series MCAD co-design. During each webinar, we’ll cover a common design challenge and present/demonstrate a solution. You’ll leave with takeaways that you can immediately apply to your daily activities.
Harness Builder 2018 for E3.series is packed with new features and customer-driven enhancements with a focus on the manufacturing side of the process with the addition of new direct driving exports and documentation. New enhancements include an innovative way to display the wires on front or back images of connectors and within the tables located next to connectors on the formboard drawings. This assists the assembler with visualizing which colored wires go into the designated connector cavities and can greatly increase harness build speed while limiting errors.
Generating quotes for manufacturing can be a complicated and cumbersome process. It’s a complaint I’ve heard often across many industries. While precious resources are dedicated to tracking parts, long lead items, part costs vs. labor, etc., the manual process leads to gaps, errors and delays. This will hurt your bottom line across the board.
Tech Tip: Use the Component Table in E3.series’ Database Editor to Modify Multiple Library Components in One Window
Using E3.series’ Component Table allows users to make multiple changes to their library components faster and easier. It’s a very powerful and useful tool. Users can add, modify or delete attributes to multiple library components without editing each individual component.
