Zuken Webinar: Automated ECAD for Wire Harness QuotingMay 28, 2018 | Zuken
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
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.
Join Zuken for its live webinar titled “Why Use Automated ECAD Tools to Quote Wire Harnesses?” on Wednesday, May 30, at 2 pm EST.

One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
