Manufacturing engineering phase
Starting with data representing the physical harness (eg. customer data in XML format), this set of tools will prepare harness manufacturing data. First step is to load the data (effectivity and legacy management). Then, ECN applies automated changes, executes custom rules and checks physical harness data. Hence, Build process assigns operations and tools, sorts wires and assigns the different helps. The output is an industrialized harness.
Launcher generates the manufacturing harness by worksite as well as the differential.
A set of independent modules provides added features
Wire preparation: creates production batches, assigns machines and printers, cuts cables/protections and prints labels.
Work instructions: designs templates and generates static instructions as well as interactive instructions (Apple, Android or Windows apps).
Test: assigns mating and interfaces, calculates functional lines, maps addresses and generates tester code.
Traceability: stores production traceability, validates harness production and provides after-delivery inspection.
Toolshop: manages tools, tools revisions and tools authorizations.
Workers and Skills: manages operators as well as skills and trainings.
