WHMA Wired-In Sept/Oct 2021

Creating an Intelligent Harness Drawing to Automate the Manufacturing Process Webinar

WHMA supplier member, Zuken USA , is presenting this quarter’s webinar on September 8th at 1pm CST. This webinar is intended for harness engineers, electrical engineers, harness designers, assembly and manufacturing technicians, harness production managers, quality assurance, and engineering managers.

Presenting this webinar is Sanu Warrier, Technical Marketing Manager of Zuken USA, Inc. Sanu helps customers find effective solutions to their design challenges. His work focuses on eliminating inefficiencies, improving design processes, and reducing costs to improve competitive advantages.

Sanu will take us through a riveting 45 minute presentation and 15 minute Q & A. This webinar will discuss what is the most essential part of the harness manufacturing process? The answer differs by the role of the person answering the question. There are many steps to get from concept to a complete manufactured harness. Each step in the process depends on the previous step to move forward. The idea of design-for-manufacturing is to be aware of manufacturing and assembly challenges during the design process. Does a simple harness drawing with lines, circles, and pictures do that? No, it does not. Creating a harness design with details for driving manufacturing and assembly automation is essential for success.

This webinar will outline the basics of creating an intelligent harness design to generate accurate quotes, drive smart quality checks and create 1:1 scale manufacturing drawings. The live demonstration will include utilizing the same harness data to drive automated manufacturing tools for labeling, testing, cutting, processing, and visualizing wires. We will introduce and outline the innovative capabilities of using dedicated harness design tools like Harness Builder for E3.series to augment harness manufacturing.

What you will learn during this webinar:

  • How to quickly create accurate quotes and designs from excel data
  • How to effectively capture manufacturing information in the harness drawing
  • How to use intelligent library parts to improve accuracy and reduce design time
  • How to automate manual processes to reduce time and errors.
  • How to drive next-generation manufacturing machines
  • How to improve the harness assembly process using the latest automation technologies

We look forward to seeing you on the webinar on September 8th at 1 pm CST. You can register at or
