The world is seeing technology advance at exponential rates. Products and devices are now more integrated than ever with intelligent electronic systems. This has presented challenges to engineering teams requiring them to combine both electrical and mechanical engineering disciplines. It becomes more apparent when designs incorporate electronic components, PCBs, bundles of wires, and wire harnesses.
The Challenges of Harness and Wire Design
Products and devices are becoming more portable in an effort to be competitive and reduce the overall waste footprint. Harness design has also become a large part of the design process and understanding things like space constraints, wire routes, and connector pin outs becomes an imperative part of the design process. Unfortunately, it also typically becomes the most manual part. Creating these deliverables for harness manufacturing is critical to meet project deadlines and go to market before competitors.
