#WireHarnessManufactures

@ OasisSales is where Wire Harness Manufacturing + the digital enterprise meets tomorrow

Increases in wire harness complexity demand powerful tools

Wire Harness Manufacturing should not be done in isolation. 

 

 
 
 

Why Digitalize a Wire Harness?

Our Capital Solution is a unique, model based software solution for wire harness operations who want to boost competitiveness & profitability. Developed by industry experts in one of the world’s largest companies, it creates a digitalized “design through manufacturing engineering” flow with powerful automation, simulation and integration. Capital will transform a company’s engineering prowess & manufacturing efficiency.

k

Reduce the cost of 1st time quality

Electrical systems are very complicated. Without digitalization Simulation, verification and traceability is difficult.

 

Create cheaper, more efficient, functional products

Harness manufacturing is a complex process. Without digitalization optimization for cost, weight, space,and other targets cannot be achieved.

g

Reduce development costs and cycle times

Design change is constant.  Without digitalization design changes are difficult to execute, and accurately pass through to manufacturing and documentation.

 

Capture intellectual property currently stored as tribal knowledge

Creative engineers want to be liberated from mundane tasks.  Without digitalization assets cannot easily be re-used or re-purposed. Corporate IP cannot be leveraged.

Digitalization in action

This is a truely connected solution for Design Engineering, Product Engineering, Formboard, Manufacturing, Sub-Assemblies, BOM & Costing, Line Balancing and Work Instructions.

  • Design Error Reduction 50% 50%
  • Quote-to-production cycle time reduction 30% 30%

Oasis offers a true model-based portfolio that is built on 3 technology principles:

These principles are strong differentiators – Data Coherency, Built to Integrate & Advanced Automation:

>>No competitive portfolio has comparable depth of capability.

Functionality examples leveraging these principles include:

  • Electrical simulation & functional verification.
  • Generative wiring design & configuration optimization.
  • Manufacturing SBOP, costing & operator instructions generation.
  • Documentation generation.
  • Traceability & impact analysis.

True model-based enterprise

Electrical design optimization, verification, manufacture, documentation, and maintenance is now only feasible using sophisticated methods.  Model based tools deliver substantial automation.  Errors and inefficiencies are avoided, and engineers freed for creative problem solving.

Functionality examples leveraging these principles include:

  • Automate difficult or repetitive tasks.
  • Simulate, verify, or optimize designs and manufacturing processes.
  • Efficiently meet compliance mandates.
  • Re-use or re-purpose assets while protecting IP.
  • Improve after sales operations.
  • Foster engineering innovation.

Wire harness product & manufacturing engineering solutions

The complexity and product variation of electrical distribution systems cannot be managed by human beings alone. Sophisticated software solutions are indispensable.

Model based tools deliver substantial automation avoiding engineering errors & allowing engineers to innovate instead of performing mundane tasks.

DESIGN & PRODUCE:

Capital ModularXC

Capital ModularXC enables harness engineers to create fully detailed, validated and manufacturing-ready harness designs and modular sub-assemblies.

Buildable harness variants (including diagrams and BOMs) are automatically generated, based on user defined choices for decomposition – Composite-Derivative decomposition, or Modular decomposition. Modular decomposition offers both functional module decomposition, for example “tail lamps”, and production module decomposition, for example “ECU connector sub-assembly”. Conceived from the ground up to be highly configurable, Capital ModularXC allows companies to tailor the tool to meet their precise needs, both in terms of graphical outputs and they way designs are created and validated.

Functional assignation algorithms identify modules based on codes assigned to the wires, then automatically identify and configure all related components – connectors, protections, clips, etc – to complete the definition of each module. Production assignation algorithms identify and configure the set of manufacturing sub-assembly modules, based on user-defined best-practice rules and constraints to increase manufacturing efficiencies and reduce costs.

PRODUCE: Formboard XC

Capital FormboardXC extends Capital HarnessXC and Capital ModularXC functionality to provide full-scale diagram capabilities linked to the baseline HarnessXC or ModularXC drawings – changes made in one diagram are automatically updated in the other diagram eliminating a common source of error.

Fixtures and other manufacturing elements can be placed interactively, or automatically using custom design rules, ensuring best-practice manufacturing engineering. Graphical style templates speed the design process by supporting the concurrent design of diagrams with different visual content – the engineer defines the bundle layout, connectors & wiring and the style template facility automatically generates the required graphical annotation entities – symbols, text, fonts, auto-colored insertion-views, etc.

PRODUCE: Harness TVM

Capital Harness TVM enables costing & process planning engineers to rapidly and accurately synthesize harness build processes & tasks, costs, manufacturing times, and more, from a harness design created by Capital HarnessXC, Capital ModularXC, or VeSys 2.0 Harness.

Unlike traditional approaches that rely on approximation, labor-intensive & detailed expert analysis, proprietary hard-coded applications, and slow error-prone processes, Capital Harness TVM provides a formal framework and process for the rapid generation of accurate time and labor costing.

Capital Harness TVM is designed to support both OEMs and Harness Suppliers with specific functionality designed to help the individual engineering tasks: OEM cost controllers, OEM architects and designers, Supplier sales/quotation engineers, Supplier industrial engineers, and Supplier value engineers.

PRODUCE: Workbooks

Capital Workbooks uses rules to automatically generate work instructions and visual aids for harness assembly operators. It removes work instructions creation from the critical path for introducing new or changed harness designs, thus eliminating errors and reducing costs.

Symbol Libraries
Our Symbol Libraries for your selected connectors and terminals are created from the manufacturer’s drawings to insure accuracy. A library of industry standard electrical and drafting symbols is also provided. Sample Border Symbol templates with property value placeholders are provided to automate the addition of project, design, and diagram specific information.
Component Library
Based on your requirements, we will provide a QuickStart custom library of component parts (i.e. wires, connectors, terminals, boots, insulation, clips, etc.) that can be used in designs created in Capital® and VeSys® design tools. The library will contain the wire and multicore cable that you specify. Connectors are configured to include typically used mandatory and optional “Housing” parts such as terminals, cavity plugs, boots, seals, and mounting hardware. Cavity names, cavity attributes and mating information is also provided. The following library design features and default specifications are used.

A QuickStart custom library of 100 existing connectors of your choice (together with some bonus content) which is usually a good start for a new customer and includes the time to select, package, test, transmit to you.   You can easily “grow” the library yourself from there with proper training.

Oasis maintains 3 master libraries.

  • Metric UOM – Automotive
  • Imperial UOM – Automotive
  • Imperial UOM – Mil-Aero

As of 1/1/2021 there are over 13,000 components in these libraries.
