This session presents the challenges facing the wire harness industry and explores how digitalization holds the key to overcoming these challenges.
The continually evolving automotive industry is facing multiple challenges owing to the demand for advanced features, the advent of ADAS & autonomous driving and the growing need for electrification. These mega trends directly impact and create the need for a highly sophisticated automotive E/E system, placing great emphasis on the wire harness.
Conventional wire harness design and manufacturing methods are starting to creak under the weight of these new challenges. Siloed domains, working with outdated legacy systems lead to an error-prone and incoherent data flow, thereby directly impacting quality and cost. The accelerating pace of program milestones also means that engineers have little time to optimize the manufacturing process, leading to a suboptimal process from the beginning.
Tackling such challenges whilst remaining profitable, calls for a complete business transformation. Watch now to learn about the growing need for digitalization in the harness industry and how Siemens’ advanced harness design and manufacturing engineering solutions help companies transform challenges into competitive advantages.
