This is the second in a 3-part mini-series of looking ahead to the new decade in the wiring harness industry and the systems interconnect design business. The first part was about technology initiative and this part focuses on business concepts which I believe will be important. These are my own opinions. Not snap decisions but as arrived at with some contemplation and a little research. They may … Read More

The differences in documentation standards for electrical design are as vast as the number of stars in the sky. No two are alike, no matter what the claims - there is always “something” different. If your company provides documentation to more than one customer then the problem is even greater. The problem is lies with the tools being used to create the drawings. Typically I see companies trying … Read More
Here’s to a New Year and a happy one with a capital H. And a Capital C and S wrapped around the H. A new decade and a new rash of predictions from pundits I notice from my holiday period reading. So I thought why not join in! Here is what I think it will look like to stay ahead of the competition, protect your customer relationships and have excellent service offerings over the next 10 years. It … Read More

What is EWIS? EWIS stands for Electrical Wiring Interconnection System which can be defined as at set of electrical connections and signals between devices and modules and all of their associated termination parts which are necessary for their installation. In other words, this defines the set of electrical diagrams and cable harnesses that are installed in an airplane or a helicopter that make all … Read More
Standards inject certainty into your working life. Last week I wrote about how the development of standards and the easiest pathway to adoption of them. Adherence to standards is an integral part of successful engineering. The most attractive standards: lack complexity - are easy to understand - clear and straightforward for a person like you turn out to be robust for the niche in which you operate - … Read More

Having standards to work to is normal. In the Aerospace and Automotive Electrical and Electronic design realm there is no shortage of specifications. Engineers work to a variety of standards. For example - specifications for conductor sizes and wire materials. Also drawing appearance standards which I referred to in a previous post about how potential users of Capital Harness Systems (Capital) vet available … Read More
Back in the day when I was a design engineer one of the more difficult things we had to keep track of were wire colors. Capital Harness Systems provides several mechanisms for automating this task. When designing electrical systems, mostly for automotive designs, the color of each individual wire is very important. The color provides visual feedback for the technicians as to what system the circuit … Read More
