How the digital twin is transforming classic aerospace harness production preparation methods

By Sarah Bartash

Modern aerospace harness production and manufacturing artifacts need your attention

Modern aerospace harness production manufacturers must constantly balance quality, delivery and cost targets while managing complexity and reducing risk. Traditional harness manufacturing methods rely heavily on manual processes. Classical MCAD (mechanical computer-aided design) drawing methods have designers working in isolation from harness data which makes the creation process long and prone to many errors. 

An element often underestimated in creating an efficient manufacturing process is a correctly designed formboard. Its proper design enables operators to work productively and manufacture a harness right the first time.
