The logical extension to CAO for the harness industry

The DiIT product PLS (Production and Logistics System) controls the final assembly of wire harnesses and the logistics with the end customer. Particularly in the production of customized cable harnesses (KSK) for the automotive industry, the strength of the PLS system comes into play. It receives the JIT / JIS calls of the OEMs, gives the relevant production orders to the cutting area and pre-assembly and finally controls the in-time assembly of the individual harness and its delivery to the customer.

“In the first release we will focus on the core functionality required by most customers,” says Franziskus Timmermann, Chief Technology Officer at DiIT AG. “Standardized interfaces to common ERP systems (especially SAP) will contribute to a rapid implementation and allow the necessary flexibility in the system design.” The close links with the CAO system ensures that the product manufacture is controlled across all areas and fully documented. Thus, the traceability of all components of a wire assembly is guaranteed. The consistent and integrated capture and archiving of feedback and measurement data ensures seamless quality assurance and quality recording

PLS is therefore the logical complement of CAO.

“With our systems, PPG (Production plan generation), CAO and PLS, we control and optimize the entire added value chain of our customers”, says Bernd Jost, Chief Operating Officer of the DiIT AG. “Our goal is to bring to market the first release of the new PLS already in 2017.”

DiIT at the WPE (Wiring Processing Technology Expo) in Milwaukee, USA http://www.diit.de/diit-at-the-wpe-wire-processing-technology-exposition-in-milwaukee/ http://www.diit.de/diit-at-the-wpe-wire-processing-technology-exposition-in-milwaukee/#comments Fri, 20 May 2016 11:32:05 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=9710 DiIT at the WPE (Wiring Processing Technology Expo) in Milwaukee, USA

The 15th annual Wiring Processing Technology Expo was held in Milwaukee on May 13 & 14, 2016.

DiIT presented its products CAO, PLS and the brand new product PPG.

As in the years past, the expo’s focus was on wire harness manufacturing and the turnout was excellent. It was attended by over 3000 well qualified visitors that included many decision makers from OEMs and various tier suppliers to the Automotive, Electrical and Electronics industries.

“We found a lot of interest”, says Bernd Jost, Chief Operating Officer at DiIT AG. “Digitalizing production to improve productivity and to ensure quality is on the agenda of many companies. Increasing complexity and cost pressure ask for a new approach. Production has to organize itself, using realtime digital information and cyberphysical systems. DiIT products enable our customers to meet these new requirements and to go ahead.”

At Productronica, DiIT presents its latest innovation – the software suite Wiring Harness MES http://www.diit.de/at-productronica-2015-diit-presents-its-latest-innovation-the-software-suite-wiring-harness-mes/ http://www.diit.de/at-productronica-2015-diit-presents-its-latest-innovation-the-software-suite-wiring-harness-mes/#comments Fri, 23 Oct 2015 07:07:53 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=9135 At this year’s Productronica, DiIT presents its latest innovation the software suite Wiring Harness MES. The complete integration of the DiIT software solutions CAO (Cutting Area Optimization), PPG (Production Plan Generation) and PLS (Production and Logistics Suite) in Wiring Harness MES, enables the optimization of the entire wire harness production process – from engineering over production to the point of logistics – in a single system. Wiring Harness MES is suitable both for customer-specific and batch production.

In addition, DiIT’s cutting area solution, CAO V12, provides a number of new and exciting features, such as extended material planning and dispatch functions, scanning handling units/serial numbers in material confirmation, new graphic extensions for OEE, tools usage, and downtimes reports and much more. The close cooperation of DiIT with a number of major machine manufacturers to mutually advance the integration of machines in CAO V12, is another great advantage for users of the system and has brought about a number of innovations and an improved process control. CAO V12 is modular and scalable and can be used also by small and mid-sized companies. Considerable savings as a result of improved quality, higher machine utilization and high adherence to schedules ensure an excellent return of investment.

The Productronica takes place from 10th – 13th November 2015 in Munich. Visit us on our booth, hall B2, stand 325.

SEBN from Wolfsburg focuses international on the full solution suite of DiIT http://www.diit.de/sebn-wolfsburg-focuses-international-full-solution-suite-diit/ http://www.diit.de/sebn-wolfsburg-focuses-international-full-solution-suite-diit/#comments Wed, 26 Nov 2014 10:29:11 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=5977 DiIT AG, the leading software company of manufacturing execution systems for wire harness production, provides his customer SEBN (Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze, Wolfsburg) with the full integrated software solution suite, which include the products PPG™ (Production Plan Generation), CAO™ (Cutting Area Optimization) and PLS™ (Production & Logistics Suite).

After the CAO™ was successful introduced for the wire harness machine control several years ago, in 2012 occurred the modularly extension of CAO™ to the manual pre-assembly area P2, followed by the enlargement of the existing group license agreement.

To implement the standardization of the KSK-process cost-efficiently, SEBN decides in 2014 on an extension of the existing group license agreement for the product PLS™. The decision also for PPG™, which is an automated connection tool between engineering and production, is a strategic solution enhancement and further automation-module to meet on the rising challenges within the OEM environment.

“Since years we successful apply CAO™ and PLS™ to our international production plants and thus were able to improve our processes significant, to increase the transparency and to enhance the cost structure of our company”, says Harald Eitner, General Manager IT (CIO) at Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze GmbH. “From a today´s point of view we could not pass on such a comprehensive solution. Based on the decision to focus on the full solution suite of DiIT and the systematic international rollout, we see a further important strategic step to meet to the challenges of Industry 4.0”.
