The DiIT AG, the leading software solution provider of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) within the wiring harness industry, wins TTE International headquartered in Tunisia in the segment of small and medium-sized enterprises.

TTE International deploys the solution of CAO (cutting area optimization) at its plant in Tunisia and thus controls the production of approximately 20 cutting machines. In addition, the CAO software is integrated into the manual production steps, as well as in the KANBAN system. “The new partnership between DiIT and TTE International is the optimal basis to support our future growth,” says Issam Zairi, Director Operational Excellence of TTE International.

“This success makes us particularly happy. So far, mainly the large tier 1 automotive suppliers are using our systems”, says Olaf Hermann, Sales Director of DiIT AG. “The decision of TTE shows that even medium-sized and small enterprises can optimize their production with our software. We will further develop this market in the future.”

PPG 4.0 is now available http://www.diit.de/ppg-4-0-now-available/ http://www.diit.de/ppg-4-0-now-available/#comments Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:52:47 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=9779 PPG 4.0 is now available

 

Can you imagine that

– you have a system, that generates your production documents automatically?
– this also works in a JIT-controlled production process for customer specific wire harnesses?
– you have a system, that reduces time and effort for work preparation dramatically?
– you have a system, that improves quality, because it avoids typical manual errors?

That’s what PPG 4.0 can do for you!

 

PPG 4.0 – Import – Generate – Deliver

PPG imports your production drawings. We use the KBL format, the industry standard of the VDA or custom formats. The heart of PPG, the production module engine generates rule-based production modules and production documents.

With a set of principles that we have created together with some industry experts, PPG generates the common cutting modules and installation modules. The rules can be flexibly adapted to their needs to generate their specific production modules.

PPG takes into account various production methods (for example, production of single seats or belts, etc.) and production variants for each production module. Many details complete the functionality and make PPG a powerful tool for your Wire Harness Engineering.

Import – Generate – Deliver. It’s that easy.

 

PPG 4.0 –Part of the DiIT Wiring Harness MES Suite

PPG is an integrated part of the DiIT Wiring Harness MES Suite. Production documents, generated in PPG are used by CAO and PLS to control and optimize production in the cutting area, the preassembly zone and the final assembly.

We look forward to show you the performance of PPG in a live demonstration.

DiIT expands into Mexico http://www.diit.de/diit-expands-into-mexico/ http://www.diit.de/diit-expands-into-mexico/#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2016 10:00:31 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=9755 DiIT expands into Mexico

DiIT today announces its establishment of a direct presence in Mexico. Almost all major OEM supplier of wire harnesses deploy DiIT products to manage their production processes. The American market is supplied almost exclusively from plants in Mexico. DiIT AG therefore decided to establish a direct presence in Mexico. From September on DiIT will be represented in Torreon, Central Mexico.

“Our systems are deployed at the production plants. To offer our customers the required service we must be present locally,” says Bernd Jost, COO at DiIT AG. “In the first step, we focus on the development of resources to provide technical support to local customers. We rely on employees who already know the wire harness industry and train them intensively in working with our products CAO and PLS. Thus they are able to supervise the systems, to advice customers and provide training”.

DiIT develops a PLS successor system http://www.diit.de/diit-develops-a-pls-successor-system/ http://www.diit.de/diit-develops-a-pls-successor-system/#comments Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:52:30 +0000 http://www.diit.de/?p=9712 DiIT develops a PLS successor system
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.”

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.
