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”.
