YAZAKI continues strategic partnership with DiIT

Krailling, October 19, 2017 – Automotive supplier YAZAKI has raised its strategic partnership with DiIT, the market leader in wire harness production, to a new level. The new Version 12 of the DiIT solution 4Wire CAO – Cutting and Assembly Optimization – is replacing the previous system in all 24 plants of the YAZAKI Europe Group.

Over the next two years DiIT AG, the leading software vendor of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for wire harness production will equip all 24 plants of the YAZAKI Europe Group with the latest Version 12 of its core product, 4Wire CAO, with the first roll-out already installed in the recently opened plant in Serbia.

4Wire CAO ensures the optimization of the cutting area and component manufacture production areas and increases their efficiency, quality and traceability. The tier-1 wiring harness supplier, YAZAKI, has also implemented an additional solution from the 4Wire product range, namely 4Wire PLS, that in the last step supports customized production and JIT/JIS dispatch control. DiIT is also offering 4Wire PPG which automatically generates the relevant production documentation at the interface between engineering and production.

“We have relied on the products of our strategic partner DiIT for well over a decade” explains Andreas Engels, Head of IT Europe at YAZAKI. “In order to keep pace with state-of-the-art technology and ensure a standardized, integrated solution with full transparency and traceability, we have had to raise the current structures and systems in our plants with the help of CAO V12 to a new level.”

4Wire CAO V12 was first installed in the recently opened plant in Serbia.

“YAZAKI is one of our longest-standing customers. In the new plant we were able to prove the performance of both DiIT software and our project support” says Bernd Jost, Managing Director at DiIT AG. “After this great success we are now looking forward to the scheduled changeover in the remaining 23 YAZAKI plants in Europe.”
