The PTC Creo Harness Manufacturing Extension (HMX) dramatically reduces the time spent generating manufacturing documentation from hours to minutes, accelerating time-to-market.
Many companies utilize electrical analysis tools to optimize the cost and weight of electrical harnesses, forcing the digital prototype to go through multiple iterations. However, the time to optimize a harness is limited due to the lead time required to finalize the harness design, manufacturing documentation, and complete production.
PTC Creo HMX dramatically reduces both the time to generate documentation and the user expertise required to develop standardized manufacturing documentation. At the touch of a button and at any stage of the design process, manufacturing documentation can be created, enabling more time to optimize design and allowing for greater flexibility when working with manufacturing partners.
Easily create manufacturing documentation to a pre-defined standard using an intuitive user interface
Easily accommodate late design changes with an optimized documentation process
Standardize documentation of manufacturing deliverables
Optimize manufacturing costs - Evaluate the manufacturing impact on different harness routing concepts - Create documentation earlier in the design process to obtain competitive cost estimates from multiple manufacturing shops
