Re-Engineering- Decentralized Architecture for Truck Harness Protection
SCOPE Improve protection of Wire Harnesses against damage from high current fault conditions. Reduce the complexity of wire harness routing with in the truck. Revisit the fuse capacities and locations of electrical centers. Re-engineer the schematics and harness drawings for prototyping & production
Plug-N-Play Wire Harness redesign- Value Engineering
SCOPE Redesign the electrical schematics to reduce the installation time. Modify existing harnesses to incorporate latest Model Year changes from the OEM. Reevaluate OEM tap points and simplify the installation process. Create documentation to assist after market and field service support.
Engineering Change Management – Chassis Frames
SCOPE Investigate requested changes from different sources customer, quality & manufacturing. Process custom orders (Engineer To Order) and validate the designs accordingly. Create design package- manufacturing drawings and Bills of Materials (BOM’s) Release the Engineering changes to manufacturing through PLM & ERP
Engineer To Order (ETO) – Service Bodies
SCOPE Process engineer to order (ETO) and verify the order options. Create general assembly GA along with customer approval drawing. Complete the custom design options & features for manufacturing. Validate the design using FEA (Ansys).
Electrical Wire Harness & Schematics Design for Parcel Delivery Vans/Trucks
SCOPE Designing harnesses based on the payloads and create electrical schematics with 3D. Component selection like connectors, fuses, lights, wire gauges and relays. OEM Chassis interface connections with Make Year Model changes. Create harness drawings, schematics including 3D routing for mass production
Electrical Components Library- Database Migration & Management
SCOPE Convert legacy electrical database information to the new standards. Create and establish library for electrical components and connectors. Develop circuit numbering systems and best practices for creating harnesses. Improve BOM management by driving them through Engineering.
Off Road Vehicle Seat Design
Scope: Design a new Seat with slider and locking mechanisms for a new platform Require multiple concepts to choose from. There is a price target to achieve/maintain within. Short time frame to turn around the project from concept to prototype.
