PCB Design and Wire Harnessing

wire harness

This is a complicated process that involves getting the right wires to be associated with the right cables or wires. This creates a path to the motherboard or PCB board. The engineering of the electro-mechanical wire harness is an intricate process that requires a seasoned Electrical Engineering Services expert to do it right consistently.

Start with the foundation

Think of a computer as a house. You start with the foundation. If you build the foundation right, the rest will fall into place. All parts will work well together if you put first things first. But how do you know what constitutes a good working prototype? Use the following checklist as a guide.

1. Check your quality of parts. Starting with quality parts is always the priority. If you do not have the best parts, it is hard to know if your machines will be functioning at peak performance. You may be able to settle for a slightly cheaper component if it can be shown that it will be as efficient as others. But you need a professional design expert to tell you how it will perform over the long term. Defective parts can end up costing a company a fortune.

2. Do quality control to make sure all parts are in working order. Quality control is the step you must take to make sure your quality is up to the standards it should be. You may have a quality control department in your place of business. But unless they are seasoned engineers, how will you know if they miss something important? Always start with having quality engineers with a high skill level who are eagle eyes about technology.

3. Test how the parts work with specific systems and test the electro-mechanical wire harness. This intricate process involves making sure the mechanical wire harness is in place correctly and that it has all working parts. You do not want to install this critical part until you are sure you know what you are doing. Remember that creating technologies with these minute working parts is a delicate process and it requires a steady hand and a head full of engineering knowledge and expertise.

4. Make sure your unit passes safety standards for consumer safety. Do you understand all of the requirements for consumer safety? The Consumer Product Safety Commission is the federal organization that is responsible for seeing to it that standards are followed that do not risk the safety and well-being of consumers. This takes a skilled mechanical engineer to make sure it is done correctly.

5. Decide how many units you will need and what changes you expect to have to make. Other decisions involve how much you will mass produce your product to the market. You have to keep in mind the cost of production as well as how much you can expect in your profit margin. An engineering team is not the same as an accounting team, but they do have a general sense of production costs and may be able to help you as you make these decisions.
