Improving the Wire Harness Manufacturing Process
As airplanes modernize, traditional mechanical systems have given way to increasingly complex electrical systems. This has been accompanied by a commensurate increase in the number and complexity of wire bundles used to assemble these systems. Boeing has identified increasing the efficiency of producing these wire bundles as a key area of interest, and our SCOPE team was tasked with improving a subset of these manufacturing processes. The team designed and built a prototype production module to improve the processing of wire bundles.
