E³.series Testimonials

A collection of testimonials from satisfied E³.series customers

Article from www.zuken.com

“We chose E³.series because it was best able to meet our design requirements. As our needs have evolved, so has E³.series.
With each new version, Zuken gives us the functionality we need for higher productivity and quality.”
– Sami Kivioja, Engineering Manager, ABB Process Automation

“Using a configurator with E³.series means we can do our work not just much faster but with fewer mistakes too.”
–  Jens Fricke, Wiring Diagrams Group Manager, Alstom


“The efficient 3D interface between E³.series and CATIA will greatly boost productivity in calculating the production lengths of cables.”
– Klaus Heimke, Manager for New Technologies and E-Business, Alstom

“The intelligence contained in the database of E³.series has helped reduce design time to about one-third of the time required in the past. These time savings have made it possible for us to bid on more complex systems without concern that the electrical design could not be completed within the project deadline.
With the database keeping track of the components and signals, it’s also more difficult to make a mistake which makes it easier to assemble and troubleshoot the system.”
– Joe Geisinger, Chief Technology Officer, ARM Automation

“We have a very sophisticated and all-encompassing system with an advanced control system.
With E³.series I am in control of this complexity and it has allowed me to create designs logically. It is the ultimate way to take what I have in my head and put it on paper. When working with a harness supplier, I can point out where things are wrong.
It is fantastic to have the knowledge that E³.series can do everything I want. In the same way that our vehicles are highly customizable, so is the functionality within E³.series that allows us to realize this.”

“The detailed schematic reduces the time we spend answering customer questions as a result of the quality of documentation, which has allowed us to reduce costs associated with customer support. We also anticipate reduced downtime involved in repairs due to the superior quality of the schematics.”
– Graeme Shields, Design Manager, Emergency One


“Once E³.series is deployed throughout Fiat, all the Company databases can be rationalized allowing Fiat to realize the “data-centric process” which is a key-objective for Fiat”

“Our objective three years ago was to reduce the electrical architecture design cycle for a new car by 20%, requiring no extra resources, just improved process and product development integration. E³.Wiring Diagram Generator is proving to be instrumental in making this possible.”

“The important first step that Fiat has taken in partnership with Zuken will result in a complete automation of the low-value processes (eg. scm-drafting) involved in the full harnessing of a complete-car design.”
– Paolo Puiatti, Power and Signal Distribution Manager, FIAT Group Automobiles

“The days of non-intelligent drawing packages are over. We need better tools that can offer design reuse, bring about standardization, and can still deliver flexibility – like E³.series.
We also need partners like Zuken who are willing to listen, learn, communicate and be proactive in regards to meeting our needs.”
– Norman MacDonald, UK Engineering Director, Honeywell

“With motorsport one of the key things is flexibility and being able to do things quickly, which is why we chose E³.series. We are also looking forward to saving lots of time with the automatic checking features – no more poring over printouts checking wire connections!”
– Mark Aitken, Design Engineer, M-Sport

“The new E³.series tools we’ve adopted have improved the way we work and shortened the time it takes to make a modification to cable harnesses. It’s also increased our confidence that it’s 100% correct.”

– Carl Worthington, Principal Electrical Engineer, Mecalac

“In addition to showing their technical superiority during the search, Zuken’s business structure will support our own internal efforts to become one Terex.”
– Dr. Suresh Natarajan, Global Director, Electrical Systems, Mecalac  (formerly the Terex Corporation)

“The most important argument in favor of E³.series is its strength in the area of options and variants. Up to 80% of all our variants can now be represented in the feature tree of one single project.”

“Increased effort in design enables cheaper and faster production. Also, rework because of overpopulated terminals or excessive bundle sizes has decreased significantly.”
– Markus Husner, Head of Control Systems Technology, Müller Martini Electronic AG

“Through using E³.series we have realised immense operational efficiencies inhouse and saved costs, plus we have also helped our customers be more efficient and competitive in their markets.”
– Markus Hanefeld, Sales Manager, Pantec Automation

“We looked for a tool to give an end-to-end design path from schematic capture to physical design. One of the reasons E³.series stood out is its inbuilt electrical intelligence. This will help us reduce rework and add digital prototyping into our engineering design process to satisfy challenging time-to-market and quality demands.
Piaggio Group previously used a generic rather than wiring harness-dedicated 2D design tool for cabling design, but it was unable to meet stringent new cost effectiveness, global parts unification and time efficiency targets. We selected E³.series after benchmarking several CAD tools.”
– Luigi Baracchino, Electrical Engineering Manager, Piaggio

“For a long time we searched for software that could provide automatic drawing generation.
E³.series is very efficient software and we are now able to design complex diagrams much quicker than before. We are also very pleased with the technical support we receive.”
– Tanongchai S., Engineering Supervisor, Schneider Electric Thailand

“We achieved substantial productivity gains because engineers had a very clear picture of what one another were doing, and because of the automated checks performed by the software.”
– John Harman, Electrical Engineer, Stone Aerospace

“Using E³.series will give us the ability to provide much more engineering design work for our customers. There’s also the added value in terms of manufacturing having access to a digital database of components that we can pull up on the shop floor.
Overall E³.series will give us the platform for closer collaboration with our customers and reduce the time for providing new designs or design changes, in turn reducing lead times and costs.”
– Steve Clarke, Managing Director, Teepee Electrical

“Since we started using E³.series almost two years ago we have reduced our design cycle by almost 40%, compared with our previous practice of wire harness design using non-automated tools.”
– M. Amardeepkumar, R&D Manager, TVS Motors

“The engineering phase is decisive for the success and efficiency of control cabinet production. An intelligent coordination of digital product data and networked engineering tools provides a solid basis for efficient assembly.”
– Dr. Bernhard Gorny, Head of Product Lifecycle Data Management, Weidmüller

“We realized that to continue to serve our global markets with leading-edge products, we needed to take our mechanical, electrical and software engineering processes to the next level.
By integrating domain-specific development processes into an end-to-end mechatronic engineering environment, we will be able to offer our customers cost-efficient and customized solutions that cut their engineering lead time and overheads.”
– Theodor Determann, Managing Director, Windmöller & Hölscher
