Wire Harness

Wire Harness

Wire hardness is the 3rd heaviest element in the car, weighing ~60kg/130lb with total length of 3-5km/2-3miles

The only manual assembly line, including quality assurance & testing

Specialized assembly by hand, on real-size pin boards, each representing a specific car modal, with thousands of part variants & combinations

Roughly 2,000 expert workers are needed to assemble harnesses for 1,000 vehicles over a 24-hour

Reduction of wire harness complexity will lead to significant savings across the board:
Labor, Logistics, Time, Human Errors
