I hope that you will allow me to be part of your team because I am confident that I have the skills and knowledge in engineering support. Kindly consider this proposal and contact me through nguyentainu@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your time.


WIRE HARNESS DRAFTING | WHERE TO START


Companies and subcontractors I supported in the San Francisco Bay Area are innovative companies where we build a small batch of prototype cables for the new products. Aim with the proper training in college as a mechanical drafter, I was able to hop on their wagons and adapted to cable harness assembly drafting and became good at it since.

Typically each customer has a specification that we have to follow. It includes all of the information about the wire harness. Some of that information includes wiring harness design, Bill of Materials, and other necessary guidelines and requirements. Whether the customer has CAD drawing ready to build, or a handwritten sketch, I can use the company resources to draft the original idea for the customer's final successful product.

DRAWING INTERPRETATION AND PRODUCT BUILD


Interprets electrical and mechanical schematics and builds products.

Requirements:

Wire Harness BOM

– • Customer drawings, BOMs, Instructions.

– • If a customer drawing is not available then a set of customer’s instructions will be used to create a schematic and an assembly drawing.

– • A schematic will be created based on the customer’s wire connection diagram. Alternatively, a colors code excel table can be used to build the wire harness.

– • Using available 2D/3D models from suppliers based on the customer’s BOM, an assembly drawing is created to assist the assembler.

Changes any design changes or mistakes.

Procedure:

– • Review The Engineering Change Request.

– • Correct the drawing and BOM based on the engineer’s markup.

– • Create an ECO with the reason for the changes and submit it for review and approval.

Communicates technical changes and instructions to less skilled production operators and design engineers.

Simple method:

– • Notify the engineer/personnel who is involved in the project and hand-on assist the production worker with the new build.

Builds higher-end product solutions as requested by management.

Efficient way:

– • Create a BOM with all needed wires, components, and connectors. Based on provided wire connection list rough draft an assembly drawing. Build a prototype, test, make changes, record, and FAI to approve for NPI.
