UL Solutions’ on-demand webinar showcases how CableBuilder and CableMES can help cable and wire manufactures verify and validate designs and outputs throughout the cable design process.

The on-demand webinar covers the following topics:
  • Part 1 – High-level overview of CableBuilder and how it can support your design control
  • Part 2 – How CableMES can support design control
  • Part 3 – Q&A

Part 1 – High-level overview of CableBuilder and how it can support your design control, presented by Chris Huntly

01:22 – What we mean by “design control”
02:00 – Typical elements in design control: Input, output, specification and validation
02:59 – CableBuilder modules
04:48 – Key features of CableBuilder
07:44 – Example of a multi-plant environment setup
08:47 – How CableBuilder can help with the design control process: Documentation and retention of records
10:40 – CableBuilder demonstration
13:46 – Avoiding human error
18:07 – CableBuilder demonstration
23:08 – User control
26:32 – Design verification against specification
28:07 – CableBuilder demonstration
32:38 – Design validation
34:10 – Design change and version control
35:03 – CableBuilder demonstration

Part 2 – How CableMES can support design control, presented by Daniel Sanderson

39:36 – Design validation in CableMES
39:45 – Meeting the required specifications
40:21 – Customization
40:29 – Attributes imported from CableBuilder into CableMES
40:40 – Quality parameters, alarms and quarantined reels
41:56 – CableMES demonstration
43:30 – CableMES key features

Part 3 – Q&A, presented by Chris Huntly and Daniel Sanderson

44:50 – Can CableBuilder determine the diameter under the jacket and the cable outer diameter (OD)?
45:38 – Is CableBuilder able to see the breakdown of all components within the design of a product? If enterprise resource planning (ERP) only has a single-layer bill of materials (BOM), how does CableBuilder give ERP the information to create all the BOM layers?
46:58 – Can you record duplicate test measurements on the same reel in CableMES?
47:23 – Can CableMES capture tests from extrusion machines?
47:41 – Is there a limit to the number of documents that can be added to a design in CableBuilder?
47:59 – How do you distinguish between industrialized and trial designs in CableBuilder?
49:20 – Can CableMES detect under-lengths manufactured?
49:54 – Can CableMES combine multiple orders?
50:27 – How long does CableMES keep test records?
51:05 – Can CableBuilder generate a smart part number based on wire specification, metal type, insulations and other characteristics of the wire so that the cable part numbers are all in a similar structure for quick understanding?
52:02 – How does CableBuilder manage the design of data cables where the thickness insulations depend on final impedance and different pair lay lengths?
53:07 – Is there a native connector between Sage X3 Version 11 and CableBuilder?
