Success Story

Computation of a set of cost-optimized wire harnesses for a renowned car manufacturer

The input for our computation comprised:

  • a model of the products,
  • a model of the wire harnesses,
  • a model of the costs of the wire harnesses and
  • an estimate of the expected sales for each car configuration relevant to the wire harnesses.


Based on the logical representation of the products, the wire harnesses, the costs and the expected sales, our software v.control computed a set of cost-optimized wire harnesses, i.e. the optimality can be proven mathematically. Our customer can now use our software solution to solve all their optimization problems regarding wire harnesses.

Our software significantly reduced the total cost of the wire harnesses with regard to expected car sales: v.control reduced the cost by 25 percent compared to the previously used method.
