Training

Cimteq runs a number of training courses to help you implement and use CableBuilder to maximise your return on investment. However a key aspect of our training is the flexibility to integrate the needs and priorities specific to each of our customer’s requirements which is our key consideration when planning our training sessions.



You will be trained to set up the basic system components and enter your own basic data, such as machines, work-centres, raw materials, etc. You will also be instructed in how to use CableBuilder to design a cable.


The subjects covered are:

  • Setting up base data, including users, machines, work-centres, etc.
  • Finding designs using the search capabilities
  • Creating designs
  • Copying designs, and various design maintenance activities
  • Using change and version control
  • Performing mass changes using projects
  • Sending designs to the business system (if applicable)

The basic training course is designed to give a solid foundation in the fundamentals of using CableBuilder on a daily basis. Attendees are expected to have a basic knowledge of cable design and to be familiar with the use of a web browser and PC.

CableBuilder is an expert system. When you take it out of the box it does not have all the parameters that are specific to your company. During this advanced course you will be trained to tailor CableBuilder to your company’s specific requirements.


The subjects covered are:

  • Adding and changing production processes, such as insulation, taping, etc.
  • Adding and changing design and processing attributes to hold design data
  • Adding and changing formulas and tables to calculate various design and processing attributes
  • Maintaining cable modules for use with design wizards to enable quick design generation for more standard designs
  • Producing product datasheets and catalogues
  • Using the quotations module to provide customer quotations
  • Setting up and using the multilingual feature

Attendees of the advanced training course will be expected to have completed the basic training course and to be familiar with at least one programming language, or spreadsheet formulas.

CableBuilder is a J2EE architecture which means that there are several levels of application customisations that can be implemented. Examples of customisation are: producing reports that are business specific, and changing the standard CableBuilder screen formats. This course enables you to perform these activities yourselves.


The subjects covered are:

  • Presentation of CableBuilder’s system architecture
  • Introduction to CableBuilder’s database architecture
  • Introduction to HTML
  • What is XML and how is it used in CableBuilder?
  • How to transform XML to HTML using a stylesheet (XSL)

Attendees of this course are expected to have good knowledge of programming and a basic knowledge of HTML.
