critical but but often least recognized component of a system

Very interesting solution to the challenging of wiring with some good options. As a test engineer, I had a deep appreciation for one of our technicians that had gained a reputation as being able to neatly organize wiring in the test sets we were building. It is a little thought about yet extremely important task. I remember at one place i worked (out of business now), they had fiber optic cables running across the floor and chairs and scope carts with wheels - I remember cringing the first time I went down to the lab. Wiring is very important and indeed challenging - almost as much art as science. Working in the test equipment group, we were building in-house test sets which may not sound difficult to maintain since it is designed and built in-house and used in-house and typically each test set is unique - but people come and go and years pass and then it's "hey - let's modify this test set or upgrade that test set" and consistent and understandable wiring schemes make the task much easier. And yes - those adhesives mounts are tempting because they are quick and easy but very annoying when the adhesive degrades to the point of no longer holding...

Cable management is indeed a facet that can make or break large networks but so is cable labeling. 

Solidworks Electrical can also let you simulate cable layouts virtually. Check into that...

@greg: Any idea about the thickness of the cable ? Also how secure is it ?

Push-On Cable Tie Mount

Really like the push-on cable tie mount that has to be unscrewed to remove.  Quick way to install in a manufacturing environment, but secure enough in the field to retain the cables.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
