IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies

It took the fine folk at IPC forever and a week to produce A-620. So, we continue to use NASA-STD-8739.4, Crimping, Interconnecting Cables, Harnesses, And Wiring that has been available on the net for years.

In response to your question, 8739.4 dodges a direct answer and refers to the manufacturer's recommendations.
