    Lobby all suppliers to make a standardized ILDA approved wiring scheme. Until then, no hope.

    You can reduce the huge bulky wire I see on your picture but at your own risk.
    Since some wire color coding to that DPSS module can be the same (if not you can skip this step)
    1. Get a multimeter with continuity on it.
    2. Scrape the wires where you want to cut it and scrape the other end where you will be cutting it as well (meaning remove the insulation from wires.
    3. Check which wire belong to which end
    4. mark each wire either clearly with its own color marker or a piece of tape of different colors (or write on a wrapped around piece of tape on the wire as long as you can make out which belongs to which).
    5. cut a section out of the wire
    6. Solder and heat shrink for both safety, strength and looks
    The DPSS units usually have a fair bit of wire with thick and tough insulation which takes up a lot of space

    Aside from that you are out of luck it's just a lot of wires.

    The black power wire can be shortened to the required length rather than folded back and forth and tie wrapped.

    As for the others, try some spiral wrapping to neaten then and hold them together.

    Its a bit of a hassle, however if you can find the correct molex crimp for the plugs you can shorten the cables by putting new crimps on. it saves a join and looks quite professional .
    The crimps are cheap. It just takes time to find the crimps (pins) for the plugs.
