Electrical Designer – ELD – Extension

Electrical Designer is an extension to be used on top of a Mechanical role that covers the Physical Design of wire harness within the DMU of a product. It is part of the complete integrated Electrical process and has tight synchronization capabilities with the Systems Schematic Designer role and the Electrical Harness Manufacturing Engineer role.

The Electrical Designer role delivers a process-specific solution for designing physical wire harnesses. This solution is driven by logical specifications (schematics) and is integrated with harness manufacturing preparation. By delivering a realistic simulation for 3D wire harness packaging in an integrated environment, this powerful solution reduces design time and increases the overall quality of large-scale electrical systems. It also enriches the design through realistic deformation of flexible harnesses by taking into account environmental conditions like gravity as well as the physical non-linear behavior of the harness and its protections.

 

Description

An integrated 3D electrical development environment which enables the physical design of wire harness in the context of the Digital Mockup.

  • Synchronize electrical schematic to 3D design to ¬†improve electrical systems quality and consistency
  • Design and optimize electrical 3D harness bundles accurately in the context of the full product
  • Route 3D wires to obtain exact bundle diameters and wire/cable lengths
  • Reduce the need for costly physical prototypes and decrease design and manufacturing cost
