On-demand webinar: Wire / Harness Design Automation Basics II


This webinar follows our first webinar “Wire / Harness Design Automation Basics I” where we have seen the logical part of the design process. Now we will look at the physical part of the wire harness design process. Starting with the logical information from wiring diagram and topology design, we transfer the harness data to the mechanical engineering. There we do the routing of the harness in the original 3D-Environment. The next step in the design process is to convert the 3D harness into 2D and generate a scale 1:1 formboard. For those who have no data from E3.series available we will show how to create a formboard from scratch or using EXCEL files (bill of material and connection list). When the formboard is ready we will generate the information for manufacturing and service. At the end of the webinar you will see how changes in the project are identified, managed and documented.
