Instructor: Geoff Lydon, E3.series Solutions Manager
Geoff Lydon is the E3.series solutions manager helping customers find effective answers to their design challenges. Geoff works with customers to review existing design issues and challenges to determine the best possible solution. Geoff loves to travel and experience other cultures and lifestyles and has an extensive “bucket list” of destinations he wants to visit.
Do customer requirements and options result in unlimited configurations of the same or similar product? Does your process allow customers to select from various options to “build” their desired product? Would a design that includes all variations and options help your design and delivery process, like buying a car? For instance, consider the MINI’s; every MINI is different and built to your specifications! They may look the same, but with all the available options combinations, it’s possible that no two may be alike.
Now consider a project that includes all the possible configurations of a product. Imagine clicking a few buttons to define a ready-to-build configuration for a customer completely with the option to create configuration-specific documentation. The variants and options feature in E3.series have come a long way to provide flexible control schematics, panel layouts, harness designs, BOMs, and other reports.
In this class, you will learn to assign design elements to configurations and control schematic variation, voltage requirements, component suppliers, termination requirements, wiring requirements, panel sizing and layout, and much more. The class will also detail using Boolean operations and the inclusive and exclusive function to enable to configure option combinations.
