IESF: Electrical System Design & Harnessing

Learn more about your fellow customers success and the latest innovations for Electrical Distribution Systems Design & Wire Harness Engineering at IESF Europe 2014.

This years’ event has a focus on tools and practices to create high quality processes and avoid the costs of product recalls. Highlights include a dedicated breakout track that shares customer experience, tools that enhance quality and productivity, exchange with suppliers and the roadmap that Capital is following to enhance the tools even further.

Featured Electrical System Design & Harnessing Events

Maximize Design Quality with Connected Engineering Thursday, October 23, 11:40 AM

Technical Session As development cycles compress and the economic damage of product recalls mounts, attention is firmly focused on design quality. Today, industry leaders are embracing Systems Engineering to drive design quality. One key systems engineering principle is seamless and managed data integration: "digital continuity". Leading OEMs use a mix of best in class tools, but with an unswerving commitment to total communication. This session describes the latest integration technologies delivered by Mentor's Capital tools for electrical systems design, covering subjects ranging from requirements linking to resource library synchronization.

Every Engineer is a Quality Engineer Thursday, October 23, 2:00 PM

Technical Session Correct by construction design processes can be dramatically enhanced using simulation techniques, especially early in the design process. But simulation is too often the preserve of specialist staff, who may work disconnected from day-to-day design updates. This session highlights simulation and analysis tools that can be used by every electrical engineer, addressing topics ranging from functional verification to component sizing to failure modes & effects analysis. Furthermore, valuable results can be obtained with the simplest of models; and the models themselves can mature as the organization's use of simulation matures.

Technical Session
  • Enhancing Manufacturing Quality through Digital Continuity
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION The concept of digital continuity continues into the harness manufacturing environment. The validation of manufacturing options and comparison of costs ensures smart business decisions and avoids manufacturing capacity challenges. Leading customers have realized this and leverage connections to and from business systems to deploy valid manufacturing processes. This session supports the deployment of Capital capabilities across a modern shop floor environment to bring new opportunities for rich digital documentation maintaining the quality and efficiency of manufacturing operations.

  • Every Engineer is a Cost Engineer
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Modern platforms support hundreds of end-customer features across thousands of configurations, and suffer high rates of design change. This creates an overwhelming design challenge that is highly error prone and impossible to optimize for minimum cost. A change of paradigm is needed.

    This session shows how synthesis technology can be applied to vehicle electrical system design, delivering detailed designs that are known to be correct. The process is rapid, and can be combined with dynamic metrics to guide engineers towards optimized solutions.

  • Managing Complex Design Change
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Constant design change is a key factor in electrical systems & wire harness engineering: unless executed properly change can result in large engineering and manufacturing costs, and potentially serious product liability exposure.

    This session tracks a typical cross domain design change. We show how the change itself can be visualized and life-cycled, data flows controlled, verification undertaken, cost impacts assessed, and updated documentation created. Complex subjects such as out-of-sequence changes and robust communication between OEMs and suppliers are covered.
