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 - Analysis at your Fingertips Thursday, October 23, 2:00 PM

Technical Session Correct by construction design processes ensure an engineer’s intent is correctly and consistently propagated throughout the life-cycle of a product. However dramatic improvements to quality can be gained through automated analysis of those designs, especially early in the process. The complexity of simulation has historically ensured this work has been the preserve of specialist staff, disconnected from the design process and overwhelmed by the volume of work. This session presents automated analysis tools liberating engineers to focus on issues found and simulation specialists on enabling the enterprise with models to scale with need and the maturity of data.

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 - Make Better Decisions with Real-time Metrics
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Every engineer is a born optimizer, motivated to create elegant solutions to meet all of the requirements and constraints of a modern platform. However, they can only optimize what they can measure, and understanding the impact of a change on a platform with hundreds of end customer features across thousands of configurations is impossible with traditional engineering tools.

    This session shows how synthesis technology, coupled with dynamic metrics, can be easily mined, compared, and configured to empowers engineers with greater insight into the total design. Armed with this information they can make better decisions to produce better, more optimized designs.

  • 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.
