Applying Analysis Methods in your Harness Design Process



OEMs are constantly looking for ways to reduce the costs of their harness design process. This can be achieved by lowering the risk of electrical components faling earlier in the design process, which ultimately leads to reducing the risk of company liability on the one hand and increasing customer satisfaction on the other hand.

This workshop will show how problems can be uncovered and solved early in the Harness design process in order to address cost, risk and liability issues. The workshop includes a hands-on part where you get the chance to use Capital Analysis in short and easy to understand labs.

At the end of the day the technology will be used in a demonstration to assess the impact of introducing a 48V system into your vehicle architecture as well as replacing some copper conductors with aluminum.

The presentation sessions are approximately 1.5 hours in duration and the labs will take approximately 2 hours to complete followed by 30 minutes of demos.

Please note that this workshop has a hands-on part where you get to use Capital Analysis, so the number of seats is limited!

What You Will Learn

  • Understand the benefit of early verification.
  • Get illustrated which questions could be answered with different analysis methods
  • Learn how analysis tools could fit into your environment
  • Get knowledge on correct modeling of electrical device
  • Gain inspiration and knowledge by connecting with peers

About the Presenter
