Automated Generation of VIN Specific Service Documentation



Join us in this web seminar to see how the Mentor Graphics’ Service Documentation software suite is helping leading OEMs deliver VIN specific Service Documentation. Send VIN specific Service Documentation directly from the designer to technician.

The Service experience has a key role in building the reputation for quality in a vehicle brand. With ever-increasing product complexity, many OEMs have struggled to provide adequately detailed documentation to their service organizations. Instead, automotive service technicians struggle with error-prone diagnostic procedures due to inaccurate, out-of-date, and hard to read schematic information costing valuable time, money, and customer loyalty.

Recent developments in electrical design documentation software have changed the game - allowing OEMs to provide VIN-specific wiring diagrams to the service technician, cutting the time taken to diagnose issues with benefits for the customer, service organization and OEM.

What You Will Learn

  • How “as manufactured” wiring data and option specific information can be integrated to synthesize VIN specific diagrams
  • How the VIN specific data is efficiently distributed to the service organization
  • How the service technician can access VIN-specific data, narrow the scope to specific subsets of the design, and probe the wiring design to understand its correct behavior
