Automated Creation of Harness Formboard Designs
On-demand Web Seminar
View this webinar and understand how the cycle time from engineering freeze to manufacturing start can be reduced, and the quality and accuracy of the graphical documentation increased.
The discussion focuses on the challenges of maintaining multiple harness diagram views for several different purposes (such as engineering, contractual documentation and manufacturing) and how modern software tools can achieve this through the separation of style from content.
Functionality available within Capital automates the production of alternate views of harness design content directly from the engineering data. The graphical style is configurable to match the required purpose and corporate standards. During this web seminar the power of style management will be illustrated via the preparation of formboard designs, including automatic insertion of detailed connector end views and placement of fixture points.
What You Will Learn
- How engineers can automate the creation of alternative harness diagram views
- How formboard designs and associated visual aids can be generated using this technology
