Modeling Connectivity and Wiring in Automotive and Aerospace Electrical Design



Make it easier to balance cost vs. complexity in automotive and aerospace electrical design. This web seminar will teach you how to model electrical connectivity and wiring as a composite superset.

Complex automotive and aerospace electrical designs require efficient creation and management of option tags, the foundation element of design for multiple configurations.

During this webinar, you’ll learn how Mentor Graphics datacentric design tools can simplify the management of multiple optioned configurations, allowing designers to build a superset “composite” design that correctly generates variant configurations. These data-centric designs also facilitate detailed “what-if” analysis for cost and weight optimization, reducing design costs.

What You Will Learn

  • How leading companies automate the creation of electrical wiring using datacentric, rules- and constraints-based design
  • How to automate generation of a composite superset electrical design from option-tagged designs , with full decomposition into buildable variants
  • How to rapidly calculate detailed cost and weight estimates for automotive and aerospace electrical architectures
