Balance Cost & Complexity in Automotive & Aerospace Electrical Design



Structuring configuration data and automating key parts of the electrical design process can help your company reduce costs and increase efficiencies. In this one-hour webinar, how you'll learn Mentor Graphics electrical design software can help you strike the correct balance between customer choice and efficient, cost-effective management of electrical design.

Get this balance wrong and your company is burning money: Expanding customer choices unnecessarily, adding unwanted complexities that increase cost or, worst of all, speccing a product that cannot be engineered or built. By restructuring design data, you can introduce new efficiencies throughout the product cycle, increasing profitability.

What You Will Learn

  • Understanding the difficulties, costs and inefficiencies created as customer options and electrical design complexities increase
  • How Mentor Graphics electrical design software provides structure to the information allowing detailed what-if analysis and optimization
  • How to use structured configuration data rigorously validate harness supplier release data against the marketing product plan
  • How to ensure that all orderable configurations have supporting harness part numbers, preventing assembly miss-builds
