Use Composite Supersets to Generate Multiple Harness Variants
On-demand Web Seminar
Learn how Mentor Graphics harness design tools can save costly design time and optimize the cost vs. complexity trade-off in harness design in this one-hour seminar.
An individual harness for an instrument panel, for example, can potentially have thousands of possible variants to support a large number of customer options.
We'll demonstrate how to use our harness design tools to define a harness as a composite superset, automatically generating the required harness variants and supporting documentation, including detailed costing.
What You Will Learn
- How to quickly create fully validated, costed harness and formboard designs from KBL or CATIA 3D models and many other sources
- How to design harnesses as composite supersets that automatically decompose into the required variant derivative harnesses, automatically generating diagrams for each variant
- How automated engineering algorithms can correctly select and configure connectors, terminals, coverings and other parts to reduce engineering effort and eliminate design errors
