Use Composite Supersets to Generate Multiple Harness Variants



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
