Improved Electrical Design Tools & Processes for Military Ground Vehicles

Details

Overview

Join Mentor Graphics for this session to learn how leading companies are improving their electrical design process by integrating their design process data and automating key steps in the process.

Electrical system design is becoming a major challenge for many companies in the Military Ground Vehicle industry as the levels of system complexity increase. Companies must seek new ways to design their electrical systems faster and more efficiently and this is demanding the use of more automation in the process.

 

What You Will Learn

  • How leading companies are implementing new electrical design processes that provide faster, better quality designs by integrating data in the multi-step, multi-partner design process
  • How elements of the design definition can be automatically generated – speeding design and eliminating the need for manual checking
  • How electrical designs can be validated for integrity and reliability
