Better Electrical Design Cuts Costs for Off-Highway Vehicles

Details

Overview

This web seminar will examine the business and technical challenges involved in the electrical design of Off-Highway vehicles, in particular the need to cut design-cycle times and product cost while improving quality.

New design tools are needed to achieve these gains. Design tools that can speed design yet automate many of the most time consuming and labor-intensive tasks. The webinar will show how companies using the VeSys electrical design and harness design tools are cutting the cost of design, raising product quality, and reducing product cost.

What You Will Learn

  • Create higher quality electrical designs, reducing the need for physical prototypes
  • Provide detailed engineering and cost reports that help companies optimize product design early in the program
  • Streamline the integration of electrical wiring design with physical layout and harness design
