EWIS: Reducing the Cost of Compliance



Join Mentor Graphics for this session to learn how leading companies are using Capital to automate their electrical design process using automated rule-driven design tools that cut the cost, time and effort of creating electrical wiring conforming to EWIS regulations.

Regulatory mandates such as FAR Part25 EWIS are a major challenge for electrical designers at aerospace companies. These directives add another level of complexity to the design process requiring companies to demonstrate conformance to a vast range of requirements. Companies can adopt a number of approaches to meeting these requirements - from manual checking and documentation thru automated processes that constrain the design details by direct application of the regulatory rules and constraints.

What You Will Learn

  • How leading companies are utilizing a rules and constraints based environment to capture the EWIS mandates in a form that provides consistency and repeatability of results
  • How EWIS separation requirements can be evaluated early in the design process utilizing a topology-based design approach
  • How analysis capabilities provide a tool to address the safety concerns of EWIS
