Optimize Electrical Wire Harness and Cable System Design

The CATIA Electrical solution provides an integrated environment that enables collaborative design of electrical systems in the context of a virtual product to ensure wire harness fit that minimizes downstream errors.

Our solution is based on the RFLP (Requirement, Functional, Logical and Physical) approach that enables full traceability of information from requirement to the final product. Knowledge management is included in the solution to facilitate automated checks of the electrical design against predefined compliance rules and standards that must be followed throughout the design and manufacturing processes.

CATIA Electrical  enables efficient concurrent engineering for mechatronic parts so that engineers from various disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and systems can work collaboratively to optimize electrical harness design.
