Electrical Wire Harness Design & Drawing

From aircraft to cars, boats, and white goods, the number and length of wires and electrical cables are continuously increasing. How do you manage this complexity while delivering your products on time? Dassault Systèmes' solution for Electrical Wire Harness Design & Drawing enables collaborative design of electrical systems in context of a virtual product.

Optimize Electrical Wire Harness Design

Electrical CAD software

CATIA Electrical CAD solution provides an integrated environment that enables collaborative design of electrical systems in 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 CAD system enables efficient concurrent engineering for mechatronic parts so that engineers from various disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and systems can work collaboratively to optimize the electrical harness design.

Electrical Design Process

The Electrical Design process from CATIA integrates the complete process from the Requirements, the Electrical system definition, to the 3D harness design and manufacturing drawing documentation.

Collaborative harness Design

Improving harness Design teamwork between electrical and mechanical communities and enabling continuous collaboration between all stake holders throughout the process. Having a unique data-model in the collaborative platform enables single source of truth.

Electrical Software solutions

CATIA Electrical Software simplifies the work of electrical engineers, by providing powerful solutions for electrical design and drawing,throughout the process : for logical (intuitive creation of pathways and equipments), physical design (symmetrical harnesses, minimizing the user interaction and improving quality) and manufacturing (easy user interface to define the layout of the manufacturing view of the harnesses).
