Solving for automotive wiring harness complexity with a platform generative flow


With the increase in electronics in modern-day vehicles, traditional design methods do not always meet the needs of this expanded complexity. Traditional wire schematics creation is a time-consuming, error-prone task reliant on manual labor. What is needed to move forward in this realm is a generative approach in which wiring designs are automatically generated from higher-level inputs, allowing “correct by construction” design creation. In this webinar, we will share some insight into the tools which enable this.

Utilize generative design tools to reduce electrical design times and costs

Tools utilizing generative design can automatically generate accurate wiring designs for all allowable configurations at the platform level. This approach enables manufacturers to capture and develop their competitive intellectual property. System integration is rapid, accomplishing in a few hours a task that would otherwise take weeks. This reduces electrical design times and costs while enabling the evaluation of alternative architectures.

In this webinar, discover how generative design can be achieved in electrical and electronic design, delivering engineers tooling to deal with complexity, cost, and change management.
