Space may be the final frontier, but to reach this destination, engineers need robust Electrical and Electronic (E/E) systems. Discover how holistic, digital tools vastly improved one space company’s wire harness processes, ultimately helping them achieve first flight – a huge milestone in space transportation. Learn how to replicate this company’s success by tuning into our webinar.
Rockets, satellites and other space vehicles often require hundreds to thousands of electrical wiring configurations, often with connectors, backshells and close-out assemblies. To sift through this complexity, Firefly Aerospace looked to digital E/E development tools. Armed with a robust E/E engineering solution, this space company gained integrated design and analysis, fully customizable workflows, intuitive user interfaces, among other notable features – helping them reorient wire harness processes for success.
Using digital E/E development tools, Firefly Aerospace was able to holistically transform their processes into a consolidated, single flow of information – known as the digital thread. Through the digital thread, Firefly Aerospace seamlessly transferred E/E system requirements and models between their systems, bringing their software, electrical and mechanical domains under one streamlined process, improving collaboration and time-to-market.
Prior to adopting comprehensive E/E systems development tools, Firefly Aerospace relied on manual methodology for creating wire harnesses. Due to the complex nature of electrical development, in conjunction with constant system updates, a great deal of resources and time were expended to create even a single E/E project. With the help of robust, digital tools, Firefly Aerospace adjusted their processes for the better – and you can too.
