White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Today’s passenger, recreational, and commercial vehicles are no longer just electro-mechanical products. Modern vehicles come equipped with an almost dizzying array of electronic features and components. These include everything from standard comfort and quality-of-life features like heated seats, air conditioning, and in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI), to limited automation and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
In addition, a network of electronic control units (ECUs) now assist essential vehicle functions, such as braking, steering, and throttle control. In today’s automotive market, the electronics are coming to represent most of the value of a vehicle.
The ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features places a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.
