One major step is to create a smart and dependable infrastructure. Designing that infrastructure with accuracy and speed is an essential element of the strategic outlook. A design in the generation and distribution space requires careful attention to detail in every aspect from concept all the way through to documentation.
We will demonstrate workflows that help designers take the next leap in productivity in various industries like aerospace, harness manufacturing, industrial machinery etc. The attendees will have a chance to ask questions and learn about the latest developments towards fully automating your design workflow.
This webinar will outline the best practices for creating harness manufacturing drawings. The overall cost of designing and manufacturing a harness can be drastically reduced by following a few simple steps. These cost reducing best practices are applicable to both in-house and outsourcing manufacturing.
Join Zuken and Cirris for this joint webinar. Wire harness manufacturers need a simple and quick process to create the wire harness design, estimate cost and generate quotations with manufacturing build documentation.
This webinar will cover the design of large electrical projects. A vital element of the design process is the tracking of nomenclature, device and cable functions, assignments and placement. This is for the accurate generation of complete Bills of Materials, Cabling Schedules and all documentation such as labels, manufacturing files and test data.
Building on the webinar “Electrical and Fluid Engineering in the Internet of Things Era,” this webinar examines the specific requirements of the plant and machinery sector and shows examples of best practices.
This webinar examines the changing role of electrical and fluid engineering in product development and examine approaches to providing an end-to-end electrical and fluid engineering process that is tightly integrated with mechanical and software engineering.
This webinar, part 1 of a 2-part series, covers the logical part of the wire harness design process. At the end of the design flow of the logical part we use the topology and wiring path to assign wires and cables to a harness.
This webinar follows our first webinar “Wire / Harness Design Automation Basics I” where we have seen the logical part of the design process. Now we will look at the physical part of the wire harness design process.
Please join us for this interactive technical webinar where panel design will be discussed and demonstrated. Learn how to avoid electrical panel design errors by using a connected circuit and panel layout solution.
Please join us for this interactive technical webinar where tolerance failures and detection will be discussed and demonstrated. Insure that the maximum permissible current is not exceeded by the connected load. Verify the maximum voltage for correct operation is not exceeded. What happens when a switch is operated or when a relay is activated?
In a typical scenario, electrical and mechanical engineering departments have a tendency to work independently, communicating in a limited and often uncoordinated fashion, which can lead to costly, time-consuming errors.
Webinar: Functional Block Diagrams to Detailed System Wiring Diagrams – A New and Integrated Approach
In the area of System Design, System Engineers have accomplished their design tasks using an array of different tools including spreadsheets, diagramming programs and “dumb” graphics.
The white paper takes a look at the resulting tasks form an electronic, electrical and fluid engineering perspective and presents a pragmatic solution approach.
In this white paper, you will find numerous tips and suggestions to achieve a future proof product development process (PDP).
This white paper considers the importance of data and process management for modern product development, and shows why electrical CAD data are best managed in a domain-specific environment that provides a basis for integration into enterprise-wide PLM and ERP environments.
