Electrical design is getting more complicated—the electronics on even the “simplest” machines are sometimes beyond what the big carmakers were doing 25 years back with big engineering teams and the best CAD tools available. Today’s electrical engineers need more than basic electrical drawing software; they need tools that take the complexity out of the task—helping them work smarter and faster.
A new generation of electrical design tools is now being used by hundreds of OEM and harness manufacturing companies worldwide, from small 10-employee companies to the biggest companies in the industry. With automation facilities that eliminate many of the most labor-intensive and error-prone tasks, these companies often experience payback within less than nine months, with reduced designcycle times, reduced rework costs and improved margins. Here’s how they do it.
