Enter generative engineering.
The core idea of generative engineering is this: Let the software automatically create feasible architectures and designs of an E/E system based on the specific set of design requirements you’ve provided. This extends further into wiring harnesses, manufacturing drawings, and service documentation.
First, you describe the constraints of each design variant. Then, you let the algorithm generate a configuration of electronics, electrical distribution, and software that meets these constraints. Finally, you review the results. If there is more than one feasible solution, select the best option.
The role of the engineer shifts dramatically in the generative engineering process. In the traditional approach, the engineer had to come up with new possible solutions. In the novel approach, the engineer is freed from that task. He can focus on clearly defining the problem and reviewing, verifying, and selecting the best solution.
This is the promise of generative engineering.
This new approach has a big impact on the way we develop new products. It lets engineers prioritize core design work over manual design tasks. And by incorporating automation, speeds up the development process. Your engineers can go through 10 design iterations in the time it used to take to complete one. And now, engineering teams can develop tailor-made solutions for each use case and meet their deadlines.
