Electrical systems are rapidly growing, regardless of the industry or application. The increasing size of electrical networks can raise the cost of vehicle development two-fold due to the innate cost of the additional wiring and components and the time and resources required to design an ever more complex system. That complexity can spell even greater problems during revisions and re-designs.
In an attempt to address these issues, new E/E systems and wiring harness tools are built to facilitate collaboration to reduce design costs, design cycles, and risk. A design flow incorporating modern tools, such as VeSys from Siemens Digital Industries Software, supports collaboration and concurrent design between the electrical and mechanical domains.
