Why ECAD/MCAD Integration for Routing Design

Track: Partner Sessions

Session Number: 170240
Date: Tue, May 9th, 2017
Time: 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM
Room: 110

Description:

 

This session will explore a product-centric approach to the complete design to manufacturing cycle using control system interconnection data to drive the creation of cable and harness manufacturing documentation.

A product-centric design process applied to mechatronics design will result in building better products faster and with lower risk. Product-centric design methodology requires cross-discipline collaboration that includes mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, control engineering and systems engineering. In the mechanical world it involves the development of 3D designs that include the physical representations of components belonging to these different disciplines, e.g., hydraulic valves, hydraulic cylinders, actuators, motors, control units, cables, harnesses, etc.

Learn how an ECAD control system design tool can provide the data necessary to accomplish the routing design task in MCAD and once routed, manufacturing documentation can be generated for the cables and harnesses.
