Applying Wiring Harness Changes Without Damaging Your Electric System Design Flow

Tech Talk

Available On Demand until April 26, 2018

When an engineering change must be made to a wiring harness—and let’s face it, there is always going to be late-stage changes—it means you will make a change in multiple design steps. This Tech Talk discusses the challenges of applying changes and how to better handle them. For example, you might need to change an electric component that drives more current than the previous one. A change such as this can cause issues throughout your design flow: System Design, Wiring Design, and the Harness Design. The resulting inconsistencies lead to poor quality and prevent you from achieving your design cycle goals. 

This Tech Talk also investigates improved methodologies and innovative solutions to propagate and validate engineering changes automatically and provides an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.
