Solutions for accelerated processes
Engineering software for wire harness design in the automotive industry
Simultaneous, transparent and interdisciplinary: AUCOTEC's engineering software offers highly efficient solutions for designing and manufacturing the physical wire harness of cars, trucks and buses.
The Engineering Base platform not only copes perfectly with the usually enormous diversity of harness variants, but also enables interdisciplinary, simultaneous design of a wiring harness, which is highly transparent and automatically consistent!
Your special challenges
- Highest demands of customers on the OEMs in a global market with very different conditions.
- The number of vehicle classes is on the increase, while the number of equipment parameters is increasing even more.
- Wiring harnesses are among the most complex components in vehicle development.
- Significantly increasing complexity through the platform concept, with which the different brands and vehicle derivatives are to be implemented from a common modular system.
- Innovations required in ever shorter cycles.
- Collaboration of globally distributed development teams.
The optimum process
- Engineering Base (EB) as an ideal cooperation platform: central database for local and remote clients, and scalable architecture.
- The extraordinary openness of EB allows flexible configuration for different requirements without having to customize software.
- The entire design space and usage location concept ensure the replication of the customized wiring harness concept within the entire engineering process.
- Highly consistent parallel work in different steps of the process and disciplines with intelligent synchronization.
- Geometry data integration and optimum data integrity due to bi-directional integration of such 3D systems as CATIA, Siemens NX or Creo.
- Unique full support of the modular design creates a significant increase in efficiency.
- Integrated solution modules from the electrical logic up to the 2D layout in a comprehensive data model.
- Full control of changes and their impact due to unique tracking and revision technology.
- Secure integration of external suppliers by the convenient importing and exporting of engineering data; full change control.
- Support for such standard formats as KBL and VEC.
Embedded in your company IT system
- The closest possible link to SAP and Teamcenter for optimum process integration.
- Easy Office integration for optimum data exchange without proprietary interfaces.
- Open API for integration, for example, in in-house document management and maintenance systems.
