Electrical Harness System Design

Cross-Probing with NX, Capital, and Xpedition

Not long ago, Siemens PLM Software and Mentor Graphics announced integrations between NX, their Mechanical CAD application, Capital, their harness design ECAD application, and Xpedition, their board design ECAD application. There’s an infrequently cited capability there called interactive highlighting or cross-probing. In this video, Chad Jackson provides an overview of what it is and why it is important.

Is There a Cloud on Your ECAD Horizon?

We devote a lot of our resources to participating in conferences, press briefings, and webinars covering innovative and trending solutions designed to help product designers and engineers do their jobs better.

OpenBOM: What Does it Do, What’s the Value?

OpenBOM is a cloud-based solution for managing bills-of-materials. What does it do differently? Is it better than using a spreadsheet? We cover that in this post.

Zuken and Vitech: Does the Acquisition Make Sense?

A couple weeks ago, Zuken acquired Vitech. What’s the fit? Does it make sense? We give a little insight in this video.

The Rising Demand for Routed Electrical Collaboration

The design of harnesses isn’t always the highest priority in the development of smart, connected products. Yet, errors in their design can have a longstanding detrimental effect. In this post, we look at designing them concurrently and collaboratively instead.
