Building the Digital Thread for Harness Design

What is a Digital Thread when it comes to harness design? This post details that definition and why it is so important to the development of smart, connected products.


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.


Harness Design: On the Critical Path

In this post, we’re going to look at the timing of the development of harnesses, the needs of modern engineers to support concurrent harness design, and the technology capabilities needed to enable that change.

Electromagnetic Simulation for Electrical Systems: Right the First Time

This post looks at a common problem in the development of smart connected products, Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), and how simulation can help you avoid it.
