The design of the physical architecture of the electrical system has a big impact on vehicle cost and weight. But, for many companies, the tools used in the architectural design stage provide only limited information and are unable to identify the cost impact of small but important changes to either physical layout or electrical design configurations.
Join Mentor Graphics for this session to learn how companies are improving their architectural design process using automated architectural design tools that can rapidly model the cost impact of every element in the electrical design – from the re-positioning of a component through the effects of changing the circuit wiring.
What You Will Learn

  • How the electrical design can be modeled simultaneously at the circuit diagram and physical layout levels and then automatically merged using a rule-based synthesis process
  • How cost and weight reports can be rapidly generated detailing the cost of every wire and component in the vehicle
  • How companies can rapidly identify the cost of multiple alternative design layouts
