Wiring and Harness Design in Solid Edge

In a world of ever increasing electrical complexity, being able to accurately document and design your whole product has become a real challenge. Non-intelligent drawing tools and spreadsheets are no longer capable of keeping track of the electrical aspects of your designs. Companies now need a smart electrical design environment, one which can validate and provide automation as you proceed.

Solid Edge offers a suite of applications for the design, simulation and manufacturing of electrical systems and wiring harnesses. Developed specifically for this set of tasks, Solid Edge electrical design automates many of the common manual operations that consume an engineer’s time, and reduces the opportunity for human error.

This video showcases Solid Edge Electrical Routing, a dedicated, process-driven environment for the efficient creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles in a Solid Edge assembly. The tool allows design teams to collaborate to create complete and accurate digital mockups containing both mechanical and electrical components.
