Solid Edge Harness Design

Solid Edge Harness Design is a best-in-class graphical design application for creating harness and formboard drawings, which can be used for in-house production or build-to-print purposes. It uses a controlled and streamlined, correct-by-design process to provide digital continuity across domains.

Speed design time and automate steps in the harness design process using industry-proven harness design and engineering tools.

Solid Edge Harness Design

Solid Edge Harness Design bridges the gap between the electrical and mechanical design of a harness in a single solution, allowing engineers to quickly and confidently bring products to market.

Built-in component and symbol libraries, and a powerful parts selector

Solid Edge Harness Design include built-in intelligent libraries for components and symbols that drive the auto-selection of terminals, seals and wires. A powerful parts selector configures and selects terminals, seals and wires for each connector. Connector face views and tables make it easy for designers to determine how wires terminate.

Flexible harness design options: standalone or derived from wiring design

You can design harnesses in a standalone mode, or they can be derived from the wiring provided by Solid Edge Wiring Design.

Powerful reporting for documentation creation

Once a harness is complete, powerful reporting capabilities can be used to generate documentation required for manufacturing, including BOMs and cutting lists. Since fast and accurate information is assured, this can significantly reduce production lead times and prevent manufacturing errors.

Formboard layout capabilities

Harnesses can be drawn non-scaled or full size using formboard layout capabilities.

True ECAD/MCAD collaboration

For a real-world 3D experience involving true ECAD/MCAD collaboration, Solid Edge Harness Design can be fully integrated with the Solid Edge 3D design tools.

Design automation

Automates the complete design-to-production flow to achieve greater wire harness manufacturing efficiencies. Connector tables automatically populate as wires are added, terminals selected and wire tables generated. A powerful parts selector automatically configures and selects terminals, seals and wires for each connector.

Automated reporting

Configure and built reports using an API or an easy user interface. Reports are generated directly from the design drawing, ensuring fast and accurate information.

Mature tool

Based on industry-proven design tools, developed for the mainstream market. Solid Edge Harness Design comes with video tutorials, how-to documents, support from an active user community and an online training course.

Data-compatible integrations

Full data compatibility for customers using Siemens Capital and/or Teamcenter applications. Transfer 3D designs and bill of materials (BOM) from harness design to PLM or use data derived from Solid Edge Harness Design in Capital enterprise solutions.

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. Dumb 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.
