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.
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
Harness 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
