Re-Imagining Electrical System Design

Using a model-based approach for wiring harness in automotive and sophisticated industrial machinery.


Electrical system complexity is reaching a tipping point across industries, from modern passenger vehicles to sophisticated industrial machines that can now contain nearly 5,000 wiring harnesses. The electrical systems of these machines contain multiple networks, thousands of sensors and actuators, miles of wiring and tens of thousands of discrete components. Designing these complex systems is a significant challenge itself, but there also needs to be understanding of how system requirements move into manufacturing and maintenance processes.

Producing the next generation of products will require updated methodologies that support complete traceability, employ automation and blur the boundaries between electrical domains. This paper examines how a model-based approach, implemented with an advanced portfolio of engineering software, can provide these capabilities to empower the creation of tomorrow’s products.
