Collaborative Design of Electrical Systems

CATIA Electrical provides a powerful integrated environment that enables collaborative design of electrical systems in the context of a 3D virtual product.

The solution is based on Requirement, Functional, Logical and Physical (RFLP) systems decomposition approach that enables full traceability of information from initial systems requirement to the final product implementation.

CATIA Electrical enables efficient concurrent design engineering of mechatronic systems so that engineers from multiple disciplines such as mechanical, electrical and systems engineering can work collaboratively to optimize the electrical systems design.

Knowledge management capabilities facilitate automated checks of the electrical systems design against predefined compliance rules and standards.

Key Benefits

Extended capabilities, from requirements to electrical physical design :

  • Rapid propagation of design changes at any time to optimize the electrical design process

  • Efficient concurrent design through tight collaboration between mechanical and electrical engineers, between systems architects and electrical harness designers

  • Full electrical Bill of Material, component, configuration and life-cycle management.
