A Quick Overview

A wiring harness is an organized set of wires, terminals, and connectors that run through the entire vehicle, and relay information, and electric power, thereby playing a critical role in “connecting” a variety of components. Laying out the wiring harness physically into the vehicle without prior knowledge of the positions of each component will be time-consuming. Therefore we use wiring boards and in the recent past virtual environments in the CAD software to understand where modifications can be made, allowing the design to be finalized for creating the wiring harness making it very productive and economical in the automotive industry.
You will learn wiring harness discipline in the CATIA software.
At the end of this course, you will understand the CATIA electrical harness discipline.  And you will have an understanding of the electrical distribution system, different electrical components and standards used in the automotive wiring harness.
