E3.series Multi-user Deep Dive

Instructor: Chris Beck, Zuken

Customers using E3.series products can increase the productivity of their design teams by implementing E3.series within a multi-user environment. In a multi-user environment, teams can effectively and seamlessly collaborate on a single project, leveraging the power of concurrent design to meet today’s rapidly changing market demands and ever-decreasing product development cycles. In this class, admins and users will benefit by learning multi-user collaboration capabilities within E3.series with the help of a live demo. Admins will benefit further in their understanding of installation, configuration, and monitoring of a multi-user system. The class will also briefly cover the steps towards upgrading a multi-user system for new versions of E3.series.

E3.panel – It’s More than Simple Component Layouts

Instructor: Geoff Lydon, Zuken

For an electrical engineer designing a control panel, it’s typically a 2D layout, that’s it! However, to produce a panel on the floor so much more is needed – or has to be figured out on the fly. Some common questions are…What is the wire length? How should the wires be routed? Is there space in the wire duct for all the wires? Where should the holes be drilled? Where is the data to drive a CNC machine? Is there a collision between the door and the parts inside the panel? Does a part fit into the standard rack panels? In this class, you will learn details about the depth of E3.panel capabilities including managing form, fit and function; integrating mechanical 3D information; driving wire cutting, drilling, milling and assembly machines; managing space and other constraints and much more…

From Design Directly into Production, “Data2Wire”

Instructor: Pat Moroney, Komax

The value of your 3D electrical engineering tool can be greatly enhanced when used to create manufacturing data that can be directly sent to a wire processing machine or harness assembly board. Manual preparation of wire cutting lists and “nail boards” is very time-consuming. As a consequence, manufacturing a “lot size of one” is often stuck in a purely manual process. This presentation will discuss how “digital twin” data from Zuken design tools integrated with Komax platforms can be used in a very efficient way to automate control cabinet manufacturing and harness assembly processes. Once your design and manufacturing processes are digitized, the “lot size of one” problem may become a competitive advantage.

Modular Design with Traceability

Instructor: Chris Robles, Zuken

Every innovator has been told to think big. As engineers, we are always trying to think of how to get to that big pie in the sky. Sometimes we must take a step back and evaluate whether thinking big is the best way. Let’s consider thinking small. Let’s think modular. In this class, participants will learn how to create a modular project from an existing design. They will also learn how to share a module to an empty project. After creating a new product, we will discuss searching for versions, or “where-used” and how E3.series manage traceability in your designs.

High-speed Design Flow Using CR-8000

MBSE 2.0: How Concurrent Systems Engineering Can Help Your Organization

Instructor: Mark Malinoski, Vitech

Concurrent model-based systems engineering is becoming critical to a successful engineering outcome. It requires that systems engineers and subject matter experts collaborate on design solutions. In order to facilitate this, it is necessary to realize a practice and toolset based on a proven systems-metamodel that enables the design team to instantiate its system model in an enterprise-class database. With a robust API that connects with the tools and processes of subject matter experts and other engineering disciplines, concurrent model-based systems engineering becomes indispensable in addressing the engineering challenges of our time. This is the power and promise of MBSE 2.0.

Simplify MCAD Integration with E3.3DTransformer

Instructor: Codie Cobb, Saima Ahmad, Zuken

It is challenging to support multiple tools in the design process, especially with the back and forth communication required to resolve design issues between electrical and mechanical disciplines. E3.3DTransformer is a dedicated tool to help teams working with MCAD authoring tools like Dassault Systems CATIA, Siemens NX or native, open-standard 3D exchange formats such as JT. E3.3DTransformer is used to import 3D-based MCAD models and extract electrical, harness-related topological information to be re-used in downstream harness engineering tasks. In this class, participants will learn about E3.3DTransformer and its features such as simplification and healing of extracted harness topology structure, reduction of obsolete vertices, or joining of non-coherent segments. The easy to use UI and quick setup is designed to help save time and money in the design process.

E3.topology – The Solution for Project/Design Planning

Instructor: Taras Wallace, Zuken

An important step towards a successful design is being able to create a high-level plan that matches the requirements of the end product. The great majority of teams employ a complex system of high-level planning views disconnected from the downstream detailed design. The changes are often cumbersome and require a major duplication of effort both on the front and back end. E3.series provides two solutions to overcome the early phase design challenges: hierarchical blocks in E3.cable, and E3.topology to drive detailed design and wiring diagrams from the functional layout. In this class, the users will learn:

  • • Basics of E3.topology system design and intelligent wiring diagrams
  • • Basics of hierarchical blocks feature in E3.cable
  • • The differences between hierarchical blocks and E3.topology

Paperless Engineering with E3.WiringChecks and E3.WiringCockpit

Instructor: Geo Ng, Zuken

“Paperless engineering improves accuracy, traceability, and schedule. We can all agree that engineering design is only as good as the downstream stakeholders who check, build, and verify it. Much too often, engineering teams suffer from varying degrees of communication gaps.

E3.series tools like E3.WiringChecks and E3.WiringCockpit is here to facilitate better communication between design, checking, commissioning, technicians, and all parties involved after the initial design. In this class, participants will learn the basics of E3.WiringChecks to facilitate electronic annotation of drawings with detailed comments, categorization of error types, and traceability through discovery, correction, and validation; E3.WiringCockpit to improve communication between design and installation technicians.”
