Creo Cable Harness Design WEEK TWO

Course Duration: 40 hours

Overview: In this five-day customized course is for those particiapnts who are already familiar with routing cables & harnesses.  These participants will take training with respect to a specific project or product line.   Participants will learn how to route electrical harnesses, create flattened harnesses for manufacturing, and document harness designs by creating flattened harness drawings that include customized BOM tables and wire list information. Participants will enhance what they know to create Wiring Diagrams and utilize that data for later auto route functions through assemblies. After successfully completing the course, participants will be able to create 3D electrical harnesses, and associated manufacturing deliverables using the latest version of Creo. The 40 hour course covers extensive study and use of Creo Schematics for routing harnesses automatically.

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered onsite at your facility. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class at 312.226.8339 today.

Training Track: Design Engine offers a Creo Schematics One Week Workshop as a part of a cabling track. Design Engine can also assist in the customization of your company-specific Creo Schematic symbols, so that they  correspond correctly with logical references to Creo Parametric connectors.

Note: There are two classes available, one is a three-day training class, and another  is a five-day training class. The use of Creo Schematic wiring diagrams can be offered for both workshops but is usually only for the larger five-day class. The five-day is a more exhaustive study of Creo Cable Harness that utilizes Creo Schematic wire diagrams for creating harness in assemblies automatically with specific focus on auto route and problem solving harnesses. We also offer a two-week focus for contractors looking to become experts in the harness design field.   Call to inquire 312.226.8339

Customization: Participants are encourage to bring in harnesses from your work. This course can be customized  for specific project tasks or workflow.  Some manufacturers may use Zuken, or Mentor graphics as opposed to Creo Schematics for example.  Others may chose to  route bundles as opposed to individual conductors.   For contractors looking to become high level harness design consultants, we offer a special two-week cable harness design program.  Ask to speak to the instructor at 312.226.8339.

Audience: This course is intended for contractors, drafters, mechanical engineers or electrical engineers involved in the management of schematics, electrical cabling and wire harnesses design, or technicians who work within harness design and development teams.

Projects: Design Engine has prepared a series of 15 Creo Harness tutorials and Creo Schematics (was RSD) exercises are designed to lead the participants through the cabling design and modification process especially as we may be sharing new workflow. These HTML and video tutorials are left with the participants through a password protected web site for a continued Design Engine learning experience.

Although Design Engine is prepared to generate custom training materials upon student participant interests or job requirements, this preparation process takes time. We can also help prepare 2d & 3d library parts for your organization.  Ten to twenty hours is often required for generating custom HTML tutorials. Call Design Engine to speak to a designer for inquiries at 312.226.8339.

Prerequisites: General knowledge of Creo or  basic harness routing and a basic understanding of assemblies and top down design will be helpful.

  • Emphasis on top down design with respect to cable design and harness design.
  • How to create 3D electrical harnesses using Creo. This includes using 2d schematic diagrams created with Creo Schematics so to pass information into 3D harness designs through Creo Assemblies.
  • How to route electrical harnesses through Creo assemblies and separated top down models, create flattened harnesses for manufacturing, and document harness designs by creating flattened harness drawings that include customized BOM tables and wire list information. Participants will gain a firm grasp on large assemblies and top down design in these workshops.
  • Diagram and Harness Development Process Overview.
  • Learn to use flexible components as opposed to Family tables for adding cable ties.
  • Create Wiring Diagrams using Creo Schematic.
  • Modify existing Creo Schematic diagrams for successful XML export to Creo assemblies for auto routing.
  • Transfer Creo Schematics information into Creo Assemblies and respective drawing tables.
  • Manage harness assembly designs with top-down design.
  • Create Flat Harnesses for Manufacturing and Harness Detail Drawings.
  • Create Electrical Harness Assembly Structures.
  • Route wires and cables in harness designs.
  • Create Flat Harnesses for Manufacturing.
  • Create Harness Drawings.
  • Workflow issues with respect to construction through to major changes to harness assemblies.

Discussions:

  • Discuss how Creo Schematics integrated with routing cables and auto route work together to enhance efficiency.
  • Expound alternate ways to gather usable connectors i.e. IGES/STEP from web site resources.
  • Discuss the difference between wires and conductors.
  • Discuss how to handle modifications to a cable if parts of the cable turn up missing.
  • Discuss with examples how top down design aids in the cable routing process.
  • Review why a designer might want to use top down design relationships made for routing harnesses before submitting to a Team Center, Windchill, Intralink, or other library system.
  • Illustrate and discuss problems with auto route with respect to spool data, schematics and network cables.
  • Discuss solutions workflow with respect to initial construction of cables through to auto routing process.
  • After successfully completing this course, participants will be able to create 3D electrical harnesses and associated manufacturing deliverables using Creo.
  • Discuss the latest numeric harness manufacturing options.

Brief:

This WEEK TWO Cable Harness Design course is intended to apply to specific product or product line.   As with all of the Design-Engine classes we help you learn Creo, not read to you from an exercise or a book. In this course we also help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming expert faster. As with all Design-Engine classes, participants keep the training material login and password for life.

Video Training Delivery System:

Ask your Design Engine account manager about the Design-Engine Video Training Delivery System or TDS for short. We have prepared this entire class in an easy to follow guide for designers and engineers who may want this TDS as a supplement to this course. Call today to speak to an account manager about the details at 312.226.8339

*Please note that prices listed on this page are based upon pre-payment prior to the start of the class and does not include the Design-Engine Video training Delivery System. The TDS is available as an additional cost to this course. Call for details 312.226.8339


As the main instructor for Design-engine Bart teaches many of the PTC Creo & the Solidworks Surfacing classes. When he is not developing new training material you will find him on motorcycles, bicycles or on a skateboard. He loves any kind of racing on two wheels.
