Keywords: knowledge based engineering, aircraft wiring, manufacturing design, flattening wiring harness
Increases in aircraft wiring volume and complexity call for manufacturing design improvements to reduce cost and lead-time. By using Knowledge Based Engineering the repetitive, time-consuming process of flattening a 3D digital wiring harness can be largely automated, while ensuring compliance to physical constraints and manufacturing guidelines.
