smartCable offers 2 product lines for the design and manufacturing of harnesses.

V5H (integrated in CATIA V5) offers functionality for design engineering and drawing generation. MS_Cable offers functionality for manufacture engineering (creation of production documents and formboard drawing and costing).

Both product lines use a master model orientated approach (VPD). Grouped in editions standard modules and interfaces can be combined to a customer specific application and customized by set-Up tables. A direct interface between both product lines allows "loss-less" data exchange.

For customers who already work with 3D models, our product line V5H is the correct choice. V5H scans the CATIA 3D model, extracts the harness relevant data items and imports electric information. For flattening 2 methods are available: the automatic method allows the flattening of a complete harness. The interactive method allows the user to select parts of the topology and to generate the drawing step by step.
V5H and MS_Cable offer functionality for designing a 150% topology out of selected CATIA models or drawings. This is an excellent way to keep amendments and documentation costs low.

V5H offers functionality:
- SCAN model
- Import electric information
- 3D Routing
- 3D2D

MS_Cable contains the tools:

- H_VM

(Offer) calculation
Generating form board drawings
Formation of pre-assembly
Generation of work plans
Check for consistency of the wiring model

In V5H and MS_Cable offer several interfaces to electric design programs such as LCable, E3, EB Cable and the standard interface ELOG.
Bi-directional support of KBL is offered for MS_Cable.
