Mentor Graphics : Bombardier Aerospace Leverages Mentor Graphics' Capital Software

06/10/2014 | 01:29am US/Eastern

Mentor Graphics said that Bombardier Aerospace has implemented a complete digital development process for the Learjet 85 aircraft's electrical distribution system.

According to a release, adherence to the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 25 Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) mandate is now necessary for certification of new civil aircraft. With the FAA'sand Canadian Transportation Agency's (CTA) EWIS mandate as a goal, Bombardier achieved very significant process and quality improvement objectives.

The Capital product is an advanced software suite for the electrical systems and wire harness domain, the Company said. The Capital product is built to support the complex demands of integrated processes from initial aircraft definition through electrical system and design, harness manufacture and aircraft maintenance.

The Capital software used at Bombardier includes applications to address electrical systems definition and integration, integration with mechanical CAD systems, culminating with products that address the harness planning and manufacturing tasks. Along the entire process, data verification constantly occurs which ensures that the manufactured wire harnesses meet design intent. For example, EWIS wire routing constraints defined early in the Capital environment are maintained throughout the flow and ensure that the as-built wire routing meets the EWIS mandate objectives.

"Bombardier Aerospace is a great example of an innovative company leveraging Capital's Platform Level Engineering Capabilities to achieve quantifiable business benefits. These tools help customers to realize their quality goals and position themselves strongly for the future," said Martin O'Brien, general manager of the Integrated Electrical Systems Division of Mentor Graphics.
