Wiring Harness System Design with LDorado
LDorado is an industry-leading application for wiring harness system design and the software of choice in the most important development departments of premium car manufacturers as well as the international wiring harness system supply industry. The components of the LDorado solution for digital wiring harness system development result in a comprehensive package of wiring harness system design tools for the entire process based on the KBL standard - from the first logical system concept to the complete wiring harness.
Thanks to sophisticated change management, LDorado helps to avoid additional revision work in the event of changes. Cable set variants can be implemented more quickly.
With the integration of CAD models and the generation of reusable vehicle electrical system data, LDorado supports production-optimized cost management. This means that a wide range of options for implementing on-board electrical system concepts are also available for the manufacturing process.

Powerful graphical wiring design authoring and editing
Capital™ Logic is a powerful graphical and design-management environment for authoring both logical connectivity designs (signals), and physical wiring designs (wires, splices, multicores, etc).
Capital™ Logic may be used to design both sub-systems and to accomplish interactive system integration, i.e. the merging of multiple sub-systems into the physical structure.
Capital™ Logic is more than a schematic design tool, it provides a foundation for a complete Capital™ electrical design flow: from logical concept design through to harness design (using Capital™ HarnessXC).

Electrical Schematics and Topology
Wiring harness drawings are created from the electrical and topological data with LDorado Design. It is also possible to construct a completely new installation in LDorado Design, while existing electrical data can be used to support this.
The CAT.KBL interface for LDorado is able to bi-directionally synchronize CATIA models with the LDorado modules via the KBL format. With the help of the LDorado Design 2D layout functionality, 3D installation data can be conveniently and directly transferred to a 2D drawing.
In LDorado design cable strands can be developed in a 150% representation. A 150% drawing contains all possible options and variants of a wiring harness, whereby corresponding configurations can represent a vehicle-specific 100% view.
Changes to the wiring harness can be easily documented, and tracked across the entire development process using the digital change documentation (Amend).
With LDorado Design, complete form board drawings can be derived from the wiring harness drawings. Additional documentation, such as HP-GL / 2, parts lists and cable lists, can also be generated directly from the cable harness data. Further production-relevant data for testing, cutting, welding, isolating, sealing etc. are provided directly.
LDorado Design is an integral part of the LDorado Engineering Package. The LDorado Engineering Package is completed by LDorado Gole SE, LDorado Project Explorer and LDorado Tweaker.
Graphical Symbols drawn fast and easily
The SVG symbol creation for circuit diagram and wiring harness drawing is done with LDorado Tweaker. Symbols can be imported as DXF or SVG files, and are prepared and exported as SVG files for use in the corresponding LDorado modules.
LDorado Tweaker is an integral part of the LDorado Engineering Package. The LDorado Engineering Package is completed by LDorado Gole SE, LDorado Project Explorer and LDorado Design.
Viewing LDorado design drawings
LDorado Design Viewer is the free tool for viewing and analyzing LDorado Design documents in their original format.
By embedding the symbols used or directly accessing the original LDorado Design master database, an exact representation is guaranteed, as in LDorado Design. All document structures (modules, routes, connectors, etc.) are retained during viewing, and can be used to highlight or hide drawing parts.
The use of original components from LDorado Design ensures exact matching of the viewing results with the original presentation in LDorado Design.
Visualizing and Preparation of KBL and LDorado Documents
LDorado Vestigo enables the visualization and analysis of the resulting electrical system data. Recurring work steps are automated with the help of the included macro functionalities. LDorado Vestigo evaluates the data and makes it available as a PDF, parts list or Excel document. In conjunction with LDorado Design, the results can be transferred directly to the wiring system document.
Viewing and Analyzing KBL or LDorado Documents, Creating Reports
LDorado List is the generic viewing component used to display any textual information in a tabular form remaining comfortable and flexible in its user interface. Information is read from XML, KBL or other AP212 data files, then displayed in rows and columns and if necessary in multi-level tables. So LDorado List may serve as medium for communication between different departments in the design and manufacturing process. It will also help to increase documentation quality for subsequent processes. Being able to visually check the wire lists will almost certainly decrease potential errors.
Data to be visualized could be KBL sections out of AP212, concerning drawing templates, connection lists, bill of material and connector or module lists.
Functions like reduce or increase data amount, scrolling, sorting of tables or table rows makes the required display very easy to configure.
The document's structure is displayed in a hierarchy tree view.
Time and quantity calculations
LDorado Cost Accounting 2.0 enables flexible definition / transfer of customer-specific business logic with regard to manufacturing information (e.g. planning times).
As part of the calculation, the on-board electrical system data in KBL / HCV format are consumed from the upstream processes and, according to the defined calculation logic, each element of the wiring harness is provided with the correct manufacturing time and the amount of material used.
On the basis of this "time-quantity calculation", the resulting cost components can be viewed and the prices calculated using the material price information and various parameters.
For every step of the calculation process, LDorado Cost Accounting 2.0 offers the option of conveniently and efficiently analyzing, verifying, or exporting the resulting results to output formats.
The customer-specific calculation logic is created and maintained centrally on the server side and is thus made available to any number of workplaces for the calculation in a process-reliable manner.
LDorado Design, Gole SE and Project Explorer in one useful package
LDorado Engineering Package offers a unique integration between LDorado Gole SE for the electrical design and LDorado Design for the 2D wiring harness development, so that engineers from different departments along the process chain can choose the most productive solution to meet specific requirements.
Due to the associative development process between these two applications, data can be used productively in a consistent environment and changes to an electrical model can in turn be traced back to the wiring harness design.
The package is rounded off by LDorado Tweaker as a symbol editor for preparing the graphic master data and LDorado Project Explorer as an administration interface.
LDorado Engineering Package licenses allow you to work alternately in LDorado Gole SE and LDorado Design.
