Drag & Drop Tools Specifically for Avionics Electrical Design

  • Cut your design times in half and drastically reduce errors
  • More easily adhere to your companies engineering practices
  • Real-time error checking and master parts librabry with
    reusability of approved equipment assemblies eliminate
    all but first-use errors 

Automation Fused with Collaboration
Visual Engineer’s automation and customized tools benefit productivity and cost centers from Electrical Engineering to Procurement. Not only does Visual Engineer reduce tedium for engineers with intelligent Drag & Drop features, Managers and CFO’s will appreciate and value the automated generation of cost estimates and Technical Publications.


Create Diagrams Faster with “Drag and Drop” Drafting
Rather than construct drawings from geometric primitives such as lines and arcs, simply drag the component onto the wiring diagram. Components are automatically created and drafted on the drawing with all attributes, (reference designator, equipment names, contact positions and signals) in place.


Automatically Organizes Your Entire Project
Visual Engineer’s build-in design management system automatically organizes your electrical systems design so that information for any component, wire or connection may be searched in seconds.


Automatically Checks Drawings for Errors and Consistency
Visual Engineer automatically checks each drawing for design errors, consistency, and inter-connects compatibility with other drawings within the project. It features over one hundred error checking algorithms specific to avionics systems integration on aircraft completions.


Automatically Generates Bill of Materials Accurately
Visual Engineer provides features that automatically manage product bill of materials. In seconds, Equipment, Equipment Accessories, Connectors, Contacts and Wiring requirements are accurately calculated and can be easily shared across your organization or supply chain.


Automatically Manages Reference Designators and Wire Numbers
Visual Engineer automatically manages and formats Equipment Reference designators and Wire Numbers. The reference designators and wire numbers may be formatted to Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream or any OEM or completion center’s standards.


Automatically Keeps Your Drawings Current
As component part numbers, locations or other attributes change throughout the design cycle, Visual Engineer automatically updates all drawings, technical publications and reports that are affected, eliminating inconsistencies and design errors typically encountered during an aircraft completion.


Automatically Tracks Drawing Revision and Change History
Visual Engineer’s built in change management system maintains a history of changes made to each drawing. Revision descriptions and changes are automatically created and other documents, such as equipment list, wire list, and bill of materials reflect these changes with intuitive revision bars and mark-ups.


Automatically Compare Drawings
Visual Engineer’s built-in change management system automatically compares differences between drawings or across entire projects to ensure consistency is maintained for each completion.


Automatically Manages Connector and Terminal Block Availability
Visual Engineer automatically manages connector, contact and terminal block availability. In second’s an engineer can determine which contact in a connector is available or which drawing it is used on.


Automatically Identifies Connector Back-shells, Contacts and Other Accessories
Visual Engineer automatically provides the engineer with a list of approved back-shells, contacts and other accessories for each component maintaining consistency and accuracy throughout the design cycle.
