Visual Engineer automatically generates Equipment List, Wire Stamp List, Wire list, Hookup List and other installation reports; this step of the installation process is completely eliminated.
After the electrical drawings are released to production, the installation teams extract information from each drawing to determine which equipment and wires need to be installed and terminated. Most organizations have individuals who are dedicated to this task. Since the EEMSTM automatically generates Equipment List, Wire Stamp List, Wire list, Hookup List and other installation reports; this step of the installation process is completely eliminated.
It is desirable for cabinet assemblies and other monuments to be pre-wired before installation of these assemblies in the aircraft. This requires the engineers to create cabinet assembly drawings that are basically sub-sets of the system drawings. Under the legacy approach this requires manually going through all drawings, extracting this information and re-drawing that part of the system for each cabinet or monument in the aircraft. For a typical project this can take upwards of 1,000 man hours provided no mistakes are made. This process is repeated when there are changes made to the systems drawings. Visual Engineer automatically generates cabinet assembly data packages that completely eliminate the need to spend costly labor generating this information.
