Abstract

Development of an Expert System for Cable Harness Design P. Mehta Department of Engineering,Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, G4 0BA, pme@gcal.ac.uk ABSTRACT Cable harnesses in systems such as computers, aeroplanes and automobiles are usually the longest parts of the systems and major contributors to EMC related and other problems. However currently, the design of cable harness is an after thought in the design of the whole system. Design of cable harnesses is normally a manual process and a performance study of individual cables is not undertaken. Any problems which arise are addressed after the whole system design has been completed by which time the remedy for theses problems becomes more difficult. The ability to predict performance of cables at the early design stage would lead to a better overall design of the system. In association with a Teaching Company Scheme, a joint research programme was launched to investigate the possibility of computerising the process of designing cable ha
