Abstract

Cable harnesses in systems such as computers, aeroplanes and automobiles are usually the longest parts the major contributors to EMC related problems. However 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 does not involve performance study of individual cables. These problems are addressed when the whole system design has been completed by which time the remedy for these problems becomes more difficult. The ability to predict performance of cables at the early design stage would lead to better overall design of the system. The use of expert systems in other engineering domains has challenged the traditional thinking in the process of cable harness design. A research programme was lunc
