AOD is state of the art in today’s industry. In contrast to most industrial applications, CAD models of automotive wiring harnesses (AWH) don’t have a 1:1 hardware replication. Therefore, we firstly describe basics of AOD, regarding product structures, component positioning and design methods. Moreover, we show the differences in AWH DMU models. 3D master models (3DMM) need a defined model structure, which is presented in the paper. An integrated approach for the AOD of AWH with 3DMM is introduced and the resulting product structure, model relations and data transfers are analysed in detail.
