Wire-harness design and fabrication were a particular problem because not only is the L-1011 a large aircraft, but it has installed in it many complex and sophisticated electronic systems that were not available for earlier aircraft projects. A computer-based system for the design and fabrication of aircraft wiring is described. The system has two engineering databases: a wire-list database of point-to-point wiring information and a computer graphics database of system intercommection schematics. The wire list and schematics are compared by computer to ensure error-free engineering data. Two additional databases, one which determines fabrication sequence and another which controls and schedules the release of fabrication documents, complete the system. The wire list and fabrication sequence databases are combined to produce all documents required to fabricate, test and install wiring harnesses.
