A few technologies important to our work, e.g. parallel programming, 3D, OpenHSF, programming languages, Visio, AutoCAD, Medusa, OpenGL and database systems.


Some of our customers including Raychem (now part of TE Connectivity/Tyco Electronics), Lucas Rists (now Leoni Wiring Systems), CADCentre (now Aveva), Cambridge Interactive Systems, Link51 Storage Products, Prodrive, Airbus UK, BOC Process Plants, Caradon Mira, Quadstar, Williams Fairey, Trace Technologies and BICC Supertension Cables.


Comments on various issues e.g. 'Profit through Better Design' and '3D CAD - Is there another way?'.


Details on the HarnWare and HarnVis systems we design and develop for Tyco Electronics. Also information on the electrical signal to connector contact assignment program we are currently developing.


An overview of the HarnConnect system we are designing and developing for Tyco Electronics and which is currently on trial with a major company in the UK. Also some notes on the electrical interconnect design process.

Word cloud

The initial image for this word cloud was generated using Wordle We then edited some of the text and manually added the hotspot hyperlinks.

Electrical harness design software

CAD software to help electrical wiring harness design is now our main focus.

Our software helps component selection, parts listing, labour estimating, cable design, drawing production, 3D visualisation, wire routing, lay-up board design, signal to connector contact assignment, material selection and many other functions.

The above screen shots are from the HarnWare and HarnVis systems we design and develop for Tyco Electronics.
