The VOBES LCable tool is based on the standard software Mentor Graphics Logical Cable. It is a software environment for developing, analyzing and documenting wiring diagrams of the electrical domain within vehicle construction. The software Logical Cable is used for specifying parts as well electrical connections and wiring.
VOBES LCable consists of the Logical Cable standard software and the VOBES LCable Userware, a complementing software suite. This suite implements the requirements of the Volkswagen AG in this field of on-board network development.
VOBES LCable is used for creating and editing the system schematics (SYS). This schmatic documents the components and the connections of an electrical system. The wiring diagram (KAB) is used to create and edit wiring harnesses based on system schematics. This includes defining and documenting electric wires, assigning contact parts and connector housings as well as defining variants and modules for harness production. All parts and components used in the system schematics and the wiring diagrams are provided by a specific parts library (CLS). The activities with the VOBES LCable tool result in a 150% wiring diagram.
For more information please see the tool documentation. The necessary part libraries and project structures are the responsibility of the Volkswagen AG. Please ask your Volkswagen AG project owner or contact for access to this information.
