Questions and Answers for SEE Electrical Expert a leading Electrical CAD software
Q: Is SEE Electrical Expert better than SEE Electrical?
A: V4R1 has a more complex set of methods for deciding how elements are handled in the drawings. It also links into PLM and 3D harness modules to continue other parts of the design. Also, if you’re working as part of a large project, SEE Electrical Expert may be specified and an environment containing all the expected standards and symbols may have been produced. This can save a whole load of time setting things up. This is less likely with See Electrical, which is a lower cost control system design package, though very capable in itself.
Q: Does SEE Electrical Expert include the harness package?
A: For SEE Electrical ‘Expert’ the packages normally sold are ‘Control Package’ or ‘Harness Package’. You choose one or the other. The harness package includes the controls, synoptic (single line), and cabling modules.
Q: My requirements include life cycle management, block diagram, schematic, 3D Catia design and harness drawing for production. Which product would you recommend?
A: it sounds like the SEE Electrical Expert product would be the most suitable.
