Engineering design processes demand tight integration between every tool in the process. Interoperability is a major driving force for companies, and Capital Enterprise Management provides the interfaces needed to satisfy those requirements.
Customize via the API
Control Capital's user interface design, provisions of custom actions, custom design rule checks, custom reporting and many other parts of the process with APIs.
Access intelligent automated styling
Use Capital Diagram Style Manager, one of the Enterprise Management tools, to create a library of different drawing styles to suit particular end users. Change styles at the touch of a button. Styles can also process design data to intelligently adapt or reconfigure to suit the design data. For example, recolor any wires that are integral to a device, or generate and display a signal table beside every device if it is an electronic control unit (ECU).
Synchronize component libraries at multiple sites
Use another Enterprise Management tool, Capital Library Synchronizer, to help companies with geographically dispersed Capital installations get automated synchronization of component library data. Access full support for scheduling and component change tracking at the individual attribute level, including the time, site and librarian identity, using process management facilities.
Implement environment management
Managing the deployment environment is important to ensure a performant system. Use Workload Balancer to automate and optimize user and machine performance.
Deploy web viewer of designs and data
Use Capital E/E Reporter to get web access to Capital design data including diagrams and reports. This allows wide-scale access to electrical design data without needing specialized knowledge of the Capital tools. Standard facilities include project and design browsing, intelligent diagrams with hyperlinked cross-references and access to all attribute data, AutoView diagram generation to create custom diagrams, and the generation of reports such as component lists, bill of materials (BOMs) and design comparisons.
Apply API facility and web services integration with other systems
Apply the Capital API facility, which includes control over the user interface design, provision of custom actions, custom design rule checks, custom reporting, and many other parts of the process. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) web service technology provides interfaces at many key gateways into the Capital electrical design tools allowing Capital to interoperate with other systems such as component libraries, purchasing and costing systems.
