Great Wall Motors standardizes on Mentor Graphics Capital tools after successful deployment on Haval

WILSONVILLE, Ore., Feb. 10, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —   Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) and China's largest SUV and pickup manufacturer Great Wall Motors (GWM) today announced that GWM has standardized on the Mentor Graphics® Capital® electrical design tools. This follows a successful deployment on the Haval SUV model.

GWM has standardized on the Mentor Graphics Capital electrical design tools

The Capital product is an advanced software suite for the electrical systems and wire harness domain. Used by leading automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers worldwide, the Capital tool is built to support the complex demands of integrated processes from initial product definition through electrical system design, harness manufacture and vehicle service.

GWM used Mentor Graphics Capital Logic™, Capital Integrator™ and Capital HarnessXC™ software for electrical system design and integration, and harness design of the Haval SUV. GWM deployed the Mentor® Capital generative flow, a breakthrough in the automation of systems integration. The generative flow automatically merges re-usable system signal connectivity data with physical topologies to synthesize fully-detailed vehicle wiring designs. This removes a huge part of the system integration task, saving time and improving quality. This benefit left GWM engineers free to innovate, for example by investigating a wide range of possibilities to determine the optimum electrical implementation in terms of cost and weight.

"The Capital suite provided a great improvement in data reuse and efficiency of system integration. It is also a practical product cost optimization tool. The benefits GMW will obtain from Capital will be even larger as we use the tools in a yet more sophisticated manner," said Xinhong Zhang, the project manager in Great Wall Motors.

"Using Capital GWM has achieved a very high level of development efficiency," said Nick Smith, business development director of the Mentor Graphics Corporation Integrated Electrical Systems Division. "This puts them in an excellent position as vehicle electrical systems become more complex and time-to-market cycles become ever shorter."
