Title: WIRE HARNESS ROUTE DESIGN METHOD
Abstract:
[Problem] To provide a wire harness route design method which makes it possible to quickly design a wire harness route, without needing to perform an operation that involves directly placing the wire harness on an actual car and adjusting the optimal route. [Solution] A wire harness route design method which involves a step for determining whether or not the wiring of a plurality of wire harnesses in a virtual route space is possible, by: receiving three-dimensional information about a housing, the internal structure of the housing, and a plurality of wiring members, and also receiving harness information; displaying the housing, the internal structure of the housing, and the plurality of wiring members in a three-dimensional virtual space on the basis of the three-dimensional information; forming a virtual route space on the basis of the harness information in the three-dimensional virtual space so as to pass near the plurality of wiring members displayed along a plurality of routes; and searching the virtual route space for an optimal harness route for a plurality of wire harnesses that corresponds to one route selected from among the plurality of routes.
