The test bench project was completed in compliance with our P2P project approach, which is now reinforced by the Product Engineering Guide "G.I.P". This approach has enabled AMETRA Ingénierie & ANJOU Électronique to work in simultaneous engineering mode to involve all sectors (mechanics, electricity and manufacturing), from the start of the project.
The project team used the client's technical specifications and the technical requirements table drawn up between the client and AMETRA/ANJOU during the CAR stage. The two main entry data were the aircraft's cabling list (1400 end by end lines) and the 3D design of the master boxes.
The main parts of the project were the mechanical integration of the master boxes on the test bench, the 3D cabling with CATIA V5 module EHI, the electrical definition and manufacturing of the test bench. During the design stage, design reviews were organised to process problems and technical constraints, inform the entire AMETRA/ANJOU project team and validate the design. The ANJOU team, during this stage, supplied the equipment required for assembling the test bench in our client's industrial premises.
The scope of this type of global project provides ample feedback for future projects. We have been able to complete a multi-sector project following a simultaneous engineering approach, taking into account all client constraints, to successfully complete a test bench for which the quality of the assembly and cabling was recognised by our client.
