ECAD Implementor Forum (ECAD IF)


since 2000


The support of cross-company exchange of vehicle electric information is one of the major aims of prostep ivip.

The objective of the ECAD Implementor Forum (ECAD IF) is to provide support to system vendors and users for implementations based on the VDA recommendation Vehicle Electric Container (VEC, VDA 4968) and its predecessors Harness Description List (KBL, VDA 4964), ELOG, KOMP and GEO. To do this, workshops are held and implementers are given support and advice regarding implementation of the VEC, KBL etc. Furthermore, the results achieved by the prostep ivip / VDA Project Group PDM for Vehicle Electric Systems (PDM4VES) are reviewed, and sample files and test files are published.

The ECAD wiki provides information about the activities conducted by prostep ivip and the VDA in connection with wiring harnesses and electrical systems. Besides background information on the processes and methods used to develop electrical systems, as well as on the related technologies, the wiki also provides VEC tutorials.
