Duplicating Harnesses

This task shows you how to duplicate harnesses stored as workpackages (Document kept - Publications Exposed) in ENOVIA.

This command will prove useful for versioning and configuration purposes as well as when re-using existing harnesses.

Open a document stored in ENOVIA.

  1. Click Duplicate Harness .

  2. Select the geometrical bundle or the electrical bundle you want to duplicate.
    aprereq.gif (1223 bytes) You can select:
    • A geometrical bundle previously stored as a workpackage.
    • An electrical bundle, only if the common parent of the electrical bundle and its associated geometrical bundle was stored as a workpackage.

    If your selection does not meet the appropriate requirement, then an error message is displayed.

  3. In the dialog box that appears, enter the suffix to add to new reference harness components.

    The suffix is added to geometrical bundles, electrical bundles, multi-branchable documents and protective coverings, but not to devices and supports.

    A new window appears showing duplicated data. The window with the original data is closed.

  If you duplicated a geometrical bundle, a new geometrical bundle having the same content is generated.

If you duplicated an electrical bundle, a new document containing an electrical bundle and the associated geometrical bundle is generated.


  • All instances of devices, supports, and wires from catalogs are re-instantiated in the new document.
  • All instances of multi-branchable documents, adaptive supports, and protective coverings generate new references that are instantiated in the new document. All relations (constraints, contextual design and electrical connections) are kept.
  • New geometrical bundle and electrical bundle references are generated.
