The design and manufacture of a new commercial aircraft is extremely complicated, expensive, and risky. The development can cost billions of dollars and last up to ten years before the new plane enters service. Increasing electro-mechanical complexity and density makes aircraft design especially challenging and resource intensive. Electronics govern a majority of the critical systems in next generation planes, like flight control actuation, cabin pressurization, and wing de-icing. The computers, sensors, and wiring needed to connect and control these systems will come to dominate the interior of the airframe. Cabin amenities add even more wiring due to increasing demands for entertainment and communication systems. Aircraft must also support extensive redundancies to prevent individual system failures from causing catastrophe. The electrical wiring and interconnect systems (EWIS) regulations, set forth by the FAA, outline standards for the design, implementation and maintenance of...
