VEC 1.4 Tutorials

Examples for the proper use of the VEC Model


The VDA recommendation 4968 “Vehicle Electric Container (VEC)” defines an information model, a data dictionary, and an XML schema derived from and compliant to the model.

The intention of the model was to cover a wide range of use cases and application scenarios. For this reason the specification have to be kept generic in some degree.

To avoid dialects in VEC implementations further guidelines or recommendations are necessary. This document contributes to the unambiguous interpretation of the VEC standard. For various wiring harness definition or electrical system aspects the correct instantion is shown.
