The process method shall be considered completely and implemented systematically in assembly of spacecraft products due to complicated structure and high integration and coupling of mechanical, electric and heat characteristics. An application method based on 3D digital simulation technology in assembly of the spacecraft is proposed in this paper and some tests are implemented for verification. This method proposes a brand-new solution means for installation of complicated products in model development. This method features extensive promotion and application significance and can effectively improve assembly efficiency and quality of spacecrafts.
