To be able to approach every subject under Electrical Schematics, such as inserting wires, components, contacts of a component, linking accessories, and others, in a neater way, we created a project to control the direct start of an engine. 

Much like the tool to number terminals, the resource to name components serves for reordering components.

The column’s purpose is identification (Relation, Initial Value and Number), where the Relation is fixed and Initial Value and Number can be edited by the user.
