The article presents mathematical formulation of the problem of synthesizing the image of complex harnesses as an integral part of the on-board complex of aircraft equipment. This problem arises in the design of the on-board cable network of each individual aircraft. The article describes the language that we use to form the basis of applied methods for synthesizing the structures of a set of objects, irrespective of their specific nature, but taking into account their relative position and their properties that are characterized by various features. The article poses the problem of synthesizing a complex bundle in a closed form and proposes an algorithm for solving it. In the work, a matrix of relations between the set of objects and the set of their attributes is compiled. As applied to simple on-board cable bundles, features are introduced and their qualitative values are described that characterize the variety and complexity of the objects under study. Using the example of ten simple cabin harnesses of an arbitrary aircraft, an example is given of compiling a matrix of relations between objects and features, ranked in a certain order. Based on algorithms for comparing the values of attributes, a conclusion is drawn on the aggregation of objects into classes, among which the combination of simple bundles into a complex one is most appropriate.
