Truck & Bus Modularization

Transportation executives need to adapt their fleet to meet their constantly evolving challenges: new safety and environmental regulations, changing economic conditions, aggressive competition. They rely on OEMs for fast and innovative solutions but not all manufacturers compete on equal grounds. Those that deliver performance, reliability and quality at the best cost remain ahead of the pack.

Truck & Bus Modularization helps OEMs rapidly configure and deliver customized vehicles to their clients that meet their many requirements. The solution delivers a smart and fast way to rapidly assemble a vehicle in a virtual environment using predefined components before actual production. Thanks to this modular approach, manufacturers can create a large number of variants to satisfy a wide range of customer needs. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, designers and engineers from multiple disciplines collaborate on a single referential of up-to-date geometry in real time. This reduces downstream errors that discovered in the later stages can drive up costs and delay delivery of the final product to the customer.

Key capabilities and benefits:

  • Maximize asset reuse by leveraging a modular architecture for product engineering, manufacturing, marketing and sales
  • Relative positioning of all components in order to simplify assembly management and fit any business need
  • Quick access to any possible configuration of a commercial vehicle
  • Quick validation of a tailored commercial vehicle’s digital mock-up in a virtual environment
  • Improved quality and reliability as components are studied by multiple engineering disciplines in real time
