Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Deliver greater innovation at higher quality and lower cost with comprehensive 3D cab design. Let our integrated and intuitive solution suite of broad and deep best-in-class capabilities enable your design team to balance operator functionality and safety with comfort and style. Quickly identify and design the high-strength structural cab exterior while determining the best solutions for operator visibility. Locate all the control and interface devices in a logical arrangement, recognizing the parallel needs of operator ergonomics along with multiple configurations and selection of customer-specified components. Create the most intuitive and flexible cab configurations with distinctive style and brand identity.
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Create new cab welded structural framework and overall designs up to three times faster and more efficiently. Enable designers to explore multiple ergonomic layouts with a broad and deep modeling ecosystem.
Evaluate complex cab configuration options during design validation by loading them into a single assembly. Validate configurations and optimize seat orientation and display/control device positions within a digital mock-up.
Locate electronic components – displays, cameras, controls – and design the cable harnesses to support connections back to the power panels, synchronizing with both schematic and cable lengths, colors, and leads.
Fully document every component in the operator cab, including structural weldments, molded and purchased parts using 3D CAD model annotations to identify critical-to-quality dimensions.
Leverage product line content, sharing seats, displays, operator controls, ergonomic requirements, and common part libraries to maximize part reuse. Ensure cab arrangements have the same look and feel across product lines.
Design innovative seat systems utilizing an efficient and productive 3D CAD environment. Easily develop and verify designs for style, safety and comfort with a complete digital product definition of your seats and trim products.
Leverage integrated simulation tools in cab development to optimize ride comfort through thermal, noise and vibration analysis. Take advantage of early analysis during the design phase, before use cases become more complex.
Extend core cab CAD design to build complex product line configurations. Produce bills of material that define features like product trim, display and control selections, RH/LH options and account for regional safety requirements.
Perform advanced nonlinear bucking analysis of the high-strength cab structure in the design phase. Determine survivability for rollover, crash and foreign object impact conditions.
Operator cabins in mining, construction and agricultural equipment are rapidly changing to become a true command center, from the inclusion of more electronics and autonomous functions to increasing demands for greater operator visibility, structural safety and comfort. Cabin designers need styling tools that are integrated with traditional CAD-driven design approaches so they can develop and evaluate multiple design opportunities and quickly arrive at the perfect combination of utility and style that sets your cabins apart from the competition.
Empower your design teams by giving them the most creative and productive approach for cab development. With unmatched power, versatility and flexibility, our solution allows designers to explore solutions that would previously been cost- or time-prohibitive, including material selections and diverse manufacturing methods. Supporting product design from concept through manufacturing requires an integrated set of tools that preserve data integrity and design intent and also streamline processes.
