Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Global heavy equipment manufacturers must be compliant with local, national and global governmental requirements for material source and selection, as well as safety and emissions in order to be competitive. Actively managing compliance records and tracing them to the individual component through the product lifecycle is the most effective method to insure your machinery is always compliant.
Our solutions help you insure complete traceability, accuracy and relevance, know that your documents under control reflect the materials incorporated into the machinery, and keep current with ever-changing requirements by incorporating functionality that actively evaluates current requirements.
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Leverage supplier and internal test protocol and performance data to insure that diesel engines manufactured and integrated into heavy equipment perform in accordance with emissions requirements.
Link manufactured and purchased components throughout the Bill of Material to the appropriate materials specified. Trace specific steel chemistry to raw material identification to support manufacturing throughout the product lifecycle.
Ensure accurate material and substance disclosure with automated supplier integration, linking material databases (IMDS, BOMcheck) for the seamless transfer and validation of product materials and declarations in accordance with applicable regulations.
Develop accurate reports for materials used in heavy machinery compared to governmental regulations and custom rules for restricted materials (REACH, RoHS), both local to country of manufacture and destination markets.
Leverage material and substance database content into deep and complex heavy equipment BOMs to consistently and accurately demonstrate visibility and mass of reportable materials rolled up to the top level.
Identify commercial parts within the shovel, tractor or excavator product. Collect material specifications and collaborate with suppliers to provide accurate and current material disclosure reporting, enabling change processes when suppliers change materials.
Develop and deliver reports outlining regulatory compliance and supplier disclosures with tools that generate visibility of gaps in heavy equipment, addressing both country of origin and destination market requirements.
Heavy equipment manufacturers face an increasing wave of compliance requirements from governmental agencies around the world. Requirements are in the form of everything from occupational safety and health requirements, component material traceability (REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals, etc.) to critical emissions controls (Tier 4+). Mining, construction and agricultural equipment suppliers routinely customize machinery to meet national and local market conditions, and are also required to trace compliance for all the components and materials sourced globally. Companies that find themselves noncompliant can face fines, equipment confiscation, and may even be banned from participating in that country or region. Materials used in components change and suppliers can source alternate materials or components, risking the accuracy of the compliance documents.
Our solutions help you extend the value of your PLM data by linking environmental compliance document records directly to the component item or material to insure complete traceability, accuracy and relevance. Further, you can leverage compliance recording and reporting tools to insure the documents under control reflect the materials incorporated into the machinery. In addition, you are able to keep current with ever-changing requirements by incorporating functionality that actively evaluates current requirements.
