Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Dramatically improve simulation and manufacturing efficiency by using convergent modeling technology to leverage engineering CAD models. Convergent modeling allows engineering changes to be instantly reflected in simulation and CAM models.
Leverage synchronous technology to streamline your data migration from 2D to 3D, allowing you to model your entire loader, harvester or load truck more efficiently and up to three times faster.
Evaluate complex machine designs during design validation by loading thousands of parts into a single, fast loading, and responsive assembly. Include neutral files without conversion to CAD, work in the context of the entire assembly and create digital mockups as you design.
Position sensors, lights, motors, drives enclosures, and other electrical elements accurately on the equipment. Develop and communicate wire harness design routing, while synchronizing real-time with electrical and controls schematics.
Fully document every component in the machine, from the welded structural mechanism elements to the critical pivot and cylinder bushings with 3D CAD model annotations to identify critical to quality dimensions.
Efficiently author, validate and communicate the bolted joint requirements of complex assemblies, especially those related to critical design joints and historical fatigue locations to tune factory and field assembly procedures.
Leverage integrated simulation tools early in equipment mechanism development to confidently bring structurally sound, qualified designs for selection. Allow less-experienced engineers to evaluate concepts as the design evolves and before use cases become more complex.
Extend the core machine design CAD model to build complex, configured product line solutions that adhere to global data and process requirements. Produce serial number-specific custom bills of material.
Define, document and model welds in your critical machine structures. Leverage simulation analyses that incorporate weld material. Capture information for use in manufacturing, such as 2D drawing notations.
Construction, mining and agricultural machinery is rapidly becoming more sophisticated, with changes being driven by the competitive landscape and as well as customer requirements for increased functionality and performance at a lower total cost of ownership. Mechanism designs must be smarter, more responsive, and economical, in addition to possessing the durability expected. Machinery platform designs must be capable of massive configuration options to support customization to a lot size of one. At the same time, manufacturers must, while providing increased increase part reuse and common design approaches to drive down production cost.
With increasingly complex design requirements and a globally competitive market, you need the most powerful, versatile and flexible tools for rapidly transforming concepts to marketable, cost-effective machinery. Leverage integrated analysis and simulation to help define robust use cases to validate boom and crawl reactions that accurately predict durability performance for repetitive dig, plow and swing cycles.
Enable your teams the tools they need to unleash innovation and explore Construction, Agriculture, and Mining product capability with the most productive, interactive, and intuitive design and simulation tools. Take advantage of the most robust suite of large model and visualization tools to validate your entire machine through each step of the design cycle.
