Heavy Equipment & Off Highway Vehicles

Digitalization for Heavy Equipment Industry 4.0

Heavy equipment manufacturers are developing high-performance machinery with new sensor technology and alternative materials. Along with the need to extend the product lifecycle, manufacturers face many challenges: global competition, multi-site manufacturing, compressed development cycles, total-cost-of-ownership reductions, fuel economy, and regulatory emissions standards. These challenges require an integrated set of design, simulation and manufacturing tools that are managed in a unified and integrated environment.

These challenges require an integrated set of design, simulation and manufacturing tools that are managed in a unified and integrated environment.

Digitalization for the heavy equipment industry

The pace of digitalization is unprecedented. It's all enabled by digital threads that turn silo data into connected disciplines and processes. These threads form the neural network of a digital twin -- a virtual entity that mirrors the physical world, turning data into insight to continuously design, build and optimize throughout the product and production lifecycle.

Électrification

Poussé par la nécessité de réduire les émissions et le bruit, le marché des équipements lourds effectue une transition vers des systèmes de propulsion hybrides, électriques et même à hydrogène. Cette évolution a un impact sur toutes les étapes de la chaîne d'approvisionnement. Ces technologies nouvellement déployées dans le secteur des équipements lourds ont un impact important sur le processus d'ingénierie. Définir la conception d'une machine électrifiée la plus optimale est complexe et nécessite que les ingénieurs apprennent et fassent progresser leur expertise dans un nouveau domaine. Cette conception doit également permettre aux utilisateurs finaux dans le domaine de la construction, de l'agriculture ou de l'exploitation minière d'atteindre, voire, de dépasser les niveaux de performance habituels tout en garantissant que la machine respecte les normes plus strictes en matière de bruit et d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre.

    Heavy Equipment Industry Challenges

    From agriculture to construction, mining, and material handling, heavy equipment is undergoing a shift in sophistication. This includes enhanced integration with the manufacturing operating environment.

    Changing design requirements, from more powerful powertrains to complex load cases and operating conditions, challenge single-discipline simulation and analysis tools. Software-driven product features, functions, and operating systems are becoming more complex, requiring integration with IoT sensors and increased emphasis on software validation and revision management. The integration extends to the manufacturing floor and supply chain, driving the need for increased, closed-loop quality with a focus on operating costs and waste reduction.

    Heavy Equipment Solutions

    Sophistication and interoperability among design, simulation, manufacturing, and service operations, without compromising speed or data integrity, are critical to industry success. Advanced design solutions expand part conceptualization beyond conventional 3D approaches. This allows designers to take advantage of generative design and additive manufacturing methods to create innovative and material-efficient components. Improved analysis capabilities provide electro, hydraulic and mechanical simulation that seamlessly extends to 3D load cases.

    A single-source data management system is essential to managing the different forms and data created, while keeping a focus on engineering, manufacturing, and product life BOM. Our solutions for the heavy equipment industry help you excel in challenging and dynamic environments and deliver innovative products while decreasing the total cost of ownership.
