Collaborative Manufacturing for Heavy Equipment

Collaborative Manufacturing for Heavy Equipment

Our collaborative manufacturing solution helps you unify global design, engineering and manufacturing teams so they are able to work on the same requirements, models and manufacturing process plans, while having the flexibility to meet local requirements. In this collaborative environment, you benefit from better simulation and optimization of manufacturing planning, optimized design and manufacturing processes, and manufacturing intelligence connected with product development.

Our collaborative manufacturing solution enables you to shift the design and development of manufacturing processes upstream, so they can be interlocked with product design and development on a Digital Innovation Platform, to manage ongoing manufacturing operations into a single, controlled environment. 

Heavy equipment manufacturing boasts some of the most complex bills of material (BOM) in manufacturing. Our solution controls the manufacturing process and ongoing operational efficiency and quality by optimizing bill of process (BOP), schedule management and quality measurement systems. This includes restructuring materials to optimize material flow through the factory and field assembly, while managing global manufacturing product and facility variations. By creating and managing the production schedule, including logistics challenges, visual scheduling tools include the actual BOP for full traceability to the product BOM.

Developing comprehensive quality plans can be a challenge over global manufacturing plants and at multiple points in the assembly validation process. It requires a system that links product quality requirements to the manufacturing steps in the BOP.

Being able to efficiently manage multiple variants and ensuring that assembly lines achieve a leveled production flow are ongoing challenges in the heavy equipment industry. By leveraging early lifecycle process information across a wide range of simulation tools, you can evaluate the cycle time of a production line, equalize workload among stations, and validate upfront manufacturing processes for common mixed-model production scenarios.

With collaborative manufacturing, engineers, line workers and managers on the shop floor are key parts of the PLM process. Capabilities from process simulation are easily visualized in work instruction, leading to rapid adoption of new manufacturing methods. Workers can access all data relevant to their activities and provide feedback in context of the design and manufacturability of the product.

Our solutions connect design, engineering and manufacturing, globally unifying product design and development to make manufacturing collaborative and strategic. The end result is that you can thrive in today’s complex business environment.
