From construction & mining to agricultural and forestry machinery, manufacturers not only face challenges related to product design, but also product manufacture, product assembly, and even product operations. Their aim is to deliver safer, cleaner and more productive machinery and equipment. Doing this at controlled cost and within set lead times. While committing to maximum productivity and uptime for the toughest usage conditions.

Join us for a webinar series to learn more about how to achieve early confidence in product performance, realize efficient enterprise-wide collaboration and ensure first time right physical prototyping.

Deliver Safe, Clean, Productive Machinery & Equipment

Digital Transformation of your Product Performance Lifecycle,through the virtual prototyping of key product and process validations, accelerates product development processes. Establishing a Virtual Proving Ground, Pilot Assembly Hall, and Virtual Service Maintenance Garage to assess upcoming products requires more than a series of disconnected, discrete simulations or deterministic analyses.

Join us in our upcoming webinar series, where we will address how the Heavy Industry can design, test, and validate upcoming products for operational comfort & Safety, validate the integration of power, control, and mechanical systems.

Ultimately enabling them to deliver safe, clean, and productive new machinery & equipment designs proven to meet the highest quality requirements and lifetime performance for the toughest usage conditions. 

Electrification of Heavy Machinery: Challenges & Solutions

DATE: June 24th    TIME: 3pm CET/9am ET    LENGTH: 1h

Sustainable electrification for industrial and off-highway machines

Sustainability is a common motivation of electrification in industrial and off-highway machines. Electrification impact on sustainability can be viewed from several perspectives; reduce emissions and carbon footprint, lower cost of ownership, systems simplification or optimization, reduction/reconfiguration of physical footprint, or merely engineering a MORE DESIREABLE PRODUCT, to list a few.

However, converting traditionally combustion powered industrial machines and vehicles is not a matter of simply removing the combustion engine to be replaced with batteries and electric motors. Engineering these novel products for delivering customer required outcomes requires holistic evaluation of potential machine performance and efficiency, as well as anticipation of product integration, assembly, and service requirements.  

In this webinar we will address engineering challenges and questions that arise in the system specification and modelling of electric commercial vehicles and industrial machines. Ranging from systems modelling of the electric/mechanical systems that power the machines to the human-centric validation of the assembly process requirements and service maintenance procedures for these yet to be realized or replicated product variants

    Operational Safety & Comfort

    ACCESSIBLE ON-DEMAND      LENGTH: 1h

    Delivering successful new products for the construction, mining, and agriculture industries requires delivering machinery products that are Safe, Clean, and Productive. However, informing the design and engineering decisions required to assure success without access to the actual product is a challenge remaining in most companies' digital transformation.  

    Many deterministic methods of testing and evaluating products are discrete simulations of specific conditions meant as a proxy to real world conditions. While these types of tests are highly illustrative and better than not performing the tests at all, they still occasionally fall short of what is learned when those products are rolled out to actual construction sites, farms or forests, and mines. 

    Join us on April 8th, during a webinar where we will discuss how leading enterprises are applying virtual prototyping to gain necessary holistic product analysis insights. Ultimately assuring the delivery of Safe, Clean, and Productive machinery for their customers mines, farms, forests, and construction sites.

    Human Centric Product & Process Validation

    ACCESSIBLE ON-DEMAND    LENGTH: 1h

    The digitalization of product design and engineering is well accepted and practiced in most Heavy Machinery & Equipment engineering organizations—especially for those design attributes which have quantifiable standards and limits. Although when it comes to ergonomics and impact of human factors, until people can walk around, climb on, sit in, and take assemble-disassemble-reassemble the actual product, we often don’t know what to assess and what is acceptable or not.

    Operating, assembling, or servicing a first-of-its-kind product or implementing new methods, we often can’t know what it is that we don’t know about that product— operators will face these challenges when interacting with products they have yet to experience. For this reason, assembly process planning has long relied on pre-production prototyping and assembly piloting to allow workers to experience and evaluate proposed assembly processes and tooling. Similarly, service and maintenance planning are most often based on previous products history or require service teardown workshops conducted on the pre-production prototypes.

    Machine Performance & Productivity

    AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND     LENGTH: 1h

    As digitalization of engineering validation workflows accelerates, the replacement of physical prototypes and pre-production products has escalated possible gaps in product development. Namely, the lack of physical testing at the product proving grounds to inform product development. For products with higher capital costs, lower planned production volumes, and diverse applications, this raises the potential that product performance attributes might be tested in less than realistic conditions. Evaluating the potential durability of future products operated in rough terrain or even misused is not only financially impractical, but increasingly logistically improbable.  

    Implementing Virtual Proving Grounds, where analysis of disparate simulation methodologies can be considered more holistically between Model Based Systems Engineering, non-linear performance analysis includes manufacturing impact, is an emerging trend among leading enterprises. Conducting “hands-on” product evaluations of the product virtually, can inform engineers to product requirements similar to interacting with pre-production prototypes or mock-ups.
