Design and build heavy-duty construction, mining, and farm equipment that stands up to the toughest challenges

Workflow for mining, agriculture, and construction equipment design

Overview

Demonstrate capabilities before actually building anything, and design and analyze concepts in early stages to reduce errors. Maintain traceability from requirements through development and final delivery, designing new products and implementing processes with optimal efficiency.

Workflow

Products

  • Sales engineering

    Respond to RFPs quickly and accurately to win projects and grow your business.

    Automate the order and bid process right at the point of sale by providing easy-to-use tools for capturing business and engineering rules. 

  • Concept/design layout

    Save significant time during conceptual design by reusing existing 2D and 3D designs as starting points for your new design concepts.

    Design and capture 2D and 3D concepts, and reduce barriers to communication and collaboration when working with non-native 3D models from customers.

  • Detailed mechanical & electrical design

    Produce accurate, integrated mechanical and electrical models to design and simulate products before they are built, and automate tedious design tasks.

    Quickly create accurate, standards-compliant drawings from your 3D designs with automated drawing creation tools. 

    Automate the process of 3D modeling and documentation based on rules for configuring new products.

    Easily control, manage, find, and reuse design data and product information with complete product management capabilities.

  • Simulation

    Optimize products for performance and material cost, resulting in fewer physical prototypes.

    Reduce reliance on costly physical prototypes by simulating real-world product use cases digitally.

    Improve product quality, and reduce support and warranty claims by optimizing designs prior to manufacturing.

  • Marketing communications

    Create high-quality renderings and movies from CAD models to help market and sell your designs.

    Illustrate your products and industrial electronics equipment within the context of your customers' factories to differentiate you from the competition and win more business.

    Easily manage the most up-to-date design and engineering data so non-CAD users can more effectively access the correct product information.

  • Manufacturing & production

    Design, optimize, and communicate the most efficient factory layout. Analyze digital factory models before installing equipment to reduce risks.

    Publish interactive, 3D assembly instructions directly from your CAD data to better communicate with manufacturing teams and avoid costly assembly errors.

    Reduce manufacturing and design errors with revision control to help ensure that everyone is working with the latest, released design data.

  • Install & commissioning

    Meet performance, schedule, budget, and customer expectations for new or retrofit production lines.

    Provide mobile access to interactive, 3D assembly instructions so that field technicians, sales teams, and customers have the information they need.

    Create and provide access to consistent documentation to help ensure that production lines install efficiently and at reduced costs.

  • Services & support

    Increase efficiency and productivity with access to factory 2D documentation for maintenance and repair.

    Reduce potential costly repair errors by providing access to the most accurate and interactive service instructions.

    Document and track maintenance and repair schedules.
