How digitalization is helping the off-highway equipment industry


How digitalization is helping the off-highway industry create and test ground-breaking vehicle designs

New technologies are popping up in the heavy equipment industry to match new regulations. Exploring all design possibilities and defining innovative development methodologies to offer the market the most suitable and reliable machine is a major challenge.

During this roundtable discussion, panelists from a variety of areas within the off-highway equipment industry will consider how digitalization supports the engineering process and accelerates the development of reliable and high-functioning machines. In fact, orchestrating a new heavy equipment technical program using a smart combination of simulation and testing over the V-cycle enables you to:

  • Save time and development costs before prototyping
  • Accelerate innovation to increase market share
  • Achieve greater productivity at every organizational level
