To become a leader in any industry requires having the right tools to transform how products are created and sold. Industrial equipment companies are using systems-driven environments with smarter and connected equipment to deliver customized products with accelerated time-to-market and competitive prices.
Soosan Heavy Industries, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hydraulic breakers, demolition attachments, crawler drills and truck mounted cranes, is further developing its core technologies and R&D efforts to deliver cutting-edge products and gain a competitive advantage over other industry players.
Soosan selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® platform and Single Source for Speed to help improve performance, reduce development costs and improve time-to-market. This intuitive system provides a single environment for design, collaborative innovation and project management.
HOW SOOSAN IS USING 3DEXPERIENCE
Before using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Soosan’s average new product development time was two and a half years. They reduced that by about 40% – which is even more than they had originally planned. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows more than 50 employees from different departments to collaborate, and be confident they are always working the on the latest version of a design. This allows everyone to update design changes as they are being made, which increases speed and accuracy. Soosan can also now verify product performance in a digital environment, eliminating the need to produce expensive physical prototypes. In addition, defects are detected early during digital simulations.
Soosan’s future goal is to allow their suppliers to access the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and contribute to the design process to prepare for manufacturing. This is a key step in helping them advance their ambition to transform Soosan Heavy Industries into a champion of industrial equipment manufacturing.
