Volvo Trucks Technology will speak under the topic: Virtual next – building knowledge about current PLM support for complex products.

The use of digital product models has a major impact on the development processes in the manufacturing in-dustry. However, none of the PLM vendors had so far been judged to meet Volvo’s needs in the truck domain for 3D documentation and collaboration, because of the product’s variety driving geometrical complexity. Is this still true?

The truck divisions in the Volvo Group set up a learning project to understand the current state. The target was to observe how current main suppliers support 3D product documentation and manufacturing preparation of a truck. In this presentation we will describe how we carried out this project and the learnings made.

Speakers: Jeanette Nilsson, Business Sub Portfolio Manager CAD VPDM and Configuration Daniel Adin, Senior Business Consultant.

The mix of great presentations with an open and friendly atmosphere
has over the years become a landmark of PDT Europe. It is an excellent opportunity to learn from others, share your ideas, and to discuss with likeminded.
