Electric Drive Trucks – Accelerated Product Devt
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Caterpillar Surface Mining embraces a lean product development system which encompasses key attributes such as engineered value chain, virtual product development , and concurrent engineering to maximize benefits. They are constantly looking for ways to minimize R&E and develop quality products that meet VOC and VOB, and are faster to market to take advantage of emerging opportunities. New Product Introduction (NPI) cycles for large mining trucks typically spanned about 3-4 years. By working closely with a customer/dealer as product development partners, meant this project had to deliver a brand-new truck from concept to completing the first truck build in less than 8 months. This webinar will address the new product introduction cycle.
