The image of 3 ‘same but different’ trailers has become synonymous with DriveWorks. Therefore we have created a demo showing just how quick and easy it can be to configure new trailer variations using DriveWorks.
This example is a great demonstration of how, when a project is set-up by an engineer or designer who truly understands the technical elements to the product, countless configurations can be run through by less mechanically-minded people (like myself).
So, I am going to run through the project from a sales person point of view, who is trying to encourage a potential client to buy their trailers from my trailer manufacturing company.
Here is the quick and easy process to make any configuration of trailer using the DriveWorks Live demo site:
So, as you can see, in fewer than 10 steps (and less than 5 minutes), I have been able to create the perfect trailer for my client. I have been able to show them a 3D preview of their product, and give them a precise price for their item, along with branded and complete sales documents. Next, I can send along all drawings and a bill of materials to the manufacturing department and the build can begin. This could all be put into place in under 10 minutes – and (after the initial set-up of the project) does not require any of the engineers/designers time, freeing them up to focus on more innovative and bespoke projects.
Proof of DriveWorks benefitting a trailer company:
“The time we are gaining from freeing up the engineering team is now used proactively in research and development. The result is new designs such as our revolutionary, new articulated trailer, whose teardrop shape reduces CO2 emissions by 20%, when compared to a standard cab-trailer fleet operation.”
