MAN aims to significantly reduce product development time

MAN Truck & BUS Rear Axle Development Time

The rear axle of a bus has to bear particularly heavy loads. For this reason, it has a sophisticated structure which is complex and costly to manufacture. Therefore the goal was to optimize the existing design of the rear axle in terms of performance, lightweight design requirements and production.

MAN Truck & Bus works continuously on improving efficiency in all areas. That obviously includes the product development process. For this project specifically, the goal was to optimize the existing design of the rear axle in terms of performance, lightweight design requirements and production.

Thanks to ELISE’s generative engineering approach, a number of different design concepts for the rear axle could be developed quickly – and the final product ist significantly lighter.

“In the future, we expect to reduce the development time of the finished component with this software by up to 50 %,” Michel Troitzsch, concept engineer in project “Disruptive bus concepts” at MAN pre-development explains.
