Rail Vehicles

Light rail vehicles (trams and city railways) are increasingly used to reduce traffic – trams and city railways are experiencing a global renaissance because they offer sustainable solutions to urban challenges. 
As requirements differ all around the world, they stimulate complexity in all fields, not only concerning supplier structures and assembly processes. 
  • Comprehensive ranges of products and services are created – how can we use modularization to significantly reduce engineering costs?
  • How do we reduce historically established requirements and increase reutilization?
  • How do we define precise intersections and, therefore, enable the transfer of development packages to system suppliers?
Modular product platforms effectively reduce technical and organizational complexity. The number of suppliers can be reduced – leading to more efficient procurement and logistics processes. Less variance and higher quantities save material costs. Modular assembly significantly reduces the assembly costs.
