UD Trucks to Introduce New Data Platform

UD Trucks has reached an agreement with PTC Japan to introduce a new data platform that will enhance its engineering and supply chain capabilities for the digital age.

UD Trucks has a strong track record of digitising processes and ways of working, in an effort to consistently add value to its products and services.

This digital transformation has led to the introduction of data management systems that result in better production planning and quality control.

UD Trucks has been working closely with PTC to better utilise data in the fields of engineering and supply chains.

UD Trucks introduced PTC‘s Creo 3DCAD software solution and Windchill enterprise product lifecycle management (PLM) software to construct a digital model that detects problems early in the design stage. These products help achieve higher levels of quality and efficiency.

UD Trucks has also introduced PTC‘s Service Knowledge, Diagnostics (SKD), and other services to consolidate product information and communication between manufacturing and sales divisions.

With the ever increasing pace of change and uncertainty in today’s business environment, UD Trucks has intensified its digital transformation journey by partnering with PTC Japan.

UD Trucks has adopted PTC‘s ThingWorx factory IoT platform and Vuforia Studio, Vuforia Instruct, and Vuforia Chalk, AR solutions for design, manufacturing, sales, and after-sales service.

UD Trucks already uses VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) tools in its design processes. Together with PTC, UD Trucks will strengthen its data-sharing infrastructure, that can, for example, apply digital twin to prototype testing to more quickly identify problems and make modifications.

Keiki Ka, Vice President, Head of Digital Solutions & IT, UD Trucks, said: ”Our digital transformation is not only about digitising analog processes but transforming our core businesses and corporate culture to better serve society. In other words living up to Better Life purpose, to make life better for all stakeholders. By partnering with PTC, we are excited to embark on the next phase of our digital journey in the areas of engineering and supply chains.”

PTC seeks to deliver a meaningful contribution to UD Trucks by maximising a seamless engineering data platform encompassing design to after-sales and our field support platform that utilises IoT and AR. In addition, PTC looks forward to working closely with UD Trucks in the DX-related businesses over the long term.
