British Bus and Coach Builder Alexander Dennis Chooses Zuken's CAD Software
 

Tokyo, Jan 9, 2013 (JCN) - Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL), Britain's largest bus and coach manufacturer, has recently adopted Zuken's leading electrical and fluid CAD software, E3.series. They will use E3.series to help drive process change for electrical system and harness design.

A key factor in ADL's decision was E3.series' object-oriented architecture, which will enable the company to create smart drawings which feed all stages of the design process, including manufacturing and purchasing. Zuken's PDM adaptor (ZPA) will integrate electrical design and part data with Siemens TeamCenter, ADL's chosen PLM tool.

An additional factor was E3.series' built-in capacity for design process evolution; as process needs change, the system can be developed to keep up with new requirements.

E3.series will enhance the accuracy, consistency and availability of Alexander Dennis' data, helping them meet the future challenges of competitive product development and manufacturing.

ADL is the fastest-growing bus business in the western world, having tripled turnover in the past five years to GBP500m, extending its reach with build partnerships, joint ventures and acquisitions in territories such as Hong Kong, China, Australia, New Zealand and North America.

Zuken, based in Yokohama, Japan, operates an overseas production subsidiary in England and sales subsidiaries in the US, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Korea, and Singapore.
