Abstract

In collaboration with Shanghai University, our project team developed an integrated methodology for simplifying the design of the rear wheel arch panel for all standard 980H medium wheel loaders at Caterpillar's Suzhou Product Group. In addition, we developed a special design configuration that includes a 100mm hole for fire-hose access in case of emergency. Furthermore, we provided lean solutions to some of the problems associated with packaging and transporting the part throughout the facility.
