Scania’s Bodybuilding Centre has been set up to support and facilitate bodybuilding at all levels of the bodybuilding process. The cross-functional team of market, R&D, purchasing, production, logistics and sales engineering experts provides support ranging from chassis preparations ex-factory  to logistics and purchasing at business unit level.
Lead time and quality in the bodybuilding process is depending on many parameters where 2D drawings and 3D models has a direct impact on both quality and lead time.
By using 3D models, our bodybuilding partners can produce their bodywork in parallel with Scania producing the chassis.
The 3D models are also utilized for collision analysis to avoid hick ups when it is time for docking the bodywork on to the chassis.
2D drawings and 3D models are provided to the bodybuilder via the Scania truck bodybuilder portal on demand per individual chassis.
