CLIK LAYOUT OPTIMIZER (CLIK-LY)
Get the optimal chassis layout in seconds!
Different truck applications, such as delivery, refuse, emergency and construction, demand a concerted effort between body makers and chassis OEM. Lack of integration between them results in a back and forth redesign process that may delay delivery to fleet customers. Emission control systems and the addition of custom components such as pumps make available physical space on the frame scarce. When the layout changes, drivelines must be often redesigned, resulting in more time-consuming engineering rework.
CLIK Layout Optimizer (CLIK-LY) lets engineering dynamically calculate the best possible chassis layout that fits a body and simultaneously find the best driveline. The entire process, layout plus driveline optimization, takes just a few seconds, all without manual intervention. CLIK-LY is based on proprietary optimization algorithms deployed over a parallel computing infrastructure. A customer or dealer can design a truck in seconds without contacting sales engineering. CLIK-LY can be integrated with order management systems for real time visibility by dealers, customers, and suppliers. It is capable of selecting compatible sales codes and generate the Bill of Materials for Powertrain, Chassis and Driveline, while guaranteeing the optimal quote.
Custom layouts of vehicle chassis and bodies optimized on the Certusoft cloud can be imported directly into CAD programs such as SolidWorks, Creo and NX to enable engineering review of finished drawings. The cloud-generated finished drawings can be filed for Engineering Documentation and viewed by customers on any web browser using Certusoft secure CLIK 3D Renderer.
