Opportunity

If you are working on a solution that contributes to extending the life of components by increasing the visibility of their status and second-life availability throughout the life cycle, we would like to hear from you.

Opportunity overview

For Scania, circularity involves every aspect of our business. It challenges us to rethink how we design and manufacture products, our impact, our value chain knowledge, and how we develop business models and provide value for our customers. Committed to sustainability, the circularity and transparency of components in Scania products for heavy transport applications are critical. In compliance with regulations related to sustainability and the circular economy, Scania is focused on extending the lifetime of components and saving our customers’ costs by providing an option for second-life parts. We would also explore new revenue streams by selling second-life pieces. Scania also prioritizes supply chain optimization and aims to create a competitive advantage by demonstrating its commitment to innovation and environmental sustainability.

To reach these goals, we are interested in asset tracking and management solutions that include. Still, we may not be limited to traceability, quality, and financial value data of Scania product components throughout their life cycle. The envisioned solution enables Scania to increase the efficient utilization of used parts in the circular system, ranging from manufacturing to scrapping or recycling. The answer should be able to provide real-time and residual value information while facilitating predictive data on component availability in a timely fashion based on data points such as component location, quality, or volumes. Ultimately, the potential solution needs to create value for Scania customers by extending the life cycle of Scania vehicles.

Examples we're looking for

Component asset management

We seek solutions that track, trace, and manage assets on a component level. This means following and gathering life-cycle data, using different Scania vehicle components, and providing accurate information regarding the component type, details, history, and health.

Component value estimation

The envisioned solution can estimate the conditions of the vehicle components and their financial value throughout the life cycle. The answer should provide the real-time and residual value of different vehicle components to increase their lifetime efficiency and value for the circular system.

Predictive analysis

The solutions we seek should offer Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning predictive analytics built on inputs like the components’ location, quality, or volume. Analytics would include, for example, the second-life component availability and book across regions.
