Opportunity

Scania, a world-leading sustainable transport solutions provider, is now looking for solutions that enable simulated, safety-focused training for working with high-voltage batteries. If you work on solutions that will allow scalable, adaptable, and easily repeatable virtual training, do not hesitate to contact us!

Opportunity overview

Today, Scania has various products with high safety standards, all requiring specific training. When a new high-voltage battery type is released to a Scania product, the corresponding workforce is trained with the proper practice equipment. As new types of batteries are constantly developed, and international standards demand specific training for each battery type and connected workflow, there is a high demand for efficient training activities.

Currently, 2 participants can be trained by one certified trainer. Each Scania geographical market has a responsible trainer. Certifying the trainers requires traveling costs and resourcing from the Scania head office, limiting the hands-on training times in the classroom environment.
Scania is now looking for an easier way to convey and repeat the training for the workforce without the need for international travel. Our vision is to have a virtual training platform that enables workflow simulation with unlimited training attempts in a safe virtual reality classroom.

Every time a new battery type is released, Scania supplies 3d drawings and instruction materials for the virtual training provider to create educational material for the latest equipment and workflow. Afterward, each certified trainer could further educate the designated workforce in the different markets in a scalable and repeatable way. In addition, before the workforce’s actual work procedures with the batteries, a just-in-time rehearsal of the workflow can be performed at a minimal cost.

The solutions Scania is looking for should preferably offer a seamless and inclusive user experience with high portability and a simple setup. Adjusting the training content should be convenient, including a certain level of solution configurability for the trainers. The platform should also be flexible for adding and updating new virtual products and workflows. While the solution should preferably be flexible for the used hardware, it should provide a high enough resolution to enable certification of a range of skills. Finally, Scania is interested in interoperability with other enterprise systems, high-grade data security, and technical support.

Your opportunity with Scania

Working with Scania provides an opportunity to partner up with an innovative global company on a mission to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system and benefit from Scania’s extensive industry know-how and large operational volumes.

Scania is looking for the capability to develop and adapt the solution to fit Scania’s requirements. The selected solution providers will get technical and financial support from Scania to develop concept prototypes for further evaluation. If a suitable solution is found, Scania is looking for collaboration and rollouts on a global level, including around 30 to 50 different markets where both trainers and the designated workforce are expected to be educated. Moreover, Scania wants to extend the virtual training solution to other product component categories. Scania’s most exciting business model would be to license the technology from the selected supplier.

Examples we're looking for

Portability

We are looking for an easily portable and preferably wireless virtual training solution that can run on mobile devices without requiring a complex solution setup. The answer could include, but may not be limited to, portable and commercial virtual or mixed-reality headsets and proprietary workflow training software.

Adaptability

We seek an adaptable platform solution that would preferably be flexible to the type of hardware used. The answer should also enable convenient software and workflow updates while offering a certain level of configurability for the trainers, including, e.g., an editor mode to make specific adjustments.

Interoperability

The solutions we are looking for preferably offer integration opportunities with Scania’s business process management systems, such as the Product Lifetime Management System (PLM), which stores crucial up-to-date product information, such as 3d drawings and instruction materials. The desired automation through interoperability can be achieved, e.g., with APIs or other methods.

Scania is a world-leading provider of transport solutions with nearly 57,000 employees in more than 100 countries. Together with their partners and customers, they drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
