Design Verification Process

The design verification process starts with the development of the functional prototypes of newly designed systems in the Prototype Workshop. The product prototypes are tested comprehensively through component and field tests, and the compliance of the strength and performance of the products with customer expectations and test specifications is evaluated.

Test and Approval Plan, Functional Prototypes

In the design verification phase, a plan is developed by taking into account product features, intended use, customer expectations, new content, and technological changes.

Within the limits of this plan, laboratory and field tests as well as verification processes are performed on sub-components, systems, prototypes and pre-series products.
  In addition to engine performance and emission measurements, the conditions that the engines will be exposed to during use are simulated with accelerated tests of economic life, which leads to the development of proactive solutions and designing of improvement methods.

Vibration tests are conducted for the cab and the complete product via the operation area vibration and impact effects applied to the chassis in an accelerated manner. Thus, product reliability is improved and the development process is shortened.
  By analyzing the data obtained from different field and operating conditions, the durability of the new product cab and chassis is tested on the highly effective Servohydraulic test system. Afterwards, the necessary design changes are implemented to increase reliability.

Thanks to the hydraulic test capability, the performances, characteristics and effects on the system of components such as pump, power outputs, and mechanical and electrohydraulic valve systems are determined, and the designs of these components are verified.

In order to increase the durability and reliability of the systems on the product against the conditions the product is expected to be exposed to throughout its economic life, data are collected using sensors. Unique test setups suitable for the purpose are built depending on the collected data, and product development is supported with flexible testing capability.

Field Tests

The product is sent for field tests in different regions of Turkey in order to better understand how the product performs in field conditions, to observe its compatibility with the equipment and to receive feedback from users about daily use.

These tests, which differ in each project, are carried out on at least two products and for 1000 hours each. During the tests, the products are constantly monitored, any problems that may occur are immediately resolved to ensure the continuity of the test. During these tests, prospective customers experience the products.
