Easier working with heavy vehicles

RAMSIS Industrial Vehicles is tailored for the ergonomic design of construction and heavy machinery. This means increased productivity and safety for your customers ― and for you a clear differentiation of your products in the market.

BOMAG: How can we adapt our vehicles for the Japanese market?

With the right target group selection in RAMSIS, BOMAG detects significant ergonomic differences for the average Japanese driver ― in the steering wheel position, for instance.

RAMSIS in the development process

RAMSIS enables the design of heavy construction machinery in such a way that the vehicles can be fully controlled through the review of visibility standards, for example or through improved operability ― without the driver having to learn everything about them in advance. Safety therefore remains at the same high standard, even if the operators change ― because the machine itself reduces the risk of accidents with the resulting damage and production delays. And the really good thing about this is that it can be carried out on the virtual model at the strategy and concept phase, quickly comparing different design options to select the best.
