Modularization does not only give economic and manufacturing advantages, it also provides a basis for development of a first class ergonomic driver environment. Scania Commercial Vehicle AB has a long tradition in producing highly modularized products and throughout the years Scania has gained a reputation of having a well-planned and flexible driver interface. The key to this has been a structured system, which has adaptation capabilities, and to use the strong points of modularization to gain functionality. By using versatile and functionally unique modules, a palette of functionality is formed. This palette provides the possibility to meet different drivers needs and preferences with good ergonomic solutions.
