ZF is a global technology company providing systems for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and industrial technology that enable next-generation mobility. Examples are braking systems for trailers, trucks and agricultural machines. Thousands of qualified braking systems are designed by ZF experts every year for customers all over the world. The share of own brake cylinders is important for ZF. For the customers, the total price and especially an accepted qualification report by the local authorities are key. The report shows that the vehicle complies with local regulations and is allowed on the road. For this ZF Wabco uses the KE-chain platform.

KE-chain enables ZF sales agents to assemble brake systems worldwide in three languages ​​(English, German and French). When designing a braking system, the user has the option of making selections from parts libraries and thus adapting the system or to have a proposal made automatically. For each braking system, a qualification report is always generated automatically based on ZF Wabco braking system models accepted by, for example, the TUV and RDW. Their own working method, models and libraries are all configured based on the KE-chain platform.

Over the past year, the ZF Wabco team has rolled out the application to their users worldwide. Users create their own designs or are supported via the application by experts from, for example, the Netherlands, Germany, France, England and India. In the coming period we will further optimize the application for the users together with the ZF Wabco team. We’re looking forward to it!
