Layout Study is a tool Frestems offers to streamline the initial ambulance vehicle design phase. With basic requirements and available space reservation as an input, Frestems may create you a suggested ambulance layout which consists of our product modules. The study results give an overview of the functionality of an ambulance vehicle and may for example be used to support tender phase. We have fixed standard price for this type of study, and it can be initiated after signing a two way non-disclosure agreement.
For the Layout study we only need to have a 3D model of the vehicle hull (or overall dimensions) and initial requirements on how many stretcher patients, seated patients and medics need to be transported. If our standard stretcher system modules don’t fit as-is, we usually have the option to parametrically configure variable product dimensions to create a vehicle-specific, customized solution. Customized solution is very cost effective way to create vehicle specific version but if proper functionality cannot be achieved with the variables in use, we will use the final option to create a Full custom solution. With Full custom solution we will modify everything necessary to achieve functional design.
Layout study phase usually takes 2-3 weeks to deliver. The design work is done using SolidWorks and the resulting 3D model can be supplied in any Solidworks compatible export format (e.g. STEP, Parasolid). A brief report about the study findings and the functionality of the designed layout will also be written.
