The project is on design of a new hydraulic system for the fire fighting machine. The purpose of the hydraulic system is to design a shovel system attach to the fire fighting machine. The function of the shovel system is to clear the obstacles when the machine operates in the fire scene. The other functions of the shovel are to carry the fire fighting equipments to the fire scene or carry victim from the fire scene. The current existing fire fighting technologies, the current existing fire fighting machine, and the hydraulic system were studied. Firstly, the conceptual design will describes the design process of the conceptual design of the shovel. The contents include of product design specification, morphology chart, the concept designs generated, concept evaluation, and the final concept. The conceptual design is transfer to CAD drawing by using CATIA CAD software. The function and design of the shovel and each of the components of the shovel system will be described in detail. Besides, calculations on how to select the proper hydraulic cylinder also stated. Then the shovel system will be analysed using SolidWork 2009 and the hydraulic circuit for new hydraulic system is being simulated using FluidSim 3.6 Festo. Finally, the numbering part to each of the part, division of the shovel system to separate cluster, engineering bill of material (EBOM), and product costing will be described in detail.
