Prospector, Peterbilt Motors Co's new vehicle configuration and ordering computer program, has been re-engineered and is now in use throughout the Peterbilt dealer network.

This program lets customers work with their dealership to configure and order vehicles custom-built to exact specifications and business requirements, regardless of the application. The spec'ing tool helps ensure compatibility for all component parts, and through online updates, offers up-to-date spec'ing options.

Prospector also has a new graphical look and enhanced functions. Spec'ing is easier and graphics correspond to each stage of the process, helping customers better visualize vehicles being built. Engineering CAD (computer-assisted design) illustrations represent each model and component graphically, as well as components installed in the models.
