The LRV's are being produced by China Southern Rail in Zhuzhou for the Malaysian Government

Before establishing IDA, Jason Bennett, Angelo Kotsis and Tim Rugendyke were the lead designers for the project. On a recent visit to Zhuzhou in Hunan, China to review the prototype, lead designer for the interior, Jason Bennett commented, “We are really impressed by CSR's faithfulness to the design intent. Stepping on board the finished product is like stepping into the concept renderings”.

IDA was also commissioned to write a human factors report for the vehicles to validate the design.  “Through applying human factors data to the design we can identify areas that aren’t quite meeting compliance and rectify any issues before full production begins. This means comfort and safety are optimized for the best end-customer experience”, said IDA’s Tim Rugendyke.

此轻轨列车的生产商为中国株洲电力机车有限公司,业主则为马来西亚政府。

此项目为白振昇(Jason Bennett)、安哲龙(Angelo Kotsis)和罗臻科(Tim Rugendyke) 在创立联盟工业设计公司(IDA)之前一起执行完成的。身为内装部份的首席设计师,白振昇在近期一次到中国湖南的株洲电力机车公司的拜访里,亲自观赏了新建完成的安邦轻轨列车原型车,他说” 在这个原型车的製作成品里,我们看到株洲电力机车公司对方案设计的忠诚度,当我踏进这辆原型车的时候,就像是走进当初我们製作的效果图里面一般!”

联盟工业设计公司(IDA)也被委任执行此项目的人机工程学分析报告书,目的是让此项目的工业设计更趋於实用性,罗臻科说”透过人机分析的数据资料,我们可以在最终的生产开始之前,先优化好产品的合规性、筛检问题並提供解决方案,这代表产品的使用者可以享受到安全性与舒适性。”
