In an effort to ensure that the characteristics of prototype friction materials do not differ from those of the “same” material when introduced into volume production and that, in production, these characteristics do not vary over time, DaimlerChrysler has instigated the processes of Shoe and Lining Fingerprinting and Production Variation Reduction. For the launch of the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee the concept of Production Variation Reduction was extended by the Jeep Platform and BBA Friction, Inc., to 25 pre-production batches of material to eliminate prototype to production variability.
