Mannesmann VDO AG as a competent partner in automotive industries has developed a new stepper motor for display applications. By this article methodical procedure during a complex development process will be shown. A scenario was set up which included items like illumination of pointer, assembly process and contracting to drive electronics.
Starting with a specification of duties, the work of the project team is presented. It exists of members of different disciplines: purchase, development, construction, production engineering, tools building, plastics part production up to assembly and quality assurance. It cooperated with several parts and plant suppliers.
