Product failures in the customer's hands can be minimized through the use of a disciplined approach to vehicle proveout. In this paper, the Ford Truck Systems Engineering approach to product failure prevention is presented including definition of objectives, program reviews, testing, manufacturing and processing considerations, control of critical supplied components, and periodic status assessment. In addition, the techniques used to resolve critical component failure problems during a new vehicle experimental development program are discussed.
