Vehicle breakdown statistics show a clear trend: quality will be a major target for the future. This, taken together with the growing market demand for greater reliability, shows that the automobile industry needs to take action. A way to achieve this is being sought, in some cases too frantically. All the concepts which have been formulated, as yet, have a common aim:
- Price or cost reduction
- A more flexible response to market trends
- To boost the consumer's quality consciousness.
The right response to these challenges leads directly to a reduction in development time.
The first answer is a standardization of test procedures according to operating strength.
The first idea and outlook was done in the SAE-Paper 790464 in 1979: “The ASSET-Technique”. Now in 1996 it has become a standard in the German car industry.
