Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers must use new ways of designing and developing products to remain competitive. Simultaneous engineering or concurrent engineering considers each distinct step of the entire process at the same time. SP-999 expands the process to look at the treatment of components and a collection of components into systems. Contents include: improving manual manufacturing with a computer based laser projection system; anatomy of an instrumented generic quadriplegic evaluation van; a practical product/process reliability development and improvement approach; computation of external automobile body shapes; simultaneous engineering of systems; design and testing of ovate wire helical springs; and simultaneous engineering of powertrain subsystems - design aspects.
