The process of designing, developing and validating new or modified vehicles and their Powertrains is an immense commitment in time, resources and cost. The risks inherent in such enterprises require careful management and control in terms of project planning and execution. Risks in time and resources can be minimised by utilising appropriately qualified external services skilled in key elements of the process.
All vehicle manufacturers face a constant challenge to ensure compliance with applicable regulations and those relating to tailpipe emissions are among the toughest to meet. Predicting the requirements of future legislation presents an even bigger challenge as the auto industry prepares for the impact of financial penalties for those exceeding fleet average CO2 limits.
In our modern world, the urgent need to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels has now become an obligation. Internal combustion engines will remain the most common form of motive power for many years but social, economic and ecological implications dictate that these engines must achieve significantly lower emissions levels in order to remain viable and acceptable.
There is an ever increasing demand in electronics, emissions and on board diagnostic regulations in vehicle development. Vehicle testing both in engineering, manufacturing and dealership service have become increasingly more important for initial quality and customer satisfaction.
The performance of a vehicle can be defined in many different ways. Whilst top speed and acceleration are often quoted, the driveability of a vehicle is a much more relevant metric for real-world usage. The level of optimisation of a vehicle's driveability will ultimately decide its success or failure in the market place and the behaviour of the engine in all conditions is a critical factor.
Market demands for vehicle performance with increasing levels of comfort, refinement and crash protection will continue to dictate the urgent need for engines to deliver higher specific power and torque outputs.
Reducing total vehicle weight has become a major focus for the automotive industry in recent years, as this allows significant savings in fuel consumption to be achieved in all driving conditions combined with further benefits such as vehicle dynamic behaviour. However, customers are also demanding increased safety and feature content which often leads to vehicle cost and weight increases.
Reducing engine friction has gained increased importance within the automotive industry in recent years
Manufacturing of customer products is a multi-faceted and complex issue. Challenging specifications, quality requirements, budgets and timescales require optimisation at all stages of the process.
Time to market is a crucial factor in determining the commercial success of new engines and vehicles. With new markets and ever changing demands, it is vital that automotive manufacturers can develop their models in ever reducing timescales. The challenge is in spending less time and resources on the development process without compromising the quality and appeal of the finished vehicle.
