Early Increase of Design Maturity of Restraint System Components in the Reduced Prototype Vehicle Development Process


Description

The number of hardware prototypes available for the development of restraint systems and restraint system components is declining steadily due to an increasing cost pressure in automotive development. In the project schedule the availability of hardware (restraint system components and / or vehicle environments) shifts to the late vehicle development phases. As a result, ensuring the required degree of maturity of restraint system components, in addition to the sole functional development of seatbelts and airbag, necessitates new strategies and development paths. In this seminar, current risks in the development of seatbelts and airbags are addressed and ideas for the early increase of maturity are elucidated. This is done by explaining the link between milestones in the development schedule, the functional requirements of restraint system components, the development duration of restraint system components and the description of approaches for the creation of substitutes of vehicle environments in the early development process. In addition the project schedules of conventional vehicle development processes and prototype-reduced development processes of base line models and derivatives are shown. Interactions of the development of seatbelts and airbags with surrounding components (e.g. trim parts) are also discussed.

Who should attend?

The seminar is aimed at engineers and project managers of restraint systems and restraint system components development, as well as heads of teams or departments in the field of passive safety, which want to gain, in addition to the pure functional development of restraint systems, an overview of the requirements of the prototype-reduced restraint system development with regard to achieving and ensuring the necessary degree of maturity of belts and airbags.

Course Objectives

The course provides thoughts and ideas for a successful approach in the development of restraint systems within vehicle development processes in which only a small number of prototypes are available for verification and optimization of the systems.
