Abstract

Today development projects in automotive industry are highly distributed and several packages are completely handled by system suppliers. Moreover the illustrated situation is aggravated by an increasing number of models and variants. Two methods for supporting designers in that situation will be introduced. The first focuses on a test design which helps to select crucial variant characteristics and to plan the experimental set up accordingly. The second compiles information on product tests regarding organisational resources, required prototypes, milestones, testing results and integrates them into a common information platform for the overall controlling of the design project status.

Keywords: variant management, early evaluation of product properties, project management, design of experiences, practical problems and applied solutions
