Abstract

The automotive safety-testing environment currently deploys virtual methods and physical crash testing for new product development and validation in safety testing legislation. Cost benefit analysis of crash testing as a design evaluation method is considered here by estimating the cost of virtual crash testing. This has been achieved via the compilation of detailed process maps and AS-IS analyses of the current virtual testing procedures. This leads on to detailed work and cost breakdown structures used in the comparative analysis of cost drivers. The research considers cost drivers at the nal stages of the virtual crash testing process only which potentially can evaluate legislation requirements with minimum physical crash testing. This research considers front and side impact only
