Applied Synergy in Automotive Test Systems 2001-01-1104

The objective of this paper is to show how synergy can be applied to automotive components testing to reduce component development test time.
The test system designed by the author reduced time required for developmental testing by 88 percent. The system combined durability vibration testing with environmental stress testing. Design factors considered during the development of this system include health, safety, ergonomics, constructability, isolation, connectivity, cost, and environmental protection.
The principles used in developing this system can be translated into a general set of rules for the development of testing systems using synergy.
