A Systems Engineering Approach to Subsystem Design: Automotive Transmissions 911936
Systems Engineering is a disciplined approach to managing the engineering process throughout a product life cycle. This discipline has long been practiced in the aerospace industry, enabling successful integration of highly complex subsystems. The rapidly increasing complexity of automotive design and manufacture has necessitated a similar approach.
A Systems Engineering approach to automotive subsystem design is presented in this paper. Special emphasis is given to explaining the procedures and tools used to plan, coordinate, and execute transmission programs.
