PLATO – Automotive Test Lifecycle Management

The global Automotive industry is currently facing an immense challenge to deliver vehicles that are better, faster and cheaper. Accelerated new model launches and shrinking product lifecycles have severely disturbed amortization plans to recover new vehicle development costs. This poses an immediate need for the optimization of product development process. As product testing plays an important role in the development cycle and constitutes a significant portion of the time involved in new product introduction (NPI), it becomes a crucial component to be considered while streamlining the NPI process.
