Automotive component suppliers face an array of global trends that are changing how they pursue testing and validation of their products. Principal among these is the rising complexity and interaction of components and active subsystems. This is driving changes in test requirements, and consequently, the evolution of testing technologies and methods.
Also significant is intensifying competition among component suppliers. Today’s OEMs can be more selective, which effectively pushes product testing down the supply chain. Increasingly, OEMs are demanding that suppliers model their designs and provide test data that validates component quality and performance.
