Introduction to Automotive Engineering


The aim of the Automotive Engineering Project is to provide possibilities for the students to participate in industry-related product development projects, to train problem-oriented learning and to act in an automotive engineering environment. The projects have focus on early product development, i.e concept study phases and test and evaluation of physical prototypes or simulation models, and value-based management. The course is limited to ground vehicles.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

- recognize and join working in an automotive engineering project
- discuss product development in the automotive environment value and appreciate different competences of a multicultural project team
- create a project definition by
o clarifying stakeholders, roles and responsibilities for the team members
o creating a project goal statement
o analysing objectives, deliverables and boundaries, milestones and Gantt plans
o identifying and assessing risks and changes
- recognize the connection between products and customers by
o describing lifecycles of products
o listing customer requirements and demands
o recognizing Voice of the Customer
- analyse the process of customer value creation by
o identifying main, additional, supportive and undesired functions of a product
o creating functional models
o evaluating commercial position of products and therefore be able to identify create and choose strategies for further development
o generate new technical concepts, combine and compare them
- create, test and evaluate the concept by
o designing technical solutions in CAD o constructing and assemble a prototype or simulation model
o evaluating the results from a functional test of the prototype/simulation model and the targets in the product specification
o assessing whether the project has succeeded, if not analyse necessary steps; a need for another loop in concept generation.
- argue and defend the developed system at an oral presentation and in a written report.


The projects in the course are automotive product development tasks inspired by research or by the cooperation between Chalmers and the local industry. Each problem-oriented study has a clear target and is mainly a theoretical activity focusing on evaluation of alternative solutions and planning of activities and resources needed to demonstrate a concept, e.g., in a vehicle. The project course also involves management of the team, project definition including deliverables, time planning including milestones, risk analysis and group dynamics The project management process used in the projects focuses on how to master the development phase in a project and at the same time create unrivalled customer value. The Value Model has a holistic view on the product development process. The Value Model may be looked upon as a practical tool that uses several of the modern methods for product development in a structured order. The term Customer Value is a central focus and guides and supports the team in the process. Besides the development of the product and the technical aspects, the Value Model includes the two other important dimensions of a project; the creation and inspiration of the team and the satisfaction of the owner, sponsor and contributor to the project by delivering a product that responds to required expectations. The part of the Project Manager in the process is therefore very clearly defined.
