The team successfully carried out a vehicle development capability improvement project, which helped their company satisfy customers and continue taking the lead in global emerging market. This project's objective was to improve vehicle body safety system development capability in three aspects: accurate—accuracy of CAE analysis; fast—developing time; efficient—vehicle efficiency among benchmarks. The project was carried out according to a global vehicle development process that contained different milestones and different deliverables to help achieve final success. The team followed a Design for Six Sigma approach to achieve an annual cost savings of $3.8 million and utilized tools such as SIPOC, turtle diagram, brainstorming, affinity diagram, effect and difficulty matrix, cause and effect matrix, ANOVA, and Monte Carlo analysis for improvement opportunities identification. In the improvement development phase, benchmarking, topology, DoE, decision matrix, Pugh matrix, four-box model, and others were utilized to get seven final improvement recommendations. These improvements were supported by all stakeholders in the implementation phase and resulted in a CAE accuracy increase of 61 percent, a structure efficiency increase of 14 percent, and a developing time decrease of 37.5 percent. This project impacted the organization's goals for increasing development capability and taking the lead in technical strategy in automotive industry.
