1 Introduction

The objective of this project is to understand what user trade-offs were selected and prioritized when each of the three systems were being developed. The Systems to be analyzed will be: • 2012 Audi S4 Sedan • 2012 BMW M3 Sedan • 2012 CLS63 AMG Sedan

In order to understand this relationship, a reverse engineering concept will be done using the QFD-HOQ model on all three of the above systems.
Traditional Enginnering concepts will be utilized during the system analysis making design considerations (i.e. speed vs. weight vs. acceleration) all of these systems. It will be according to reverse engineering and the importance of each user requirement associated with the system by paying specific attention to the relationship between the voice of the customer and the engineer.

...An automobile, autocar, motor car or car is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transporting passengers, which also carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods.[3] The year 1886 is regarded the year of birth of the modern automobile - with the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, by German inventor Carl Benz. Motorized wagons soon replaced animal-drafted carriages, especially after automobiles became affordable for many people when the Ford Model T was introduced in 1908. The term motorcar has formerly also been used in the context of electrified rail systems to denote a car which functions as a small locomotive but also provides space for passengers and baggage. These locomotive cars were often used on suburban routes by both interurban and intercity railroad systems.[4] It was estimated in 2010 that the number of automobiles had risen to over 1 billion vehicles, up from the 500 million of 1986.[5] The numbers are increasing rapidly, especially in China, India and other NICs. ------------------------------------------------- Etymology The word automobile comes, via the French automobile from the Ancient Greek word αὐτός (autós, "self") and the Latin mobilis("movable"); meaning a vehicle that moves itself. The loanword was first adopted in English by The......

...Lotus Rental company has been a leader in car rental world. As the competition in the rental world rises with more exotic and fuel efficient vehicles being integrated to all rental fleets; hybrid vehicles become a priority. With their fuel efficiency being higher than that ever compared to standard fuel vehicles, the demand rises for the new better fuel efficiency vehicles. Hybrids car are averaging from 35-55 miles per gallon, compared to 25-35 in standard vehicles. Toyota has been a leader in hybrid car world with prime contender the Prius. The Prius is a moderately priced four door car than averages about 40 or more miles per gallon. Prius comes in four variations: Prius, Prius c, Prius Plug-in, and Prius v, they are all over the 40 mile per gallon but; the Prius Plug-in comes with a 98 mile per gallon range.

...become sales pariahs the question comes that booms is whether the automakers would still be able to sell every car they have. With the lethal combination of a slumping economy, tight credit, depressed homebuilding, and record high gas prices, Americans can't afford to buy as many new cars as they once did. And the models they want are smaller and more fuel-efficient. Even with deep discounts and heavy incentives, the rows of unsold Dodge Rams and Chevy Trailblazers parked in front of dealerships across the country barely seem to thin. Unlike Shaws or Wal-Mart none of these manufacturers do buy backs of the merchandise a retailer doesn't sell to a consumer. The misconception many people have about new-car sales is that the automaker is actually doing the selling to consumers but in reality, a manufacturer sells to a dealer, and it's up to the dealer to retail the inventory and in this case it’s the same story with AutoNation they are being loaded with the unwanted inventory which results in stocking up there yards and also getting them costs such as interests on the money that had been borrowed from the bank. I would interpret my research in sort of an example from the car industry itself say for instance a dealer buys a new vehicle at wholesale from the factory, it's up to them to sell it, because there is no such defined period in which he might be able to sell that car. It may take longer than they'd like, and they may not get the price they want, but sooner or later,......

...Cars One of the most important steps in becoming an adult is your first car. When you have a car, you don’t need to rely on other people for rides to and from where you want to go. You also learn a great deal, thus making you a more responsible person. I live in Putney, a small town in southeastern Vermont, but I worked and went to school in Brattleboro. Brattleboro is a slightly larger town about a half an hour south of Putney. Since we had to keep stopping to pick up kids, the bus ride to school took an hour. As such, I had to get up a half hour earlier on days I had to ride the bus. That was a huge pain, especially since I hated the bus anyway. After I got my car, I could sleep in. I could also go out to lunch when I was at school, therefore being able to eat where I wanted, and not in the cafeteria. In addition, I could drive myself home after school. That was beneficial because I could hang out with my friends, and go to concerts and movies. I could do whatever I wanted, as long as I made sure my parents were okay with it. My social life improved greatly with the acquisition of my car. If I hadn’t had my car, I could not have worked where I did. I worked at a Lebanese restaurant in downtown Brattleboro. Part of my job was rolling grape leaves in the wholesale department on Mondays and Tuesdays. The job was great, but I never really knew when I was going to be finished. In wholesale, you work until you’re done. When my parents had to come pick me up after work, I...

...When asked about a car, most people think of transportation, a way to get from point A to point B, but to me my car serves as a shield. A shield that allows me to separate myself from problems and the stress that sneaks into my daily life. For ten minutes in the morning every weekday, I strap myself inside this shield. I don’t stress over a math problem. I don’t read about the issues going on in our society today. I turn the radio on in my car and although it’s tempting, I don’t think about anything but the road and the music. Strapped inside this shield with nothing but the radio on and the open road in front of me; I am content. A common issue most people face is the lack of time they have during the day to enjoy their life away from work and struggle. I know my mind is constantly running, thinking about the events in my day’s agenda and how on earth I’m going to accomplish all of them by sundown. Most people use every opportunity they have during the day to complete their work, so they do not have to bring it home with them. This is why you see people texting while they are driving, or sending an email in the middle of traffic. So that when they go home they have one thing less to worry about, and have more time to enjoy their time away from work. The bizarre thing is my mind seems to come to a halt when I step inside my car. Any thought related to work or stress is eliminated. The unfinished work finds it’s way into my trunk. I no longer think about the agenda I have......

...With the progress of science and technology, the cars have already become an important part in our daily life. It is known as a vehicle with four wheels and it contains an engine and that is used to move from one place to another smoothly and quickly. The cars are one of many very useful transportation methods; it gives the freedom to travel to anywhere and on anytime. In this essay I will compare and contrast this transportation method between the past generation and the present generation. This essay will focus on three key areas – engine, safety and technology. The first area that this essay will consider is about cars engine, the most importance thing in the car is the engine which it is the thing that makes the car move. In the past, the people were just wanted a car to reach them from point A to point B, so the car engine was so simple. For instance, the mechanical engineer Karl Benz created the first car engine which it called (Benz’s engine), the automobile was motorized by a 0.75-hp one-cylinder four-stroke gasoline engine. Furthermore, the speed of car was just 16 km/h (10 mph) (1). Besides, it was not need a lot of energy and it caused lots of pollution. With the technological advances; in current generation the car’s engine is working the basic principle like in the past by air and fuel combustion to create a rotational force and move the car, but the modern cars engine has become more developed. Where it is characterized by more reliable, more efficient and......

...still going to cost you a tidy five-figure sum to buy the necessary parts, materials and paint supplies needed to transform an old car from a worn-out relic to a dazzling show beauty. If you've decided to restore a particular old car because you have a longstanding attachment to that model and are not concerned about its value or whether parts can be easily found, then we applaud you--that mindset should be the primary focus of this great hobby of ours. However, if you enjoy old car restoration but prefer your projects to be easy and relatively cheap to do--with, perhaps, the added bonus of making a few dollars on it when it's done--then these are the cars you should consider for your next venture. Of course, the majority of these cars won't make you stand apart from the crowd at a show or cruise-in, but you will be able to complete their restoration far faster and a whole lot cheaper than if you chose a car that was rare, or had only been made for a few years. Another factor to consider is the actual purchase price of the car. While some of the cars listed here can be bought for around $5,000, others will cost four times as much even if they're basket cases--but keep in mind that those higher-priced cars will also bring four times the money when sold, so it kind of equals out. But the one common feature enjoyed by most of these cars--and the main reason why they are on this list--is that they're backed by a huge parts supply, making them a lot easier to......

...With the development of science and technology, the cars have already become the important component in our daily life gradually. Cars make our life convenient and swift. However, too many cars have caused very serious social problems. Some people claim that the disadvantages of car are more than the advantages. I doubt whether the argument can bear much analysis. Since one century [ago], the auto industry has [been] developed at full speed worldwide, and has brought the enormous progresses to our life. For example, the car is the most convenient tool of transportation. We can [be] on and off duty by car every day, we can go to travel by car on the vacation, we can utilize the cars to deal with some emergency too. The car [is] playing an important role in our daily life. They make our rhythm of life faster and faster, make our business become more and more efficient. On the other hand, the development of the automobile has brought a lot of infant industry to people, Give people countless employment opportunities too. Such as, manufacturing industry, repairing industry and maintaining industry. We are enjoying the convenience that the cars bring to us; at the same time we can utilize the auto industry to support ourselves.However, we can not ignore that too many cars cause enormous social problems, for example, traffic jam, air pollution, traffic accident, to which we have to find a solution.

...brand-new construction site in New Delhi, India. The construction of this plant, which only builds Stark models, was started in April 2004 and became operational at the end of 2006. The final aim is to manufacture some 200,000 cars per year. This is the first large Stark plant on India soil. It is the definitive link of the brand with our continent, building pickup trucks according to the highest India quality standards. This new production unit will not only set the tone with new standards on efficiency and productivity, but will consequently also respect the strictest environmental standards in the Asia Union. Since quality is a top priority for Stark, 1 in every 15 employees is responsible for quality control. The New Delhi currently employs 1,200 of the very best specialists in pick-up truck assembly. Exporting Decision While Stark enjoyed a relative dearth of competition in its core domestic market, it also launched an aggressive and successful export campaign during the 1980s that penetrated Japan and Europe, among other regions. By the mid-1980s Stark was selling about 300,000 pickup trucks annually, still mostly in South Korea. A major breakthrough for Stark occurred, however, when it started shipping automobiles to one of the largest international car market, Africa. Stark reached an agreement to supply Nivan with its KL1500 model. The KL1500  was a “micro pickup” aimed at the low-end buyer. Stark planned to ship about 70,000 units annually for Nivan and a like......
