AUTOMATED DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS-VOLUME I: VEHICLE INSPECTION, FINAL REPORT-PHASE II

THE PRESENT PROCEDURES, COST, AND EFFECTIVENESS OF AUTOMATED DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT FOR THE MOTOR VEHICLE INSPECTION PROCESS ARE DOCUMENTED AND EVALUATED AND AN APPROPRIATE COST MODEL OF THE INCREASINGLY EXTENSIVE USE OF SUCH EQUIPMENT IS DEVELOPED. THE COST MODEL IS USED FOR SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF COST DATA AND OTHER PARAMETERS, AND THE VARIOUS INSPECTION SYSTEMS HYPOTHESIZED DURING THE STUDY ARE EVALUATED FOR COST EFFECTIVENESS. THE SAFETY MODEL EVALUATES THE EFFECT OF AN INSPECTION SYSTEM IN REDUCING THE NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY DEFECTIVE VEHICLE COMPONENTS. THE EFFICIENCY MODEL DETERMINES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INDIVIDUAL TESTS OR GROUPS OF TESTS. /AUTHOR/
