Optimisation of the Process of Experimental Sign off of a Vehicle

In this paper, the design process of durability sign off tests for new vehicles is described. The reliability tests are based on experimental measures performed on a physical prototype, subjected to tests on public roads. The data, translated into Rainflow domain, is used to statistically define the target. The prototype is then tested on test tracks so that a particular combination can be selected to define a sequence matching the target. An IVECO vehicle is presented as a test case. This work extends cooperative efforts between the Industrial Engineering Department at Perugia University and IVECO Testing Labs and Methodologies of Turin.
