The European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) is the European equivalent to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) test database.
Euro NCAP rated the Toyota Prius as one of the top 3 safest cars in Europe. It received the highest score for child protection (43 points).
surfaceink[sic], an engineering company focused on product development, estimates that product design generally takes 6-12 weeks and that building and testing takes approximately 20-26 weeks.
Time-saving strategies for assembly design include using and reusing components, making component copies, isolating components, and moving parts by building them in components.
Tips for better engineering drawings to save time and money include consolidating call-outs when multiples of the same feature exist in a view, and providing the supplier and parts number on the drawing when hardware installation is required.
