Factors in Car Production
The automotive industry is subject to a host of regulations and standards governing the safety, quality, and performance of their products. For each part of the final product, manufacturers must make a range of considerations such as consumer safety, value retention, long-term performance, environmental impact, etc. Furthermore, vehicles go through everything ranging from extended sun exposure to harsh impacts and are expected to withstand a wide array of external factors to an acceptable degree. Because the automotive industry standards and regulations place the responsibility on manufacturers to establish the integrity of their products, these companies typically have to send parts and samples to third-party automotive testing labs like Applied Technical Services to help ensure their vehicles can meet the plethora of requirements that a car must fulfill.
