Analytical method development and validation are the continuous and inter-dependent task associated with the research and development, quality control and quality assurance departments. Analytical procedures play a critical role in equivalence and risk assessment, management. It helps in establishment of product-specific acceptance criteria and stability of results. An effective analytical method development and its validation can provide significant improvements in precision and a reduction in bias errors. It can further help to avoid costly and time consuming exercises.
In the automotive industry, various simulation-based analysis methods have been suggested and applied to reduce the time and cost required to develop the engine structure to improve the performance of powertrain. This simulation is helpful to set the engine design concept in the initial phase of the powertrain development schedules.
Combining analytical and experimental methods in the upfront design and development stage has become a critical tool to cut down the vehicle product creation and process time.
