Future Trends in Engine Development: Possible Consequences for Component and System Suppliers
R. Deckers, FEV Motorentechnik
Future requirements in engine technology can most likely be met only by developing new technologies especially in the field of components and modules. Rapid and high quality development needs modern development techniques. System suppliers are expected to not only deliver their modules, but also do have to control all effects on total engine and in-vehicle behaviour. Specialised engineering and development companies can offer an economical and qualitatively competent co-operation between suppliers and OEM's.
