Automobile Test Case- 2017 Chevy Malibu

This test case is based on the Automobile Template structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Malibu. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the 2017 Malibu program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the 2017 Malibu nor has any attempt been made to simulate the mutilple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the automobile template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known automobile program.
