Automotive Product Design & Development DelphiDownload Now
This Delphi report describes the North American auto industry’s perspective on the current and future state of various issues surrounding the product design process and its impact on product design success. The Delphi forecast affords the ability to investigate industry trends using a relatively small expert panel. While the Delphi panel is small when compared to a traditional survey, work done by the Rand Corporation for the U.S. Air Force in the late 1960s indicates that a small panel of experts with an interactive review of results can be a highly effective method of forecasting. The Delphi forecasting process is a systematic forecasting process where a select panel of knowledgeable experts is asked to respond to a set of survey questions. The responses are statistically analyzed, and shown to the panel. Depending on the resulting level of consensus, the individual panelists are invited to revise their original responses. This process helps develop a consensus in opinion-based surveys.
