11. Manufacturability
Off-the-shelf Components
Accounts for 60% of vehicle cost
Excellent quality
Fully-integrated into vehicle design
12. Manufacturability
Bulk Production through Laser Cutting/Waterjetting
Uprights are a good example
Cost effective due to reduced machine time
Fast turnaround with minimal tooling costs
