Abstract: The use of computers in product development is demanded by the need to add engineering capability and to make existing engineering and technical personnel more efficient. Designing car and truck products so that they give more value for money and use less energy requires computer tools, much as manufacturing quality today depends on automation and robots.

Keywords: vehicle design; product development; computer-aided design; CAD; energy saving; computer effectiveness; education.
